1630 Revello Drive was the address of the Summers residence in Revello Drive, Sunnydale.[1][2][3]

History[]

Buffy Summers and her mother, Joyce, moved from Los Angeles to 1630 Revello Drive in Sunnydale, following Buffy's expulsion from Hemery High School for having burned down the school's gymnasium in a fight against local vampires.[4]

Buffy's friends, Alexander Harris and Willow Rosenberg, were frequent visitors to the Summers' home,[5][6][7] as was Buffy's fellow Slayer Faith Lehane[8][9] and the vampire Angel.[1][10][11][12][9] Classmate Cordelia Chase also occasionally visited,[10] as did Buffy's Watcher, Rupert Giles.[5][13][14][7]

Dawn Summers joined Buffy and her mother as a resident in the house.[15] After Joyce's death, the house's occupants included Willow and Tara Maclay,[16] Xander, Giles, Faith, ex-demon Anya Jenkins,[citation needed] Amy Madison,[17] reformed vampire Spike, reformed villain Andrew Wells,[18] and several Potential Slayers. The house was their headquarters in the war against the First Evil and its henchmen.[citation needed]

During this time, several vampires received invitations, e.g. Darla, Angel,[1][19] Spike,[20][21] Dracula,[22] and Harmony Kendall.[15]

The house was presumably destroyed along with the rest of Sunnydale by following the battle at the Hellmouth.[23]

A wide concrete sidewalk led from the curb, through the middle of the front yard, past palms and other trees and through a gap in a low hedge that fronted the porch, to a short flight of steps that led up to the front door, on either side of which were picture windows flanked by tall, narrower windows. The porch, spanning the width of the house, was overhung by part of the residence's roof, which was supported by four pillars, the two beside the steps having brick pedestals.[citation needed]

Facing the house, was a driveway to the right which led alongside the house.[24][25] The backyard stretched back to a fence which opened onto an alley.[26]

Neighbors[]

Buffy's neighbor, Mrs. Kalish, lived next door at 1628 Revello Drive until she was killed by Norman Pfister, a member of the Order of Taraka, so that he could use her place as a surveillance post from which to spy on Buffy. The same villain later trapped Xander and Cordelia in Buffy's basement after he appeared on the doorstep in the guise of a salesman giving away free cosmetics samples.[12]

Dawn's friend Melinda also lived on the same street.[75]

Behind the scenes[]

  • The address of the house is incorrectly shown in a letter as 1630 Crestview, Sunnydale, CA 95037 in episode "As You Were". It's explicitly identified as Revello Drive in episodes "Angel", "The Body", and "Dirty Girls".
  • The actual house that was used for exterior shots was an occupied house on 1313 Cota Avenue, in Torrance, California. It was only three blocks north of Torrance High School, which doubled as the Sunnydale High School.
  • It was used for some first floor interior scenes during season 1. The easiest way to determine whether the interior scenes are on the set or in the actual house is to look at the bend in the stairs: in the actual house, the bend is rounded, while the bend on the set is a 90-degree angle.
  • All second floor scenes were filmed on sets and the second floor plan does not match the floor plan of the actual house.
  • The view of the house in "The Prom" seems to also show a window on the side of the house in the dining room, although no actual window is present in the dining room in the show. In the actual house that was used for filming, this driveway does lead to a garage which opens onto the alley.
