And you thought Nick Parker’s Napa vineyard estate in The Parent Trap was nice. The Old Hollywood home of Dennis Quaid (aka the on-screen Parker) gives that fictional piece of real estate porn a run for its money. The breathtaking six-bedroom, nine-bathroom home on Sunset Boulevard is listed for sale at nearly $6.5 million dollars, with Chris Hicks of the Agency.
The sprawling home sits on more than 16,000 square feet of land in the Palisades Riviera in Los Angeles. Some other features of the home include a 10-car motor court, heated pool, stone fireplace, and a gourmet kitchen, all serving to make the Spanish-style home an irresistible buy — if you happen to be in the multi-million-dollar real estate market in the Los Angeles area.
The home is on the market because, sadly, Dennis Quaid and his wife Kimberly Quaid are divorcing. The couple purchased the home in 2013 after living there as tenants for a year. Dennis reportedly still loves the area and looks fondly on his time there.
Dennis Quaid stole hearts as sweet, sexy California vintner Nick Parker in the 1998 remake of The Parent Trap.
These days, Dennis Quaid still acts. He also performs with his band Dennis Quaid and the Sharks.
Despite being located on Sunset Boulevard, the house has an unexpectedly quiet atmosphere. He told Mansion Global, “I never thought of living on Sunset Boulevard before, but it turned out I had more privacy being on Sunset than anywhere else. You get inside the property and really don’t hear the cars.”
The home provides a private oasis despite being on Los Angeles’ Sunset Boulevard.
The gorgeous landscaping surrounding the home is marked by lush plants and mature fruit trees.
The large, heated pool and spa in the backyard make the home feel like a relaxing getaway.
The Spanish-style architecture adds to that effect.
It’s also an exquisite place for kicking back with an intimate group of friends without feeling too “Hollywood.”
The living room boasts wooden beamed ceilings and is inspired by the Biltmore Hotel.
The dining room is accented by a beautiful stained glass window and can comfortably seat up to 10 guests.
The kitchen and eating area boast some extra-homey, country vibes. The gourmet kitchen features two Viking refrigerators, a wine fridge, a Wolf range, and additional amenities that likely make even pizza for dinner an experience to remember.
In typical Old Hollywood fashion, the home has a screening room. Netflix and Chill never looked so cozy and chic!
The master bedroom features dual closets and dual bathrooms, excellent for the couple who are always negotiating space.
Imagine doing yoga in a home fitness studio with that beautiful California sunlight streaming in! (We are. We are imagining it very hard.)
So if you live in the LA area and have a few million bucks lying around, this might be the home for you! Otherwise, join us in drooling over some truly aspirational real estate.
