Dennis Quaid and his ex-wife, Kimberly Buffington-Quaid, are finally letting go of their joint mini-mansion in Los Angeles’s Pacific Palisades nearly two years after they officially called it quits on their 14-year marriage.
The spacious, 6,114-square-foot home, which sits at the end of an impressive driveway just beyond a ten-car motor court, features six bedrooms and seven-and-a-half bathrooms, and was originally built back in the late 1920s. The Spanish-style home is currently on the market for $6. 495 million; Quaid and Buffington-Quaid originally purchased it together for $5. 1 million about five years ago.
The carefully restored home boasts a number of impressive architectural details, including leaded stained-glass windows and wrought-iron chandeliers inside the entryway, as well as a stone-tread staircase that leads up to the second floor. On the ground floor, the living room is one of the obvious highlights: In addition to two chandeliers, the room also features a high exposed-wood ceiling, a number of towering arched windows, and a beautiful stone fireplace.
The nearby dining room has room for ten, and is accented by a massive stained-glass window; the eat-in kitchen is its own design feat, with a sizable marble-topped island and antique stone floor tiles throughout. Also on the ground floor is a cozy den and a screening room equipped with a high-definition projector.
Upstairs, there are three en suite guest bedrooms, a second den that can be used as a children’s play room, and a circular office with an inlaid stone floor. The master suite is what really brings the entire floor together, with an entry vestibule that leads onto a spacious sleeping area, a generous sitting area, a lavishly fitted walk-in closet and dressing room, and a vintage-inspired bathroom decked out in marble, with a claw-footed deep soaking tub and a separate steam shower.
Under the main residence is a smaller, though cozy, room currently used as a yoga studio or fitness center (the mirror-lined walls suggest this might be the best use for the space), and the backyard provides ample room for lounging and taking in the views. In addition to a grassy lawn, the backyard also features a swimming pool and spa, and room enough for an intimate backyard dinner party. Quaid also sold his Austin, Texas, home earlier this year for about $3. 5 million and currently seems to have relocated to a home in a low-key Los Angeles neighborhood, which he picked up in late 2017 for $3. 9 million.
