The Rock sells his rockin’ 9,000-square-foot mansion

Nothing will make you want to quit your job, become a professional wrestler, and then quit wrestling to becoming a major motion picture star more than seeing the 9,153-square-foot home Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson just sold for nearly $5 million. (Reports say he indeed got close to his $4.9 million asking price.)
The six-bedroom, seven-bath sprawling mansion is in the swanky gated community of Hidden Hills, outside Los Angeles, and includes luxurious features the rest of us little people can only dream about. There's the plush home theater with a big screen, leather seats, and surround-sound; a slate-rock waterfall in the yard; sweeping tree-top views; an outdoor kitchen; infinity pool; a ridiculously huge master bedroom with a fireplace; a pastel-decorated bedroom fit for a princess (that would be Johnson's lucky 10-year-old daughter, Simone) a two-story foyer; and a gourmet kitchen with stainless-steel everything, including a commercial-grade range and at least three ovens (it's hard to count them all). The home even boasts a room the 40-year-old has turned into his own personal barber shop with a hydraulic barber chair, a flatscreen TV and floor-to-ceiling windows. Hey, the guy's gotta make sure he's properly coiffed in order to keep getting those big-budget roles coming…
So where's Johnson going? Feeling a little cramped in the 9,000-square-foot L.A. pad, the actor has purchased a 13,153-square-foot estate in South Florida for only $3.45 million from Miami Dolphins player Vernon Carey. That means he gets a bigger place and gets to pocket more than a million in profits, even after you include realtors' commissions.
No word on who the "businessman" is who bought The Rock's L.A. home, but sounds like business is going pretty well for him these days.
