The Seely was a pioneering plane from the earliest days of Filton Airfield, having first flown in 1920. Fast forward 101 years and that high-altitude aircraft is the inspiration for a tall and imposing three storey townhouse.
Located on a beautifully landscaped crescent, The Seely is a contemporary, red-brick home that really makes a statement. With three bedrooms set over more than 1400 sq ft - including a beautifully light front-to-back living room - it offers an abundance of inside space as well as a sophisticated outdoor terrace.
Generous windows allow light and air to flood deep into each room. The open plan kitchen and dining room is the welcoming heart of the home. And the intricate brickwork of the façade is an indicator of the exceptional build quality that comes as standard in a Brabazon home.
The Seely is a high-altitude aircraft with two pairs of wings which first took flight in 1920. Equipped with a supercharged Jupiter III engine, the plane made its debut at the Air Ministry flying competition, inspiring viewers about the future of air-travel. One of its defining features is the aeroplanes straight cut tail which is emulated in the flat roof of Brabazon’s, The Seely.
