Dennis Quaid Selling Secluded Montana Ranch for $14M

Dennis Quaid is selling his beloved 418 acre Montana ranch for $14,000,000. The home was once owned by Hollywood legends Warren Oates and Sam Peckinpah, who co-owned the property and eventually sold it to Quaid.  Prior to becoming a getaway for Hollywood elite, this special place has been inhabited for thousands of years by Native Americans using it as an entrance to Yellowstone National Park.

Located in the Paradise Valley of Southwest Montana, this ranch has it all: prime fishing for approximately 2 miles on both sides of Six Mile Creek and two ponds, horseback riding on the ranch and in the National Forest adjoining the ranch. Incredible views abound from a private and beautiful owners’ residence. The property features a 3-bedroom, 4-bathroom main home, as well as 4 guest houses, a ranch manager’s home and horse facilities. It also featured a domed observatory, which Quaid built as homage to his childhood fascination with the stars. Quaid said, “I was into astronomy as a kid…now I sit and watch the stars.”

Historic gold mines are on the property, which borders the Gallatin National Forest, within one mile of the Absaroka Beartooth Wilderness Area. The Quaid’s residence is approximately 5300 square feet and was designed by Frank Cikan and published in Architectural Digest.
