Newfargie House is the original house on Newfargie Estate and has a dominant position on the brow of a hill with far reaching views over the Tay Valley to the Highlands beyond.
The estate comprises about 15 properties all in the policies of the former mansion. The properties are all in separate ownership with their own large gardens. The landowner maintains the access road with the costs shared by the house owners.
Newfargie is in a rural but not isolated location, with the village of Glenfarg being 4 miles away and Perth 10 miles. Glenfarg is a charming village with a primary school (Arngask Primary School) while secondary education is available at Kinross High School. More extensive retail and leisure facilities can be found in Perth. There are a number of private schools within convenient reach including Dollar Academy, Strathallan, Kilgraston, Glenalmond College and Craigclowan Preparatory School.
Newfargie House benefits from excellent road links thanks to its proximity to the M90 both northbound and southbound. The location is ideal for the commuter, being accessible to Perth, Dundee, Edinburgh and Stirling. There is a Park and Ride facility at Kinross with coach services to Perth, Edinburgh and Edinburgh Airport. Perth has a mainline train station and Edinburgh Airport with its wide range of domestic and international flights is 34 miles to the south.
Newfargie House was built for a General Trevelyan in around 1865. It was a much larger house at that time with a wing to the side which has subsequently been restricted to one floor.
A fire destroyed part of the house in the 1970s after which it was partially rebuilt. It is now a good sized family home which retains much of its original character. The house is well laid out over three floors with the majority of the rooms arranged to benefit from the views.

Around the house is an enclosed courtyard garden which houses the private water supply, lean to garage, wood store, greenhouse, former icehouse, and game larder.
