The equestrian estate includes an eight-bedroom home and a 150-year-old caretaker’s cottage.
An entity linked to star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has purchased a historic 46-acre mansion south of Atlanta.
According to public property records, a Georgia-based corporation tied to Mr. Johnson’s Los Angeles business managers paid approximately $9.5 million for the equestrian mansion in the idyllic tiny town of Powder Springs. Mr. Johnson, a 47-year-old former professional wrestler who has since established a career as an actor and producer, was unavailable for comment.
The huge, multi-parcel property is centered around a 14,000-square-foot megamansion with eight bedrooms, more than enough space for Mr. Johnson’s family of five.
According to the ad with agent Jeff DeJarnett of Harry Norman Realtors, the main house was completed in 2002 and includes stone fireplaces, a custom wine cellar, and a patio with a freeform salt-water pool and cabana. Mr. DeJarnett declined to comment on the deal.
The exquisite home is inspired by French country style, with partial brick and stone cladding on the exterior, huge casement windows, and rustic interiors with exposed wood and stone throughout, as shown in the photographs. There is also a lovely, wood-paneled library with stained glass.
The Johnsons also receive a fully equipped horse farm with a 12-stall barn and a riding facility with a viewing deck. According to the listing, one of its oldest charms is an original 150-year-old farm home that is currently used as a caretaker’s cottage.
The transaction comes only months after the “Fast and Furious” star married his longtime fiancée, Lauren Hashian, in Hawaii.
The agreement also follows an announcement in September that Mr. Johnson and his business partner and ex-wife, Dany Garcia, intend to hold the first Atheticon fitness conference in Atlanta in October 2020.
