A magnificent place to call home

Built in the early 18th century, Frognal House is the birthplace and residence of Thomas Townshend, 1st Viscount Sydney, after whom Sydney in Australia was named. It has the feel of a country residence, but is set close to many local amenities - including the local hospital - with good access to Kent and Central London. Set in 7 acres of beautiful grounds, the community is resident to numerous British birds including woodpeckers and kestrels. Stroll in the beautiful grounds and find a quiet corner and bench to relax and admire the stunning setting of Sunrise Senior Living at Frognal. This magnificent home possesses extensive care facilities including expert Assisted Living care and Reminiscence, a specialised, separate neighbourhood for seniors suffering from memory loss.
