“What would you give me for a basket of hugs?” Rob Lowe asks as the doting single-dad in Lifetime’s The Bad Seed movie. His daughter Emma smiles. “A basket of kisses!”
When he leaves the room, she turns to the mirror and practices the line some more. “A basket of kisses! A basket of kisses!” I probably would’ve gotten a chill during that scene if I hadn’t been distracted by the pretty house it was filmed in.
They shot The Bad Seed remake on location in this beautiful shingle-style house in Langley, British Columbia (Canada). It was on the market recently, so let’s take a look inside!
The House from “The Bad Seed”
Rob Lowe directed the remake. I found it fairly entertaining, and the house held my attention, but it didn’t get great reviews. Indie Wire called it “A Basket of Misses.”
Here’s how the front of the house looked in the listing:
In the movie, David (Lowe) says this is an old house he and his wife bought and updated.
The real house is a fairly new one, built in 2016 by blogger Monika Hibbs.
No wonder it’s so fabulous. You can see photos of it on her Instagram page, too.
For the movie, they constructed a wall with bookshelves that divided the kitchen from the family room:
There are only two chairs at the kitchen table, for father and daughter:
I just kept taking screenshots of the kitchen because I liked it so much.

The Family Room looked smaller onscreen because we couldn’t see the rest of it:
In the listing we can see the ceilings are vaulted:
Mckenna Grace, who played Emma, also stars in The Haunting of Hill House.

There are four bedrooms in the listing, including this pretty nursery:
