Dwayne sells home in Davie, Florida

Neighbors of actor and former professional wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson can no longer “smell what The Rock is cooking” near one home in Davie’s June Groves.

Johnson and ex-wife Dany Garcia Johnson sold their 8,321-square-foot home at 1782 S.W. 132nd Way to Arik Gonen and wife Oxana Coroluic for $1.18 million. Gonen is in the clothing business.

So, did The Rock “layeth the smacketh down” on the real estate market in Davie like he did on his opposition in World Wrestling Entertainment?

He bought the house brand new for $419,900 in 2000. He sold it for about $761,000 more than that. The Rock practically delivered the “people’s elbow” to the housing market.

The Game Plan and Faster star listed his current address in Beverly Hills, Calif. In July, he sold a condo in Pembroke Pines’ Century Village for $20,000. I’m guessing it was a friend or relative living in the retirement community, although it would be a great to see a movie with Johnson in a motorized scooter chase down the shuffleboard court.

The University of Miami football product hasn’t severed all of his ties to South Florida.

Johnson and his ex still own a house in Davie’s WestRidge development, another house in June Groves (about half the size of the one they sold) and a condo at Parker Tower in Hallandale Beach. They held a $4 million mortgage on two of their South Florida houses from Miami-based City National Bank of Florida.

The former couple has deep ties here. They sponsored the living room in the new alumni center at “The U.” Despite their breakup, the couple appear to be on good terms, even appearing on the red carpet together since the divorce.

  1. WOW! That is almost unheard of in today’s real estate market…selling a house for almost 3 times what was paid for it. A lot of people are losing money on their property. Go Dany & DJ! :-))

  2. I bet Dwayne had a lot of resell value in the house by adding on after he bought it. I remember seeing pics of his house from WWF magazine he did a while back and it looked nice

  3. I also think his name goes a long way in value as well. I am also shocked at how much property he still owns in Florida though.

  4. You ladies are right. DJ’s name went a long way in the resale value. It’s still a very large profit in this economy & considering a lot of other stars aren’t selling their properties (depending on the price) like that.
