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.

As the Los Angeles Times notes, this is the second of Bay’s former residences to sell this year. A mansion he once owned in Montecito sold for $7.2 million in September.
