DEXTER Filming Locations - hundreds of actual places where the TV show Dexter was filmed.

The location: Sussman's Mother's House

Q. What is it supposed to be on the show?

    A. A residential house.

Q. Where is it supposed to be on the show?

    A. Somewhere in Miami.

Q. When did we see it on the show?

    A. In Episode 2, of Season 8, "Every Silver Lining".

    Miami Metro is trying to find Lyle Sussman, who has become the main suspect in the Brain Surgeon killings - after his fingerprint was found on a victim.

    They have already visited Sussman's own house, and found that he wasn't there.

    So, In this scene, in an attempt to locate him, Angel & Quinn go to Sussman's mother's house, to see if she can tell them where he is.

    The speak with his mother, and she tells them that she hasn't seen him in days.

    But she assures them that's not unusual, because Sussman is an avid hunter, and spends a lot of time up at his cabin.
      But she doesn't know the address.

    She says he "always brings back something for the quilt", and brings out a large furry blanket made from dozens of animal pelts. (Quinn is freaked out by it, and Angel calls it "a nightmare in fur.")

Q. What is it actually in real life?

    A. A residential home - just not in Miami.

    Q. Where can I find it in real life?

    I shot the photo below in 2013:

    [ Warning: This is private home.  Do not trespass on their property,

    knock on their door, or do anything that might disturb the residents. ]

Here is an aerial photo of the location.  Here is a Google StreetView.
  And here is a map link.

Q. How the heck did you figure out where it was?

    A.  In the early seasons, I usually had to hunt down the locations after viewing the episodes, using clues from the various scenes.  By the now, though, I've developed a small group of fans, spies & tipsters who kept an eye out for Dexter filming in their neighborhoods, and let me know in advance when something is about to film there.

    Between those reports, my own personal reconnaissance around town, and a few new resources I discovered, by the time the new first episode airs, I already know most (but not all) of the filming locations, and only need to watch the episodes and match up the scenes with the correct locations.

    This group of helpful fans includes Rick, Ellen, Suzi, Elaine, Mia, Julie, Kerry, Joel, Eric, Jeff, & others. My thanks to all of them.

    I got this tip from Rick.  And the large 172 outside confirmed it.  (Thanks, Rick!)
