Hollywood screenwriter and filmmaker Dean DeBlois, who co-directed the Disney animated film “Lilo & Stitch,” has bought a home in La Cañada Flintridge for $2.8 million.

The Victorian manor, built in 2000, offers an updated spin on the revival style popularized in the U.S. during the late 1800s and early 1900s. Period details include lacy gingerbread millwork, stained glass windows and custom hardware. Smart home features provide automated control of the home’s audio, video, lighting and climate systems.

Formal living and dining rooms, a modern country-style kitchen, a library and three hand-carved fireplaces are within more than 4,900 square feet of living space. The master suite has vaulted ceilings and a soaking tub for a total of four bedrooms and five bathrooms.


Outdoors, a covered porch wraps around the home’s exterior. A swimming pool, an outdoor kitchen and a four-car garage fill out the nearly half-acre setting.

Mike Kobeissi of Kobeissi Properties was the listing agent. Rima Sirrieh, also with Kobeissi Properties, represented the buyer.

DeBlois, 46, shared Academy Award nominations for the films “How to Train Your Dragon” (2010) and “How to Train Your Dragon 2” (2014). His other credits include the animated show “Lilo & Stitch: The Series” and “Stitch!”
