Heading back to Texas

Actor Dennis Quaid has put his equestrian estate in Pacific Palisades on the market at $16.9 million.

A French country-style main house, a guesthouse, a studio, a barn and a corral sit on 2 lush acres with a year-round creek. There are eight bedrooms, nine bathrooms and 8,400 square feet of living space. Maids quarters above the kitchen have been converted to a gym. A covered loggia with a fireplace overlooks the swimming pool and spa.

Quaid, 56, starred in "Vantage Point" (2008), "Pandorum" (2009) and the TV movie "The Special Relationship" (2010). He is selling because he is moving back to Texas to be closer to family.

Kathrin Nicholson of Westside Estate Agency is the listing agent.
