A few months back we uncovered the massive megamansion that explosives-happy Transformers director Michael Bay is building on Bel Air Road, at the former site of a lovely Burton Schutt/Billy Haines mid-century house, which he bought in 2009 and then tore down. It must be just about ready because now Bay is off-loading his nearby house on Stradella Road, which he bought in 1999--a year after Armageddon was released--for $5.16 million. The house was built in the 1970s "on a promontory w/ unobstructed views of the entire Los Angeles basin from Mount Baldy to the Santa Monica Bay" and designed by architect Jack Warner; it comes with four bedrooms, four and three-quarters bathrooms, a dining room, family room with wetbar, library/den, pool and spa, theater, wine cellar, and nearly an acre of land. Bay is asking $13.5 million, because he always, always turns a profit.
