In the 60s The Alvin Show series, the Seville house showcases a loose Spanish style. This version of the Seville House is the only one to have a flat roof and one of the two to have a single car garage. The facade is a light yellow, though in the original run of the series one wouldn't know the color given the series ran in black and white. A television antenna is mounted to the roof containing a treble clef shape within.
In the 80s Alvin and the Chipmunks series, the Seville House showcases a loose Colonial style. The exterior roof and shutters are a pinkish-red color with the main siding of the building painted white. The house consists of two stories, with the upper story containing The Chipmunks' bedrooms, a fireplace, and is the last take of the Seville House to have a garage. The front yard is large and surrounded by the classic white picket fence.
Later in the series Dave tells the boys in the episode The Chipmunks Story how he came to take care of them. In this episode the original 80s Seville House is shown to be a small, leaky wooden shack. The shack in a single story building with three rooms (a bedroom, kitchen, and dining/living room), a stone fireplace, and little furniture. It's not until Dave gets a raise and The Chipmunks' first song, "Witch Doctor," grosses enough money does Dave buy the house seen throughout the 80s series.
In the first two CGI/live-action films, the Seville House showcases a Bungalow style. The exterior roof is made of black shingles while the house itself is white. The house is a single story, contains a fireplace, and is the only adaptation of the Seville House to have a front porch. The Chipettes moved in with Dave and The Chipmunks only at the end of second CGI/live-action film, Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel, and do not live with The Chipmunks in the 80s series.
In the CGI ALVINNN!!! and The Chipmunks series, the Seville House showcases a Georgian Revival style. The exterior roof is a blueish-grey while the body of the house is made of masonry with five shuttered front windows around a large red door. The house is two stories, and, like the previous appearances of the Seville House, was build with a fireplace. This series house also has a basement and multiple hidden rooms. Vines cover part of the facade and is surrounded by a white picketed fence. A patio encircles an in-ground pool in the backyard.
In the fourth CGI/live-action film, Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip, the Seville House showcases a Dutch Colonial style. The external roof is grey and features the classic "barn house" shape. The house is two stories and retains a fireplace and small porch from the previous CGI house. The front yard is one of the smallest of the Seville household renditions though is heavily landscaped.
- Coincidentally, the CGI films' address, 1958, is the year that Alvin and the Chipmunks were created.
- The live-action filming address of the Seville House is 1544 North Saint Andrews Place Los Angeles, CA 90028.
- The live-action Seville House was built in 1919 and was part of a rare Hollywood bungalow courtyard.
