Michael Bay sells his Bel-Air contemporary

Michael Bay, the "Transformers" film series producer, has sold his estate in Bel-Air for $11.45 million.

The three-story clean-lined contemporary was designed by the late Jack Warner, whose architectural firm worked on the Bel-Air Country Club. The 7,919-square-foot, museum-like house features high ceilings, a family room with a bar, library, a home theater, a wine cellar, four fireplaces, four bedrooms and six bathrooms.

The nearly one-acre promontory has views that encompass the Los Angeles Basin, Mt. Baldy and Santa Monica Bay.  The site includes a swimming pool and mature trees.

Bay, 49, has produced and/or directed a host of action films, including "Pain & Gain" (2013), "Pearl Harbor" (2001) and "Armageddon" (1998).

His fright flicks include "Friday the 13th" (2009), "The Amityville Horror" (2005) and two "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" films (2003 and 2006). Among upcoming films are “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” and “Transformers: Age of Extinction.”

Bay bought the house in 1999 for $5.16 million, public records show.

David Offer of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices was the listing agent. James Harris and David Parnes of the Agency represented the buyer.
