Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig’s Bucolic Lakefront Craftsman from ‘A Deadly Adoption’ Is Up for Lease

By Lindsay Blake

It is not very often that a lakeside residence hits the market in the Los Angeles area, but a gorgeous Pasadena Craftsman with just such a setting has come up for lease! And it’s a filming location to boot, with a resume teeming with the names of several big-name stars, including Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig who called the place home in the 2015 Lifetime movie “A Deadly Adoption.”

Offered at $16,320 a month, the 5,100-square-foot property sits on the northern edge of Johnston Lake at 1260 La Loma Road in Crown City’s San Rafael neighborhood.

A true hidden gem, most Los Angeles and Pasadena denizens have likely never heard of Johnston Lake. Named in honor of Alexander Campbell-Johnston, who purchased the three-acre basin as well as the 2,300 acres surrounding it in 1883, the lake sits tucked away from prying eyes behind oleander hedges and tall oak and sycamore trees. Off-limits to the public, it is currently managed by the Brookmere Association, a private group of 18 homeowners who live along the waterfront.
