- ↑ The address of the house is also shown as 1630 Crestview, Sunnydale, CA 95037 in episode "As You Were".
- ↑ 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.
- ↑ Warren entered the backyard through the gate from the alley in "Seeing Red".
- ↑ 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.
