"So, we've given a dozen different houses every protection we can throw at them. They all look like they could be the place we're going to hide you, they've all got some connection with the Order: my house, Kingsley's place, Molly's Auntie Muriel's – you get the idea."
Alastor Moody instructs Harry Potter on how he will be moved from Privet Drive in 1997[src]

Alastor Moody's house was the residence of Alastor Moody, retired ex-Auror.[1]



Just before the start of the 1994–1995 school year, Moody was ambushed at his home by Barty Crouch Jnr and Peter Pettigrew. As Moody was meant to take over as the Defence Against the Dark Arts Professor that year, Crouch and Pettigrew subdued him and used Polyjuice Potion so that Crouch could take Moody's place. They then set off Moody's dustbins to cover the disturbance.[2]


As Moody was a member of the Order of the Phoenix, he allowed his home to be used as one of the Order's safehouses. In late July of 1997, it was one of the locations Order members retreated to after the Battle of the Seven Potters.[1]
