Matt Winkelmeyer/FilmMagic Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson wants to rock a sale of his horse property in Powder Springs, GA.
The Georgia spread landed on the market for $7.5 million.Â The A-lister faces a heavy lift with a potential sale and is prepped to take a loss. He bought the place in 2019 for over $9 million.
A sprawling 46-acre property, the parcel is dotted with multiple buildings and offers a rustic, upscale retreat.
Built in 2003, the 15,000-square-foot main house includes eight bedrooms and nine bathrooms, and features wide-plank, old-growth walnut flooring, stone fireplaces, high ceilings, and natural light.
The master suite sits on the main level and opens to a flat, walkout private backyard. The kitchen includes a breakfast bar, island, and stone counters, and looks out to the family room.
In addition, the floor plan includes a den, library, living room, office, gym, wine cellar, and a guest apartment.
On the grounds, there’s a pool, pool pavilion, two apartments, five-car garage, and grassy lawn.
The property also boasts a working 12-stall barn, a riding arena with viewing deck, a haybarn, and a 1867 farmhouse with a historic log cabin.
It’s located close to the popular Buckhead neighborhood and about 45 minutes from the Atlanta airport.
Itâs not clear whether the âFast and Furiousâ actor spent any time in this property at all over the short period of his ownership.
While he owned the place, he was renting a different home close to Atlanta, while he was shooting multiple movies there last year.

The star posted a mea culpa showing that he had ripped out his front gate with his pickup, in a power outage that left him unable to open it as he was on his way to work.
“Maybe next time, I’ll just hop the gates and call an Uber,” he posted, before joking, “Actually, no, I won’t. There’s no fun in that.”

Given that Forbes has named him the highest-paid actor in the world, weâre guessing that he was able to cover the cost of the repair.
Now, heâll also have to eat another couple of million dollars after deciding to let go of the equestrian estate for way less than he purchased it.
Johnson, known as âThe Rockâ from his wrestling days, starred in the âFast and Furiousâ movies and the âJumanjiâ franchise. The global star has two upcoming movies: âBlack Adamâ and âRed Notice.â

As part of his plan of leaving Los Angeles and moving his family to the Big Apple, Matt Damon has now listed his Pacific Palisades home for sale. And he’s hoping to cash in big from the sale, asking $21 million for the Zen-inspired contemporary home set in one of LA’s most desirable neighborhoods.
Recently listed with Eric Haskell, an agent with celebrity real estate brokerage The Agency, Matt Damon’s house is an architectural masterpiece with 7 bedrooms, 10 baths, tons of distinct design features and some pretty extraordinary amenities. The Academy Award-winning actor will be trading all this for a 6,000-square-foot penthouse in Brooklyn, New York, having broken records last year by paying $16.745 million for the top floor unit of a famous former hotel, The Standish.
An architectural gem with striking features & Instagram-worthy interiors
Designed by award-winning architect Grant Kirkpatrick, founding partner of leading-edge design studio KAA Design Group, Matt Damon’s house is an extraordinary contemporary home that showcases masterful craftmanship throughout its 13,508-square-foot interiors.
With a modern-yet-timeless design, the house is anchored by a breathtaking atrium with 35-foot mahogany vaulted ceilings. The interiors are bathed in natural light and mix warm wood elements with natural stone, giving the whole space an inviting, relaxing vibe. Other striking features that deserve a shout-out: clerestory windows and glass walls that fuse the indoors with the outdoor areas.
The family room opens to the magnificent chefâs kitchen with custom mahogany cabinetry, Bluestone countertops and stainless steel Viking, Wolf and Miele appliances. The kitchen then opens to the expansive backyard retreat (but more on that in a minute).
All in all, Matt Damon’s soon-to-be former Los Angeles abode packs 7 bedrooms and 10 baths across 13,508 square feet of space. The primary suite comes with its own private terrace, dual dressing rooms, massage room and a spa-style bath with soaking tub and expansive shower. Pretty much every room offers leafy property and treetop views, adding an extra note of serenity to this wonderfully Zen-inspired home.
Amenities galore and a wonderful backyard retreat
Most celebrity homes tend to outdo themselves when it comes to amenities and bonus rooms and Matt Damon’s house is no exception. Interior amenities include a game room, bar, office, gym, plush media room, staff quarters and wine storage and tasting room. And that’s just what you’ll find inside the house.
Outside, the modern home has quite a few amenities that invite calm and relaxation (perfectly in tune with the rest of the house), including an expansive pool, spa, a cascading waterfall, koi pond and Hawaiian-inspired Lanai with a covered lounge and alfresco dining terrace. To appeal to the little ones — Damon is a father of four — there’s also a nice childrenâs play area.
Matt Damon’s next home is vastly different from his Los Angeles digs
The Academy Award-winning actor, who is starring in the highly anticipated Ridley Scott-directed The Last Duel (to be released this year), will soon be leaving Los Angeles behind. The move has long been planned, with Damon and wife Luciana BozÃ¡n Barroso having purchased a Brooklyn Heights penthouse two years ago for a record-breaking price.
The couple paid $16.745 million for a 6-bedroom, 6,201-square-foot penthouse at The Standish — a historically significant converted building that was originally built in 1903 as a Beaux Arts hotel. At the time, Damon’s purchase set a new record for the borough, making him the owner of the most expensive property ever sold in Brooklyn.
Despite the fact that the penthouse consists of several units merged for extra space, the actor will be downsizing considerably. And the loss in square footage is matched by a significant downgrade in outdoor space — though it’s worth noting that Matt Damon’s new home does have an expansive terrace, a rarity for New York City. There’s no Zen backyard pool though, so we’re pretty sure the Good Will Hunting actor will, at times, miss his Pacific Palisades retreat.
