The southerly views from the upper floors of the house, out over the Firth of Forth and along the Fife coastline, are outstanding. Newburn is located in the East Neuk of Fife - a wonderful, sought after corner of the county, running from Largo Bay all the way to St Andrews, comprising quaint fishing villages perched around pretty harbours, amazing beaches and fertile farmland.

The area is well suited for walking, cycling and horse riding, with the Fife Pony Club available for younger enthusiasts.

A newly constructed secondary school (Madras College) is located in St Andrews with private schooling available in the town at St Leonards and also the High School of Dundee. The area around Newburn is well suited for golfers with a number of highly rated courses within easy striking distance such as Ladybank, Crail, Lundin Links, Kingsbarns and the already renowned new championship course at Dumbarnie Links which is only a mile from the house. Edinburgh is within an hour's drive of Newburn whilst Edinburgh Airport provides both domestic and international flights and is approximately a 45 minute drive away. There are railway stations at Kirkcaldy, Ladybank, Markinch and Cupar. Description The original centre section of Newburn School House is believed to date from around 1632 when it was used as a school room. The house was then extended into its present form circa 1850. Further additions were made in 1930 with the new space serving as the local village hall. The property was purchased and upgraded by the current owners in 2007 who worked with Lorn Macneal Architects to form the superb family home which exists today. Newburn School House is a truly superb Scottish country property, combining charming traditional rooms in the west wing with impressive, large open plan contemporary rooms in the east wing. The main front door leads to a hall with a drawing room to the side whilst at the heart of the house is the beautiful spacious kitchen which has a south facing door to a south facing terrace and front garden and two doorways leading through to the main family sitting room. The school room beyond also has an outside door and is a fabulous games, party, exercise or yoga room. The north part of the house comprises a boot room opposite the back door with the library/tv room behind.
