Thierry Henry has lodged controversial plans to demolish his £5.9?million north London house and replace it with a larger property – incorporating a 40ft high fish tank that will cost £250,000 to build.
The former Arsenal striker wants to rebuild his luxury home – which was completed only in 1999 and is described as one of the finest examples of modern architecture in the UK – to accommodate it.
Stretching 40ft from the bottom of his house to the very top, it will take 5,500 gallons of water to fill, house 300 fish and cost a staggering £250,000 to build. His proposals detail the extravagant four-storey aquarium.

To be honest if we had as much money as Thierry Henry then we may well opt for such an extravagance. Clearly the man likes fish and wants to be able to see them as he walks down the stairs of his London home. Would be great if he could construct a lift that travels through the Aquarium but that may be a bit too much.
