Dwayne Johnson, also known at The Rock, is the buyer of this Mediterranean-style estate in the Beverly Hills Post Office area of Los Angeles. The action film star paid $27.75 million for the estate, which was designed by Grant Kilpatrick and completed in 1993. According to Dirt, the sale took place off market.
The 3.67-acre estate recalls some of the stately properties in the white-hot market of Montecito. It is located in Beverly Park, in an esteemed neck of the SoCal woods that is neighborly with the sister parks of Fryman Canyon, Wilacre, and Coldwater Canyon. The house sits at the end of a lush, winding drive bordered by closely groomed hedges and mature olive trees.
The seven-bed, twelve-bath house packs a lot of flash into its design, but then it has over 15,000 sq. ft. of living space to do it in. The main entrance—dramatically recessed and atmospheric—is given a fair dose of limestone, and a trio of circular flourishes. Amenities include an indoor pool room with torch sconces and French doors opening onto the property, a home cinema with tiered seating, an elevator, and a recording studio.
The grounds are perhaps more exceptional still than the house. Gardens, lawns, hedges, and retaining walls are featured in the landscaping. Scattered throughout the property are a tennis court, a baseball diamond, an outdoor pool, a gym, an arcade with a groin-vaulted ceiling and lantern pendant fixtures, and a 2,500 sq. ft. guest house.
According to Forbes, Johnson was the highest-paid male actor last year, pulling down an estimated $87.5 million. Over the course of his career, his films have grossed over $10 billion worldwide.
Johnson’s upcoming projects include Jungle Cruise, with Emily Blunt and Paul Giamatti; Red Notice, with Gal Gadot and Ryan Reynolds; and Black Adam, with Pierce Brosnan.
