Exceptional three bedroom, two bathroom apartment offering 1,427 sq.ft. Of accommodation in the iconic Empire, built in 1901, with stunning views over Bath Abbey and the Guildhall, Bath. In the heart of the world heritage city of Bath, close to Bath Abbey, the River Avon, Pulteney Bridge and Weir, Waitrose and a short flat walk to Bath Spa railway station, all make this location hard to beat.
The Empire was originally built as a luxury hotel in 1901, commissioned by the Admiralty in 1939, and, in the mid-1990s converted into exclusive apartments for the over 50s. The service charge is the same for all apartments, regardless of size, and this is one of only eight three bedroom apartments.
This sixth floor apartment, with lift access, offers three bedrooms, two bathrooms and one reception room. The double aspect sitting room is bright and sunny and has views over the Guildhall and north to Camden Crescent and St Stephen’s church. The other window looks out over Bath Abbey. This is an L shaped room, perfect for entertaining, with ample room for a dining table. The kitchen which leads off the sitting room is also a light filled room with views of Bath Abbey and has been the scene of many happy family gatherings.
There are three double bedrooms, one of which is currently used as a study. All the bedrooms have spectacular Bath views. The master, which has an en suite bathroom has views over Parade Gardens, the river, Abbey Green and across to Widcombe and beyond to green hills. The other two bedrooms look down on the dome of the Guildhall market and the romantic rooves of Georgian Bath. The third bedroom is opposite a large shower room.
Extensive communal facilities include an administrator on-site, two lifts, impressive lounge and dining rooms, three guest suites, cinema room, laundrette, billiard room, craft room, exercise room, sauna, library and award winning roof garden. The lounge and dining room are available for residents for private parties or events, such as a book launch. Every Monday there is a coffee morning, some dinners throughout the year and a film club, and at Christmas pupils of King Edward’s come and sing carols and there is a superb Christmas dinner as well. There is an active community within the Empire for those who wish to take advantage of it, while several residents are based abroad and use the Empire as a very secure base in the heart of Bath, with excellent transport links to London and Bristol airport.
This spacious apartment in the Empire, with impressive entertaining space and superb panoramic views, also offers all the galleries, restaurants, theatres, sporting events and unique shops in Bath literally on the doorstep. The vendor says: “It is the brilliant views over the city that really make this light filled apartment stand out; that combined with the incredible location with the whole of the delights of Bath on offer make living here really exceptional."

The apartment is being sold with no onward chain.
