At 1000 Roxbury Drive is the former home of LUCILLE BALL, star of "I Love Lucy." It's a beautiful, gray & white, modern colonial home, with large, rounded hedges out front. Lucy used to personally hand out candy to trick-or-treaters on Halloween.

Lucille's first home in LA is located at 1344 N Ogden in Hollywood. She resided there with her parents when the Balls headed west..

Actually, Lucy's house was completely rebuilt, doesn't look a thing like it did when she lived there. You can find photos of the various stages of how her house looked by going here:

Sorry about the repetition of the previous posting. I am new to this site and somehow I double-posted.

You may use the link contained within the previous posting, but upon further investigation I have discovered direct links you may use to see how Lucy's home appeared at various stages, both when she lived there and since her death

First, how Lucy's home looked when she lived there:

Here's Lucy's home after it was demolished:

Here's Lucy's home in a stage of rebuilding:

Here's how Lucy's former home looks today:

Lastly, here's a fun page of Lucy and Vivian Vance visiting Lucy's real home and neighborhood in an episode of "I Love Lucy," plus some shots of how the home appeared later:

Notice how when Lucy lived on North Roxbury Drive, her home appeared more like a typical, suburban American house.

But after Lucy's death, the house was rebuilt to more resemble the home of a Hollywood film star of an earlier era; not unlike "Pickfair" or the fictitious home of "Norma Desmond" in the film "Sunset Boulevard."

Of course, North Roxbury Drive was once known as the "Street Of Stars," for at one time or another on this famed strip were the homes of not only Lucille Ball, but Jack Benny, Rosemary Clooney, George & Ira Gershwin, Elizabeth Montgomery and her "Bewitched" co-star, Agnes Moorehead, Jimmy Stewart and his wife Gloria, and Spencer Tracy, among others.

Can you imagine trick-or-treating in that neighborhood on Halloween? Well, if you did, Lucy was known for handing out candy to surprised kids herself. Wow!
