Actor Dennis Quaid finally sold his Pacific Palisades, California estate for $9.5-million. The Hollywood star sold the home because he’s been spending more time in Texas, where his family resides full time in between making movies.
Back in 1999 when Quaid purchased the property for $1.8-million it comprised a three bedroom, three bathroom home. The native Texan then set about converting it into a luxury equestrian estate.
Constructed in 2004, the French country style estate sits on two acres with an accompanying second house and studio, a barn for horses and a corral with a year round creek and access to 40 miles of riding trails. The 8,400 square foor home features a beam ceiling living room, family room, wine cellar, home office and fitness center.
The estate also boasts a private horse barn and hiking path that attaches to Will Rogers Park. A huge swimming pool, spa and putting green are part of the estate, which was originally listed for $16.9-million before it was reduced to an asking price of $10-million. The property was reportedly on and off the market for more than three years.
Quaid, 57, is starring in the thriller Beneath the Darkness, which is being released this week, and the upcoming comedy What to Expect When You’re Expecting due out in May. He recently starred as the Reverend Shaw Moore in the remake of Footloose.
