Taking a loss of almost $2 million on a real estate transaction would be a letdown for anyone, but it probably hurts a bit less when you’re the highest-paid actor in the world for two years running—just ask Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. According to Dirt, a gigantic Georgia property linked to the actor, producer, and former pro wrestler recently hit the market for $7.5 million, well below the nearly $9.5 million he reportedly paid for it in October 2019.
The property includes a 14,791-square-foot mansion, plus a log cabin, detached farmhouse, 12-stall barn, riding arena, private lake, and saltwater swimming pool with accompanying cabana, all set on 46 acres of land near Atlanta. The French country manor–style main house comprises eight bedrooms, six bathrooms, and three powder rooms, as well as plenty of living, dining, and entertaining space that includes a walk-in wine cellar, a library, a gourmet kitchen, and a lounge.
Though it’s unclear whether The Rock ever actually lived in the massive space, the initial $9.495 million all-cash sale was conducted by an entity linked to his business managers, and multiple outlets reported at the time that Johnson was indeed behind the purchase.
Interestingly, despite owning a sprawling estate a reasonable drive to and from Atlanta, where he was shooting multiple movies last year, Johnson chose instead to rent another mansion in the area, perhaps in search of a shorter commute across the city. That rental house was the subject of a series of Instagram posts in September in which Johnson revealed that he had to rip the home’s front gates out of a brick wall after a power outage caused them to stop working.
