'Footloose' Co-Star Dennis Quaid Puts Montana Ranch on Market for $14 Million
The actor says he wants to buy a home in Hawaii, where he can focus on "the new love of my life, which is surfing."
Dennis Quaid, who is currently on the big screen in the Footloose remake, has put his 418-acre Montana ranch up for sale with an asking price of $14 million, the Wall Street Journal reported.
The 5,315-square-foot, three-bedroom home, which Quaid built in 2000, features wide-plank hardwood floors that were salvaged from the Great Chicago Fire of 1871.
The property, located in Emigrant, about 13 miles from Yellowstone National Park, also includes horse facilities, an arena, an observatory and two miles of a fishing creek. Additionally, it features a whopping four guest houses.
"The backyard is basically Yellowstone Park," Quaid told the Journal.
Quaid bought the property 25 years ago from director Sam Peckinpah and actor Warren Oates, friends who owned the property together.
Quaid, who also has a home in Austin, Texas, said he's decided to sell now because he wants to buy a home in Hawaii, where he can focus on "the new love of my life, which is surfing."
In the Footloose remake, which opened Friday, Quaid plays an uptight preacher who bans dancing in his small town. The movie barely missed the No. 1 spot at the box office, earning $16.1 million, just behind Real Steel's $16.3 million.
