Full description

Bathed in natural light, this well cared for 3rd floor apartment, which benefits from two lifts and a sweeping mahogany staircase, boasts 6 foot high windows with expansive sweeping views over The Rec, across to the Parade Gardens, the River Avon, Pulteney Weir, Bath's beautiful cityscape and surrounding countryside.
Complementing its showstopping views, no. 20 offers high ceilings and generously proportioned rooms including a large walk-in shower room and king-sized bedroom, cornicing throughout and plenty of built-in cupboard space. It also benefits from an EPC rating C.

The Empire enjoys its own vibrant community and impressive communal areas: As well as boasting its own concierge, there is a small library, lovely light-drenched lounge area with popular subsidised bar, a dining room that hosts popular bi-weekly Sunday lunches, plus a billiard room, sauna, fitness room and even a cinema room which hosts film evenings every Monday. The residents are close-knit and welcoming, frequently organising various days and nights out together.
Meanwhile, The Empire's pretty communal garden complete with pergola, raised flower beds and ample seating areas with views of Bath Abbey's spires and the beautiful surrounding Georgian rooftops of Bath's historic quarter is, unsurprisingly, a consistent winner of the 'Best Small Garden' Bath in Bloom award.
There are also three guest suites which can be rented for a nominal fee.
