Houston-born actor, Dennis Quaid, has made a name for himself on the big screens of Hollywood, and is now looking to head back to his Lone Star State roots. According to the Los Angeles Times, Quaid is bidding adieu to his long-time residence in Pacific Palisades, CA to move back to Texas and be closer to his family.
Quaid bought his Pacific Palisades home in 1999 for a reported $1,830,000. Under the ownership of the 56-year-old actor, the 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom home was transformed into a luxurious equestrian estate consisting of a French country-style main house, a guest house, studio, barn, and corral site. Quaid’s equestrian estate is now on the market, asking $16.9 million. A few strokes on the calculator revealed his eight-digit asking price is 823.5% higher than his purchase price back in ’99. Talk about flipping for a profit!
The 8,400-sq ft main house features a luxurious master suite with his-and-her baths, fireplace, and a private balcony, 7 additional bedrooms, a total of 9.5 bathrooms, gourmet kitchen, formal dining room, office, wine cellar, swimming pool, and spa. The barn has a corral and private horse/hiking trail just steps from the second house, plus direct access to horse trails at Will Rogers State Park. A studio is also included on the property. To top off this unique piece of Pacific Palisades real estate, the 2-acre lot is surrounded by mature trees and a year-round creek making it a tranquil retreat just two minutes from Sunset Boulevard. Quaid owns additional properties in Brentwood, CA, Austin, TX, and two properties in Montana.
