The location: Saying Goodbye to Harrison & Nanny
They painted the apartment house for this scene (as you can see in the photo below).
Oddly enough, it is not the same apartment house they used earlier in the season as the nanny's home, but it is on the same street. That original nanny house was at 1422 Gordon, which is seven houses to the north of this one.
This apartment house was earlier seen in Season 3 as Anton's Apartment House.
Elsewhere on Gordon Street, they shot Boyd Fowler's House, Mario's House (the Skinner's assistant), Teegan's House, the Supposedly Empty House, Christine's Apartment House, and Doakes' Apartment House.

This is a private apartment house.
Do not trespass on their property,
Q. How the heck did you figure out where it was?
A. In previous seasons, I've usually had to hunt down the locations after viewing the episodes, using clues from the various scenes. By the 5th season, though, I'd developed a small group of fans, spies & tipsters who kept an eye out for Dexter filming in their neighborhoods, and would let me know in advance when something was about to film there.
Between those reports, and my own personal reconnaissance around town, by the time the first episode aired, I already knew most (but not all) of the filming locations, and only needed to watch the episodes and match up the scenes with the correct locations.
This group of helpful fans includes Kerry, Rick, Joel, Geoff, Ellen, Julie, Susan, Jeff, and others. My thanks to all of them.
tip came from Rick, who was on Gordon
Street when they filmed the scene, and who shot the photos above. (Thanks, Rick!)
