Property description

The Empire is one of Bath's landmark buildings situated in the very centre of the city. Originally built as a hotel in 1901, commissioned by the Admiralty during the war years, and, in the mid 1990's, converted into exclusive apartments for the over 50's.

A grandiose entrance hall and original mahogany staircase immediately establish this building's credibility. Residents' drawing and function rooms are located on the ground floor, along with lifts that provide access to the lower ground floor communal facilities and to all apartment levels.

Apartment 45 offers one bedroom, one bathroom, sitting/dining room and kitchen.

Communal facilities include guest suites, cinema room, laundrette, billiard room, craft room, exercise room, sauna, library and roof garden. The Empire will appeal to those seeking a rather special secure base in the city centre, with glorious far reaching views, and Bath's fashionable shopping areas on the door step.
