The Rock has hit rural Georgia.
An entity associated with actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has seized 46 acres of historic property on the outskirts of Atlanta.
A Georgia-based company affiliated with Johnson’s Los Angeles business executives bought the equestrian center in the small, rural town of Powder Springs for about $ 9.5 million, according to public property data. Johnson, 47, a former professional wrestler who has since built a career as an actor and producer, couldn’t be reached for comment.
At the center of the sprawling multi-lot property is a 14,000-square-foot mega home with eight bedrooms, plenty of space for Mr. Johnson’s family of five.
Built-in 2002, the main house features stone fireplaces, a custom wine cellar, and a backyard with a cabana and free-form saltwater pool, according to a listing with Harry Norman Real Estate broker Jeff DeJarnett. DeJarnett declined to comment on the sale.
The elegant house is inspired by the French countryside, including partial brick and stone cladding on the exterior, large casement windows, and a rustic interior with exposed wood and stone, as photos show. Amenities include a cozy library with wood paneling and stained glass.
The Johnsons will also have a fully equipped horse farm with a barn with 12 stables and an equestrian center with a gazebo. One of its oldest charms is an original 150-year-old farmhouse, which now serves as a caretaker’s cabin, the listing said.
The sale comes a few months after the “Fast and the Furious” star in Hawaii married longtime girlfriend Lauren Hashian.
The deal also comes on the heels of an announcement in September that Johnson and Dany Garcia, his business partner and ex-wife, plan to host an inaugural fitness conference in Atlanta in October 2020 called Atheticone.
