Interested in the Lake Tahoe House Where "The Bodyguard" Was Filmed?

​2 View Media LLC

Looking to own a piece of Tahoe waterfront—and Hollywood history? We've got just the mountain house for you.

Dust off your VHS copy of the 1992 movie "The Bodyguard" and fast-forward to the scene in which Kevin Costner dives off a snowy pier to save a young boy from that about-to-explode boat. That pier belongs to Tallac House, a rustic lodge-style retreat on the shore of Fallen Leaf Lake, just a mile or so from Lake Tahoe.

Designed in 1969 by architect Paul Hamilton, the 3,000-square-foot house was inspired by the work of Frank Lloyd Wright and features custom wood finishes (think wood floors, walls, beams and ceilings, all in the same room)...

 built-in furnishings...

carved double entry doors...

a floor-to-ceiling granite fireplace...

and views of Fallen Leaf Lake from every window.

Here's the wood-clad kitchen as it appeared in "The Bodyguard"...

And here's the kitchen today (we love those built-in shelves!)...

Outside, the nearly three-acre property includes 197 feet of lake frontage, views of Mount Tallac, and, of course, that famous pier.

The 5-bedroom, 3-bath home is currently listed by Doug Rosner of Chase Intl. South Tahoe Realty for $7.995 million.

See if you can spot Tallac House in "The Bodyguard" movie trailer here.
