No More Home on the Range: Dennis Quaid Cutting Loose His Montana Ranch
Dennis Quaid wants to be footloose and fancy free of his spread near Yellowstone National Park, ranch for $14 million.
The ranch borders Gallatin National Forest and is a mile from Absaroka Beartooth Wilderness Area and close to Chico Hot Springs.
It looks like Quaid stuck a Montana property on the market previously for $1.4 million. He owns additional land east of this listed property. Our guess is that the two properties are most likely lumped together in this listing.
From “Great Balls of Fire!” to “The Big Easy” and “The Parent Trap,” Quaid has had his share of big-screen hits. His latest role is as Reverend Shaw Moore in the newly released remake of “Footloose.” But Hollywood is not where Quaid wants to hang out, either.
He’s also looking to sell his home in the Pacific Palisades real estate market, which is currently listed for $10 million. The L.A. estate has had its price slashed from its original list price of $16.9 million. California and Montana are off the map for Quaid, who’s currently living in Texas but has decided to look even further west — to Hawaii — to enjoy “the new love of my life, which is surfing.”
That’s fitting, since Quaid starred in the 2011 release “Soul Surfer,” a movie about a teenage surfer who summons the courage to get back on the board after losing her arm in a shark attack.
Quaid’s ranch has plenty of room and not just acreage. In addition to the 3-bedroom, 4-bath owner’s residence, the property has 4 guest houses, a ranch manager’s home and horse facilities.
If you’re looking to strike it rich, there are also historic gold mines are on the property, however they’ve been abandoned for quite some time.
According to data on Zillow Mortgage Marketplace, with a 20 percent down payment and 30-year-mortgage, the monthly payment for Quaid’s Montana ranch would be $7,003.
