A three-storey seafront property in Devon is on the market for a jaw-dropping £45,000 despite being covered in bird droppings.

The Ilfracombe house is in such a bad condition that potential buyers aren't allowed to go inside. Instead they can watch a virtual tour.

According to West Country estate agent Webbers, it's a "renovation project not for the faint-hearted!"

The property is also covered in damp and mould, with several rooms exposed to the elements. Credit: Panoptic Motion

One newspaper is reporting that the previous tenant had to flee the house because of an "extreme bird poo issue".

The second and third floors are covered in bird mess along with old belongings, rubbish and dirt.

On the market for the first time in nearly 40 years, it's also missing a staircase to the first floor. There's currently a ladder propped up to allow access to the rest of house.

These aren't the only problems. Many areas throughout the property have broken windows and ceilings, leaving it "open to the elements".

There are also "several areas of rot and dampness" which require any buyer to completely strip out the contents and rebuild it from scratch.

Despite its problems, the house comes with views of Ilfracombe seafront and the Bristol Channel. Credit: Panoptic Motion

Located in the oldest part of the town and fairly close to the seafront, the house has views over the Bristol Channel and distant Welsh coastline.
