Geerings is a characterful period property. The oldest part of the house dates back to the late 15th century. It was acquired by John Sheppard, an architect, in the 1930s and was modernised and extended, with care being taken to preserve period features while providing modern day accommodation. The largest of the old farm buildings, dated 1715, was converted into garages. In 2012 the house was again updated, with new bathrooms and kitchen, re-wiring and re-plumbing.
Approached by a fence lined tarmac driveway to a 5 bar gated entrance, this distinctive home is Grade II listed and is a restored timber framed building with plaster infilling with the south wing being tile-hung with a half-hipped gable. It has a partial Horsham stone roof and casement windows.
Within the house there are many distinctive and attractive features including polished parquet floors, solid oak doors, exposed ceiling and wall timbers, bespoke fireplaces and a carved wooden staircase.
The kitchen is modern and has a central island with breakfast bar. There are a range of wall and base units, stylish granite type worktops throughout, together with Bosch appliances of integrated electric hob, oven and dishwasher and a double fronted fridge freezer. A part glazed door from the kitchen leads into a side entrance hallway with a walk-in pantry. A separate utility room provides space and plumbing for a washing machine.
A particular feature is the drawing room with its substantial inglenook fireplace. This lovely room looks out onto a stone terrace and the lawn and flowerbeds beyond. The south side of the house overlooking the terrace is planted with climbing roses which make quite a spectacle to observe in the summer.There is a study, a large dining room and a cloakroom on the ground floor.
The upper landing runs the length of the house with bedrooms and bathrooms leading off to both sides. The master bedroom which has a vaulted ceiling has been opened up to include a bathroom area with roll top bath, basin and built in wardrobe with a separate WC tucked away in the far corner. The room is generously proportioned, has a built-in storage cupboard and has views over the garden to the fields beyond.
There are four further double bedrooms and one single bedroom on this level. Three of the four double rooms have wash basins.Completing the first floor is a separate WC and two modern bathrooms, one with shower cubicle and one with bath and separate shower cubicle.
Two outside doors next to the back door lead into the boiler room and a gardener's WC.
Approaching the house there is a large garage block which also houses the oil-fired boiler and filtration for the adjacent swimming pool. The pool has a paved patio and a changing room, and is protected by a cupressus hedge.
Between the garages and the house there is a further outbuilding arranged as a summerhouse, garden room and store. (The store has been used as a stable).
