A rotting villa transformed into a Grey Lynn masterpiece sold for $2.825 million, the Herald can finally reveal.

The house sold later that week but the real estate agents refused to say how much for and who the buyers were.
That price is pretty insane considering the state it was in! Location, location, location...
