The sought-after village of Newport on Tay is conveniently located for the commuter and benefits from the wealth of local amenities including shops, restaurants and schooling. It is well positioned for access to Dundee, Cupar and St. Andrews with Perth, Aberdeen and Edinburgh also within comfortable driving distance. The city of Dundee is a short drive to the north over the Tay Bridge with a full range of shops and amenities as well as the new V & A museum and Captain Scott’s RRS Discovery. Cupar, historically Fife’s county market town is a nine mile drive to the south and offers a good range of shops and services as well as a popular monthly farmers’ market whilst the ancient and historic university town of St. Andrews, renowned as the “Home of Golf” is eleven miles to the south-east. North East Fife provides easy access to an area of particularly outstanding and varied countryside along with a wonderful coastline. As a result there are a wide range of outdoor activities on hand with walking, cycling, sailing and riding all readily available. It is perhaps golf for which Fife is most well-known however with numerous top-rated courses in the area including the world famous Old Course at St. Andrews which regularly hosts the Open Championship, next due to visit in 2022 for its 150th anniversary. There are good state primary and secondary schools in the area with independent schooling on hand at St. Leonards in St. Andrews and also the High School of Dundee. There are railway stations in Leuchars, Cupar, Ladybank and Dundee with Edinburgh airport about one hour to the south.



Comprising the original main door ground floor classrooms of a former village school, 33 Cupar Road is an impressive period property believed to date originally from around 1850. Of a delightful stone exterior, the unique accommodation is beautifully presented and has been extensively refurbished and improved by the current owner. The result is an outstanding and deceptively spacious main door apartment of generous proportions. Accessed off the main hall the accommodation, which retains an abundance of period detail including original ornate cornicing, comprises a well-proportioned sitting room with open fire, high ceiling and large windows, bright main bedroom, second bedroom, bathroom with travertine floor and kitchen which seats two with a flip-down oak table. The kitchen cupboards are clad in vintage New York tin-plate and the kitchen floor is natural slate. There is a 6-burner Smeg stove. The painted working shutters in the kitchen are a particular feature of the room. Completing the accommodation is the “secret” speakeasy home bar – behind a secret bookcase door - the bar itself is mahogany whilst the ceiling is gold leaf and the lights are original art deco Odeon shell lights. Certain items and furniture such as the fenders may be available to purchase by way of separate negotiation and are not included in the sale.             



The well stocked front garden at 33 Cupar Road goes with the property and includes the useful storage sheds and large compost bins. The storage sheds currently house wheelie bins, fuel and garden items.
