Dennis Quaid's Rustic Retreat
Houston-born actor Dennis Quaid found a bit of his home state in this L.A. residence. Located in the Pacific Palisades neighborhood, the property features a barn, a corral, a creek and a private horseback-riding trail -- all just two minutes from swanky Sunset Boulevard. The actor purchased the French country-style home for $1.83 million in 1999, but is now selling it so he can move back to Texas to be closer to his family. The estate is listed for $16.9 million. After nine months on the market, Dennis Quaid's equestrian estate sold in December 2011 for $9.5 million -- more than $7 million less than its original asking price.
