Could Michael Bay’s former Bel Air mansion be a transformer?
Built in 1976, the late modern home sold three years ago for $11.45 million. But after a major overhaul overseen by Saota Architecture, the house hit the market again this year, and has now found a buyer for a whopping $41 million.
That’s about eight times the $5.16 million that the director paid for the Jack Warner-designed residence when he bought it in 1999.
Since Bay sold the place in 2014 (and moved into a house just as bombastic as his films), the house has nearly doubled in size. Once a four-bedroom, five-bathroom mansion, it now boasts five bedrooms and nine bathrooms spread across 14,213 square feet of living space.
A long list of amenities includes a gym, massage room, wellness center, sauna, and home theater.
The house sits on a nearly one-acre lot with panoramic views around the city. In addition to a winding driveway and a large motor court, the grounds feature a long, covered patio, an outdoor dining area, and an L-shaped infinity pool with an attached spa.
The house was listed by James Harris and David Parnes of the Agency. Alexander Tarigo of Rodeo Realty represented the buyer.
