      Price

      $11,450,000

      Mega-producer Michael Bay just sold his blockbuster Los Angeles home for $11.45 million.

      The 4 bedroom, 6 bathroom home has nearly 8,000 square feet of living space, and is primely located in the celebrity enclave between Bel Air and the Holmby Hills in Los Angeles.

      Bay sold this estate because he recently completed construction on a brand new home that has been in the works since he purchased it in October 2009 for $10.9 million. To much outrage, he tore down an architecturally significant home to build an even bigger and more contemporary estate.

      The new home is designed by Oppenheim Architecture + Design, and according to the architects’ description of the project, Bay’s new mansion is nestled into a hillside, spans 30,000 square feet and features a large theater, movie prop museum, parking, spa and two master bedroom modules hovering above the main living quarters.

      Quite the project!

      While Bay transitioned into his new home, he was also working on selling his former home, which he purchased in 1999 for $5.16 million and originally listed in December 2013 for $13.5 million.

      The striking contemporary estate is off a long gated drive in prime Bel Air on a promontory w/ unobstructed views of the entire Los Angeles basin. Designed by the late architect Jack Warner, this extremely private home features clean, crisp lines, grand scale museum-like spaces, soaring ceilings, ideal indoor/outdoor flow and dramatic views from every room. A spacious central living room has a huge fireplace, a large formal dining room, and separate library/den that opens to a lush, private garden, pool & spa.

      Other amenities include a state-of-the-art theatre (naturally), wine cellar, and gorgeous wood & stone floors.

                    Studio City is quickly becoming one of the must-buy neighborhoods in the Los Angeles area. The neighborhoods are already littered with famous faces and entertainment industry insiders, and the latest resident to join the ranks is Emmy-nominated producer Mark Wilding. Wilding’s name may ring a bell from the credits on hit shows such as Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice, Scandal, Charmed, The Tony Danza Show and Ellen Degeneres original sitcom “Ellen.” That kind of resume means that Wilding has some bucks to toss around in the real estate game. According to public records, he just paid $1.825M for his new home on Valley Spring Lane.

Richly appointed marble fireplaces, lovely crown moldings, intricate mill work and handsome hand-scraped walnut hardwood floors welcome guests.

Luxurious master suite comes complete with a sumptuous marble spa-like master bath.

                    The outdoor area includes a swimmer’s pool with baja step, spa and oversized studio, which can be used as guest quarters.

                     Wilding is currently selling his former home at 5326 Donna Ave in Tarzana for $1.09M. He purchased that home for $670k in June 1998.
