Everyone remembers “The Bodyguard” as the Whitney Houston movie where she sang a cover version of that Dolly Parton song. It’s also the ’90s movie in which Kevin Costner danced with Houston instead of a pack of wolves. Thanks to all of this deliciousness, (and the power of its soundtrack and heartbreaking finale), the film went on to become the second highest-grossing film worldwide in 1992, earning $411 million at the box office.
The rustic home on Lake Tahoe’s Fallen Leaf Lake (where Houston’s character, Rachel Marron, was hiding out from her stalker) is now for sale. Known as the Tallac House, it oozes ambiance and warmth from its 76-foot dock where Costner dove into the icy winter water to save Rachel’s son from an exploding boat. The home is all wood—no sheetrock used—and was also seen in the film (Nic Cage alert!) “City of Angels.”
With 197 feet of Fallen Leaf Lake frontage on 2.74 secluded acres, the house has over 3,000 square feet with five bedrooms, including three bunk rooms, three baths, balconies, a huge deck and views of the lake and Tallac Mountain from every room. Built in 1970 in collaboration with noted local architect Paul Hamilton, the property has stayed in the family since its inception, making this the first time it has been offered for sale. A perfect vacation retreat or full-time home that’s ideal for entertaining, the home has vaulted ceilings accented by a massive rock fireplace, a three-car garage and the famed pier perfect for all types of water sports.
