Actor Dennis Quaid and his real estate agent wife, Kimberly Buffington, have put their Pacific Palisades equestrian estate on the market for $16.9 million -- a move that has some speculating that the couple will make their primary home in Texas where the Big Easy star was born and where his wife still has a stake in her father's homebuilding business. The couple presumably have even already purchased a six-bedroom home in Austin. (See gallery photos of both the Texas home, and the California estate.)

Kathrin Nicholson of Westside Estate Agency, who has the listing of the gated French country-style home that is two minutes from Sunset Boulevard, tells AOL Real Estate that one of her favorite features of the home is "a great set of huge vintage wood doors that Dennis and Kimberly put in to enter the master suite. They add a wonderful ambiance and set the scene for entering the room."
