A house covered in seashells has sold for £120,000.

''absolutely to her taste'', but she was keen on the home because it's so ''eccentric''

The three-storey property in Dartmouth, south west England, was purchased by local radio journalist Louise Cotton, who admits the abode isn't ''absolutely to her taste'', but she was keen on the home because it's so ''eccentric''.

She told the Metro newspaper: ''I wouldn't say it was absolutely my taste but it is unusual, it has loads of personality and I think it's great to see something that's different and eccentric.

''I wouldn't have the imagination to do something like that and I admire the people who do. Lots of people have asked me if I'm going to get rid of the shells, their assumption is that they're awful but I don't agree.''
