Dennis Quaid Sells Mansion for $5.9M After Divorce — and It Looks Like His Parent Trap House
Dennis Quaid's Mansion Is Off the Market!
The Spanish-style home gives off serious Parent Trap vibes with a clay-tile roof, vine-covered stucco walls, and an impressive backyard pool that are reminiscent of Quaid's character's wine country estate.
A Post-Divorce Sale
The former couple, who finalized their divorce in April after Buffington-Quaid filed in 2016, agreed to split the sale price of their family home as part of their settlement. The agreement also outlined that Buffington-Quaid would receive a $2 million lump sum payment, another million for property settlements and $13,750 a month in child support, which could increase if Quaid's income surpasses $1.3 million in one year.
Old Hollywood Charm
The 6,114-square-foot home, which was built in 1929, sits on a 16,030-square-foot lot and features charming accents like stained-glass windows and a circular foyer with an elegant staircase.
A Farmhouse-Style Kitchen
Although there's sadly no wine cellar, like the one where Quaid's Nick Parker and Elizabeth James (Natasha Richardson) rekindled their romance, the spacious kitchen gives off classic farmhouse vibes. The eat-in room also features a with a chef's island, two refrigerators and white tile backsplash.
A Luxury Space
The master suite is an area fit for the movie's villanous Meredith Blake (a.k.a. "Cruella"), and it's spacious enough for a sitting room and a walk-in-closet underneath vaulted ceilings. It's attached to a vintage-style bathroom that includes a steam shower and soaking tub.
The Home Theater
Alongside guest and staff quarters (where we assume Chessy and Marvin would spend most of their time), the home also boasts an intimate screening room, complete with an HD projector and a theater-like curtain for family movie nights.
Biltmore-Inspired Living Room
The stone fireplace, wood ceilings, and massive arched windows in this spacious entertaining space are meant to be reminiscient of L.A.'s Biltmore Hotel and lend the property a sense of grandeur.
A Backyard Oasis
Quaid appears to have valued the privacy the estate offers, as the home (including the 10-car motor court) are all hidden by high hedge-lined fences and a bamboo entryway with a modern security system. The star-worthy backyard features a heated pool, spa, and fruit trees.
