Real Estate Friday

A fine Grade 'C' Listed residential estate in the heart of tranquil
Galloway countryside.

Corsemalzie Estate dates from 1834 and is built of whinstone with granite corner stones under a slate roof. A private driveway leads through mature woodland over a picturesque bridge up to a tarmac sweep to the east side of the house. The east façade has an impressive entrance with a heraldic shield and motto above and the south façade has bay windows looking out from the drawing room and dining room.

Internally, the house is presented in immaculate decorative order and has many fine period features. The entrance foyer has contrasting black and white mosaic floor tiling and imposing Corinthian columns.

The principal public rooms feature dressed solid oak Livonett flooring and delicately carved marble fireplaces. Deep cornicing and intricate wall plasterwork are a feature of Corsemalzie. The kitchen whilst traditional, is beautifully remodelled and features a grand central island and ample space for informal dining and breakfasting.

Ante rooms on the ground floor provide for a live-in staff flat as well as a staff/guest wing.

The first floor is split at the three quarter landing leading first to principal bedroom accommodation of 3 grand suites, all generous and with sumptuous en suite bathrooms; the second split leads to a further 7 guest bedrooms all with en suite bathrooms.The second floor has a study, good sized home office and a bath room.

The outbuildings are in good order and are located to the rear of the house, and are arranged to form an enclosed dog run.


Outbuildings include 3 garages, a generator room, a workshop, a boiler/electrics room, a general purpose store, a dog kennel & enclosed run, and a garden equipment store.


Corsemalzie is set within grounds of some 33 acres. A dry stone bellmouth entrance with electronic security porter system and remote controlled gates leads to a private driveway. The driveway is flanked by the picturesque Malzie burn, colourful rhododendrons and mature trees and opens to a sweep in front of the house.

Formal gardens include a terraced lawn in front of the house and a private lawn at the rear.
The formal gardens extend to the woodland fringes which feature the unhurried passing of the Malzie burn. Wildlife is a feature of Corsemalzie, the semi ancient native woodlands providing an ideal habitat for many forms of wildlife including roe deer, otters and an extensive range of native and migratory birds.
