Harrison's Kill-List Party House
Q. What is it actually in real life?
A. A large home, but a long way from New York.
Q. Where can I find it in real life?
A. In the real world, this estate is located at 20 Pegan Lane, in Dover, Massachusetts.
The photo below was shot by Ron B..
According to real estate listings, this colonial home has five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and over 8,700 square feet, sitting on seven a half acres of land.
Dover, Massachusetts is located about 15 miles southwest of Boston, at about 75 miles southeast of Shelburne Falls (where they found most of the downtown Iron Lake locations).
Here is a Google StreetView map of the house:
Q. How the heck did you figure out where it was?
We had been looking at a lot of news photos of Dexter filming at a large house somewhere in Dover, but I didn't know where it was.
Ron apparently asked the Dover police, who told him they had been filming on Pegan Lane, and he headed out to try to find it.
While he was on his way, I did some googling for the street name, and came up with a real estate listing with a bevy of photos of a grand house that looked a lot like the one we had seen in the press, with the address of 20 Pegan Lane. So I let Ron know the address, and he stopped there and shot the photos you see above.
Once I had confirmed it was the same house seen in the news articles about the filming, all I had to do was wait for the house to appear on the show.
But when it did, they didn't show the exterior, other than the front door, and the entire scene was shot inside the home.
Fortunately, there were all those real estate images of the interior, which made it relatively easy to match up a number of different parts of the house, such as the fireplace, the front doors, the stairway and the kitchen. But the best match was that semicircular room where they had the Christmas tree (and where Harrison got the pill from Scott) , which was lined with a wall of glass windows and doors (outlined on the show by Christmas lights).
You can find a good set of 30 photos of both the exterior and the interior of the home here.
