Frogmore House is an early 18th Century merchants house built on the outskirts of Watford, which is now part of Greater London, but previously was a prosperous market town surrounded by countryside.  Frogmore House remained privately owned and occupied until the early 20th Century with only minor additions and changes, including late 19th Century bay windows and a closet wing. 

    By the late 20th Century Frogmore was part of an adjacent gas works and was subdivided into flats circa 1951.  A period of neglect followed post-1972 when the last occupant moved out.  Extensive water ingress led to outbreaks of dry rot and the building was placed on the ‘At Risk’ register in the 1990’s  

    GQA are now working with St William homes to completely restore the exterior and interior of the building for office use.  This involves complete repair and refurbishment of roofs, external and internal joinery including elaborate stairs and an entrance porch. The project is due for completion in late 2020.
