Fish tank disaster knocks two thirds off value of luxury home


A luxury apartment in New Zealand has had its value slashed by a third - after a fish tank in the apartment above it overflowed!

The one-bedroom apartment, overlooking Wellington harbour was previously on the market for $1.85 (around £760,800), but will now go under the hammer on October 8 with bidding starting at just $550,000/£226,180, reports NZ Herald.
The wrecked apartment was apparently once one of the most amazing on Oriental Parade, with a fit out that would have won awards. but it is now described as being stripped bare and just a ‘blank canvas’. The fish tank responsible has since been removed from the upstairs apartment.
Should you be interested in making a bid, you can find the ad for the apartment on the Trade Me site.
