Dennis Quaid's French Country Home

Dennis Quaid's French Country Home

Enjoy your morning coffee while virtually touring our celebrity home of the day. Today: Dennis Quaid's house.

For sale: Dennis Quaid's Pacific Palisades, CA home. If you're interested in this 8-bedroom, 9-bathroom abode -- and trust us, you will be once you see these photos -- it's on the market for $16.9 million. The award-winning, "Far From Heaven" star seems like he has quite a paradise.

Built in 2004, the French country home is cozy and welcoming, with a vine-covered exterior and ample entertaining space inside. Our friends at let us slip in to this Texan's California country house.

Hmm, wonder where they hide the key? This gorgeous, over-the-top gate is just the beginning. Wait until you see what's inside!

The picturesque sunset and illuminated windows makes Quaid's house look like a Thomas Kincaidpainting. Who would mind coming home to this every night?

A decorative rug and understated furniture provide make for a welcoming entrance. And note the scale of the framed photo and gigantic mirror -- a daring move that definitely paid off.

The red and orange tones of the living room create a warm atmosphere, made even better by the flow of natural light from the window-ed French doors. Meanwhile, a bold rug breaks up all the solid colors.

No squeezing in this kitchen. The table comfortably seats eight and the large island offers plenty of room for additional guests. The rustic tones speak to the French country style and make us want to sneak in for a snack (or dinner, if anyone is offering).

This formal dining space also seats several, but gives a cooler, more elegant feel. We love the pale blue walls and rounded white chairs. At a loss for words at a dinner party here? Exotic artwork -- a travel souvenir, perhaps? -- serves as a conversation piece.

This TV room doubles as a bar area. Nice, right? Along with the three stools in the back, this is just the spot for drinks and a movie. (Maybe Vantage Point or Jaws 3?)

Quaid's neutral bedding is calming, while a decorative pillow adds a bit of eccentricity. And yes, we appreciate the antique desk with the contemporary sofa and chair but we really just can't get over those floor-to-ceiling windows!
One last look. We wish we could stroll along the graphic layout of these stunning cobblestones... and through this 1.96 acre property!
