Inside the California dream home Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson just bought his mom

Dwayne Johnson seems to be a big momma’s boy.

The actor, businessman, and professional wrestler, who is reported to be worth $270 million, paid $3.48 million for his mother Ata’s house in Encino, California.

He has bought her three homes over the years, including one in Florida. This is the third one. Johnson, however, clarified why this one was so unique.

Johnson, 50, said on Instagram, “These days, I’ll gladly take her tears of joy. When I was a little boy, I hated when my mom would cry.””I purchased my mom a new house as a surprise. It took my design team and I eight weeks to prepare it so that when she first walked through her front door, everything she saw was completely unexpected and brand-new.

“Over the years, I’ve had the good fortune to purchase her a few properties, but this one is particularly meaningful to me because she has often expressed to me that she wants this to be her final residence following a lifetime of travel. That’s my dream,” he disclosed. “Mum, nothing feels better than making you happy ~ welcome home.”



The Post was able to collect records indicating that Johnson bought the Cape Cod-style property with six bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms in September. However, his mother only moved in recently.

The gated residence is over 4,400 square feet and features opulent finishes such as a chef’s kitchen with navy cabinetry, a bespoke tile backsplash, Carrera marble countertops, and a living area with white vaulted ceilings and a fireplace.

There’s a breakfast nook in the kitchen as well.

The main suite has a standalone tub, a spa bath with two basins, and direct access to the outdoor area.


Described as a “bona fide Los Angeles sanctuary,” the hedge-enclosed backyard features a big lawn with numerous seating areas, citrus trees, a built-in barbecue, a game area, a pool, and a spa.

Johnson’s mother made her first appearance at the residence in three films that were posted online.

In one video, which features the popular “Over the Rainbow” song by the late Hawaiian singer Israel Kamakawiwo’ole, Ata, 73, can be seen walking toward the house.

The word “Le Samoana” on the sign over the door alludes to his mother’s Samoan ancestry.



In two additional videos, Johnson gave a tour of the interior, pointing out meaningful aspects of its interior décor.

One room, which Johnson labeled the “Smackdown Room,” showcases rock/DJ memorabilia over the years.

Another room showcases her collection of vintage ukuleles mounted on a wall. Of the photographs also visible in the space, Johnson wrote: “I was able to unearth pictures of our ancestors that she hasn’t seen since she was a child growing up in Samoa.”
