Since I am constantly dragging my boyfriend on my stalking adventures every single weekend, I decided to finally stalk a place he would enjoy – the house on stilts from Lethal Weapon 2. This is the same house that Mel Gibson attaches to his pick-up truck via cables, drives away, and pulls right down the hill. In real life, the producers built a replica house on a studio lot for Mel to pull down and the real house is still standing on Mulholland Drive in Beverly Hills.
The Lethal Weapon 2 house was designed by John Lautner – the famous architect who also designed Courtney Cox’s former Malibu home – and it definitely showcases the unique, space-age style familiar to Lautner homes. The house is actually known as the Garcia House and was built in 1962. I would definitely recommend stalking the house on an LA visit!
Until next time, Happy Stalking! 🙂
Stalk It: The Garcia House is located at 7436 Mulholland Drive in Beverly Hills. If would like to spend the night in a John Lautner home, the Elrod/Lautner home in Palm Springs – which was immortalized in the James Bond movie Diamonds are Forever – is available for rentals. You can learn more about it here.
