Divorces are hard enough to deal with even when they are not subject to public scrutiny. For celebrities, the added judgment and rumor mill can make this painful process even more stressful.

For more than a year, Dennis Quaid and Kimberly Buffington-Quaid have been going through a lengthy divorce process, marked with second thoughts and difficult realizations. Nevertheless, the actor showed his support for his wife and 5-year-old twins by purchasing a $3.1 million Pacific Palisades home for them in February. Both Quaids are listed as owners in property records.

TMZ reported in March that under the terms of the divorce settlement, “Kimberly and the 5-year-old kids are allowed exclusive occupancy of the house until the children turn 18. The settlement conditionally allows Kimberly to stay even longer.” By the looks of it, Kimberly and the kiddos will be continuing their exclusive occupancy elsewhere: The home at 1239 Las Pulgas Rd, Pacific Palisades, CA 90272 has just been listed for $3.15 million.

Built in 1959 and beautifully renovated, the 4-bedroom, 4.5-bath contemporary home has an open floor plan that allows for casual yet posh SoCal living. Measuring 3,421 square feet and sitting on a quarter-acre lot, the home has more than enough space for playdates, dinner parties and relaxation. The backyard features a saltwater pool/spa and patch of grass that looks perfect for yoga.

Amenities of the home include a large, gourmet kitchen with plentiful seating, high-end AV electronics, hardwood floors and stunning ocean views. It’s a shame Dennis Quaid did not get to enjoy the master suite panorama — or did he? A report by the Daily Mail in June shows the couple at a family outing wearing their wedding rings.

Whatever the case, Quaid has continued a trend of unloading his properties. He sold his Pacific Palisades equestrian estate in 2011, and his Montana ranch was listed in 2011 but failed to sell. The home was relisted in April 2013 and again in July, with the listing description now noting that a sale is pending. He continues to own a home in Austin, TX.

The Pacific Palisades listing is held by Dan Urbach of Prudential California Realty.
