A BRIEF HISTORY A quintessential William and Mary residence typical of important houses from that period. Occupied by Thomas Warburton, Archdeacon of Norwich from 1763 to 1797.

Candlers has been a doctors house since 1853 when Dr John Candler set up his practice there. He and his son were friends of Sir Alfred Munnings KCVO, past president of the Royal Academy. Dr Candler's eldest son Edmund was a well known novelist and travel writer of his time and a friend and correspondent of E M Forster and Joseph Conrad.  

ACCOMMODATION See floorplan. Currently notionally configured with the dispensary cottage shaded blue, the apartment shaded pink and the main house uncoloured. 

OUTSIDE A ledged and braced entrance gate leads through to a gravelled parking and turning area flanked by a Victorian brick and tiled range of outbuildings:
FORMER STABLE 4.66m x 2.74m
GIG HOUSE 6.94M X 4.77M with sliding vehicular doors
GARAGE 4.78m x 4.77m with double doors
FIRST FLOOR accommodation over 14.4m x 4.88m with ladder thereto.
GARDEN STORE 2.60m x 1.49m The mature gardens are unusually extensive and private for a town centre location. Lying mainly to the south-east of the house, they comprise lawns, paved areas, rose and flower beds, vegetable and fruit gardens, tall yew hedges and many fine trees including two magnificent limes and a fruit-bearing mulberry tree. 

LOCATION Candlers occupies a town centre position in Harleston, the latter having a wide range of independently owned shops, a supermarket, doctors, dentists, veterinary surgeries and schools to age 16.

Southwold on the North Sea heritage coast line is about 22 miles, the Norfolk Broads, navigable from Beccles(15 miles) and the city of Norwich about 20 miles, the principal shopping and commercial centre for the county with international airport.
