Dwayne The Rock Johnson's House: A Larger Than Life Figure Sells His House for a Small Sum

By on June 8, 2012 in ArticlesCelebrity Homes

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson went from wrestler to popular actor in record time.  Handsome, athletic, and smart, the California-born Mr. Johnson, played football in college and graduated with degrees in Criminology and Physiology.  His football career did not advance much past college, so he joined his family's very well established wrestling dynasty.  From the late 90s through the mid-2000s, he was incredibly popular on the WWF/WWE circuit, and brought many new fans to the sport.  His appearance as The Scorpion King, in both "The Mummy", and "The Scorpion King", further increased his fame, and he slowly began to remove himself from wrestling to focus on his acting career.  While he has returned to wrestling periodically, he has built a solid resume in action films and comedies, and has managed to achieve that rare crossover success about which pop stars and athletes dream.  He has also managed to amass a sizeable fortune, and, as most stars do, he used a portion of those funds to purchase a lavish home in California.  Recently, however, he sold it, and judging by the photos, if one thing can be said about "The Rock", it is that he likes to live large.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's house is 9,120 square feet.  The house contains six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, high ceilings, a barber room, a home theater, massive chandeliers, floor-to-ceiling windows, and marble floors.  There is an outdoor kitchen, infinity pool, waterfall wall, a lawn that seems to stretch on forever, a multi-car garage, huge columns supporting the roof of a large back porch, and a modern kitchen with all new appliances.  Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's house is truly tricked out.  It is also no longer his.  Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's house sold for $4.9 million to an undisclosed businessman.  That seems like a surprisingly small fee for the house of such a larger than life figure.
