Percy House – the newly-renovated base for the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation
Percy House is an historic 18th century building, situated just a stone’s throw the THFC Stadium. Built on the site of The Black House, a mansion demolished in the early 1740s, with inhabitants, the Percy family, connected to the namesake of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club – Harry Hotspur.
A grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund and matched funding from THFC has enabled the full restoration of the former townhouse to secure its long-term future in the area. Percy House now acts as a major community enterprise, employment and skills hub located at the heart of the regeneration of North Tottenham.
Careful modern-day repair work has ensured many of the original features of Percy House have been restored including wooden shutters, wooden flooring and wooden wall panelling – providing a fantastic setting for the Foundation to continue its work at the very heart of the local community.
Former Percy House resident, Dr Chris Moffatt, “I last saw the house quite a few years ago around the time of my mother’s funeral in 1995 and it was all boarded up and looking very sad, so you can imagine my delight that it now has a brand new function and with none other than Tottenham Hotspur FC.This is more than I ever thought possible. The old building certainly deserves it.”
