Debra Messing, who stars on the TV series “Smash” set on Broadway, has sold her house in Bel-Air in a  month for $11.4 million.

The traditional-style house, designed by architect Paul R. Williams and built in 1937, features bay windows, updated interiors, a den, a bar, a gym, four fireplaces, six bedrooms and eight bathrooms in 6,400 square feet. The more than half-acre gated property, sheltered by tall hedges, includes a swimming pool, a cabana and a brick driveway.

Messing bought the property from actress Renee Zellweger in 2003 for $7 million, public records show.

The 44-year-old actress co-starred on the sitcom “Will & Grace” (1998-2006) and the mini-series “The Starter Wife” (2007). The NBC musical drama in which she now stars is in its second season.


Loren Judd of Coldwell Banker’s Beverly Hills North office was the listing agent. Scott Underwood of Meadowbrook Realty represented the buyer.
