1630 Revello Drive was the address of Buffy Summers and her family in Sunnydale.[1]

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.

Buffy's friends, Xander Harris and Willow Rosenberg, were frequent visitors to the Summers' home, as was Buffy’s fellow slayer, Faith Lehane, and Buffy's boyfriend, the vampire Angel. Classmate Cordelia Chase also occasionally visited, as did Buffy's Watcher, Rupert Giles.

Dawn Summers joined Buffy and her mother as a resident in the house. After Joyce's death, the house's occupants included (at various times) Willow and Tara Maclay, Xander, Giles, Faith, ex-demon Anya Jenkins, Amy Madison (while in rat form and briefly afterward), reformed vampire Spike, reformed villain Andrew Wells, and several Potential Slayers. The house was their headquarters in the war against the First Evil and its henchmen.

During this time, several vampires received invitations, e.g., Darla, Angel, Spike, Dracula and Harmony Kendall

It was presumably destroyed along with the rest of Sunnydale by following the Battle at the Hellmouth.

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.

  2. The driveway can be seen in "Dead Man's Party" and "The Prom". 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.

  4. 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.
