A two-story traditional house recently leased by Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts for $15,000 monthly has landed on the market.
The asking price is $5 million.
Located in the sought-after Linda Vista neighborhood a stone’s throw away from the Rose Bowl, this 4,147-square-foot residence with a brick and clapboard facade is also known for its appearance in the Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler 2017 comedy “The House.” It has five bedrooms and five bathrooms and sits on a quarter-acre-plus lot that backs onto a lawn and pool with a spa. String lights hung by the production for “The House” shoot remain in the backyard.
The house originally dates to 1932. But the architect owner updated and expanded it to accommodate his family after taking ownership in August 2000 for $650,000. “They put so much love into it, and you feel that when you walk in,” said Neha Jespersen of Deasy Penner Podley, the listing agent.

Double ovens and sub-zero refrigerating systems outfit the kitchen at the back of the house.
