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 house has a ruby colored roof and (green in the first 5 seasons and ruby colored in seasons 6-8) shutters. The main siding of the building is painted white. The house consists of two stories, with the upper story containing The Chipmunks' bedroom, 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 they became a family of four. 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. Outside they have a swimming pool in the backyard.

- 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.
