Candlers, a stunning nine-bedroom house on Redenhall Road will be auctioned by Durrants on Wednesday, November 30 for a guide price of between £580,000 and £620,000.

Dating back to the late 17th century, the Grade II listed building boasts a beautiful Queen Anne frontage, four bathrooms, Victorian outbuildings, garaging, gig house and south facing gardens.

Some work and refurnishing is required of the house, which will allow someone the exciting opportunity to put their own stamp on the property.

The name Candlers, refers to a Dr John Candler who occupied the house from 1835 and set up his practice there, with surgeries being held at the dispensary cottage at the northern end of the main house.
