400 Dean Village Apartment
Dean Village apartment is situated in the heart of Edinburgh’s historic Dean Village, a peaceful retreat on the Waters of Leith, only a few minutes’ walk from the west end of Princes Street. Dean Village was the centre of the milling industry from the middle ages and this beautiful apartment is part of Westmills an old mill redeveloped as housing in the 1970s. The area is very picturesque and its peaceful green and leafy ambience belies its proximity to the city centre. There is easy access to the Waters of Leith walk way from the village which leads you along by the river on a scenic walk towards the Royal Botanical gardens and Leith in one direction and to the museum of Modern Art and the Dean Gallery in the other.
