Andie MacDowell Lists North Carolina Estate for $4.5 Million

- — Many recognize her as the demurely radiant face of L'Oréal, uttering the mantra about being "worth it." Others remember her for appearing in box office hits like "Groundhog Day" and "Four Weddings and a Funeral."

After the release of the remake "Footloose," actress and model Andie MacDowell's most recent incarnation is as the character Vi Moore, the preacher's wife in the town where dancing is illegal.

Born Rosalie Anderson "Andie" MacDowell, the 53-year-old South Carolina native has stayed close to her roots, living in North Carolina for the past few years in a gorgeous 1.89-acre property in Biltmore Forest. But now it looks like MacDowell is ready to trade her piece of prestigious Biltmore Forest real estate, listing her 4-story, 9,800-sq ft home for $4.5 million.

Described as a "storybook Tudor with Art Nouveau and arts and crafts influences," MacDowell's home features 6 bedrooms, 7.5 bathrooms, and expansive terraces. The listing also mentions the park-like property, which overlooks the seventh fairway of the community's country club, was featured in Carolina Home & Garden in the summer of 2008.

MacDowell isn't the only "Footloose" cast member making real estate moves. Dennis Quaid, who plays opposite MacDowell as Reverend Shaw Moore in the film, has listed his 20-acre ranch in Montana for $1,495,000, a property that he has owned since 1982. Quaid is also looking to unload his equestrian estate that is listed on the Pacific Palisades real estate market for $10 million - a heavily reduced asking price from the $16.9 million Quaid originally listed the L.A. estate for in March 2011.

This listing is held by Jo Chandler of Preferred Properties of Asheville, Inc. According to data on Zillow Mortgage Marketplace, with a 20 percent down payment and 30-year-mortgage, the monthly payment for MacDowell's home would be $19,362.
