This modern-day four-bedroom farmhouse near Swindon is the most expensive property on the market in the area, but it used to be even more expensive. 

Selbrook House, located in Nine Elms on the north west side of the town, is over 121 years old but is 'fully equipped for modern-day living'.

The McFarlane-marketed property was once up for sale for £2.5 million, and in 2022 it had been reduced to £2.2 million

It is still for now now, and is currently on the market for a guide price of £1.95 million but this still makes it Swindon's most expensive property for sale currently, according to Zoopla

Swindon Advertiser: The house and groundsIt was built some 121 years ago with imposing red (engineering) brick elevations and slate roof, but has since been extended by the current owners to include a double-storey extension and contemporary garden room.

Inside there is a bespoke kitchen breakfast room, a signature garden room that "boasts views of the expansive, lawned garden", and four double bedrooms with en-suites to both master and guest rooms.

Outside, there is a detached bungalow (used as an office) and extensive views of the countryside as well as a bespoke covered timber outside entertainment area.
