Newburn House

An outstanding listed Georgian country house, located in an enviable position in the Fife countryside, is on sale with leading Scottish property consultants CKD Galbraith. Dating back to 1818 - 1820, Newburn House was designed by Alexander Leslie as the manse for Newburn Parish Church, the ruins of which can still be visited today.  


Set in the midst of some of Scotland’s most stunning countryside, just a short distance to the east of Upper Largo and only three miles from Elie, Newburn enjoys a fantastic country setting offering immense privacy and delightful views over the Forth Estuary.


The house is immaculately presented offering substantial accommodation over three floors with 3 stunning reception rooms and five good bedrooms. The house presents a traditional yet cosy feel, with delightful window seats in many of the public rooms and original fireplaces throughout.


The opulence of Newburn is evident when you first step foot in the impressive hallway, with a flagged stone floor and a grand sweeping staircase leading up to a magnificent landing with curved ceiling and elaborate centre piece.


Well appointed public rooms provide charming living space including a wonderful drawing room with stunning marble fireplace and dining room with an ancillary carving recess. Newburn is a fantastic home for family living and entertaining guests with its very own wine cellar, music room and fantastic public rooms.


The former stable block of Newburn has been converted into three excellent and most attractive cottages, Old Hall Cottages, Stables Cottage and Gate Lodge Cottage. All are set around a private courtyard along with a small private garden and charming water well. The delightful cottages provide ample accommodation on one level ideal for guest accommodation or would make for a self-catering holiday lets business.


George Lorimer, who is handling the sale for CKD Galbraith, said: “Newburn offers the opportunity to acquire a fantastic family house in the beautiful Kingdom of Fife, within easy reach of both Edinburgh and St Andrews. The Georgian style and period characteristics of the property set it apart as a truly special place and the separate cottages are perfect accommodation for extended family or visiting friends. Properties of this calibre in this location very rarely come to the market and this is an excellent opportunity to purchase an extremely desirable residence.”


The grounds of Newburn extend to approximately 1.6 acres and are extremely striking, representing a succession of carefully planned rooms offering a tranquil haven. The conservatory at the rear of the house brings the outdoors in, with beautiful views across the lovely mature gardens and orchard with its own harvest of cherries, apples and figs.  


The Kingdom of Fife offers an abundance of outdoor pursuits, beautiful countryside and stunning coast line with award winning beaches at Elie, Crail, St Andrews and Kirkcaldy. Newburn is ideally located in the midst of some of the best golfing, fishing and shooting around. The world renowned Old Course at St Andrews is just a short drive away along with many top quality courses available in Fife including Elie. 


A good range of local services and facilities are available in Lower Largo, Elie and Leven, with a wider choice on offer at St Andrews and the lively market town of Cupar. The cities of Dundee and Perth are within a comfortable driving distance with Edinburgh being only 45 minutes drive. 


Newburn House along with the three cottages is being sold as a whole, price on application.
