Dennis Quaid's $14 million Montana ranch for sale - See photos

10/15/2011 by Olivia Allin

Dennis Quaid, who currently appears in "Footloose," has put his $14 million Montana ranch on the market.

The 420-acre property is located in Paradise Valley and as Quaid told the Wall Street Journal, "The backyard is basically Yellowstone Park."

The actor bought the land 25-years ago from "Straw Dogs" director Sam Peckinpah and actor Warren Oates.

The 5315 square foot home, which Quaid built in 2000 with architect Frank Cikan, has 3 bedrooms, 3 1/2 bathrooms and stunning views of Six Mile Creek and the Absaroka Mountain Range (See photos of the property).

The main house features wide-plank hardwood floors salvaged from the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. There are also four guest houses, a ranch manager's home, horse facilities, an observatory and two miles of "fishing creek."

Quaid told the Wall Street Journal that he decided to sell the property in order to buy a home in Hawaii so he can go surfing, which he called "the new love of my life."

The 57-year-old actor has appeared in films like "Jaws 3," "The Parent Trap," "Traffic," "In Good Company," "The Day After Tomorrow," "Frequency," "Smart People" and "Soul Surfer."

Quaid currently portrays "Dancing With The Stars" professional Julianne Hough's overbearing father in the film "Footloose," which hit theaters on October 14.

In the remake of the 1984 classic, a kid named Ren McCormack, portrayed by Kenny Wormald, leads a group of teenagers in a small town in the South to rebel against local rules against dancing and rock 'n' roll. Julianne Hough plays his headstrong love interest, Ariel Moore, whose father (Dennis Quaid) is a minister who leads the anti-dance movement.
