Michael Bay has reportedly put one of his Bel-Air properties up for sale. The property , one of the most prestigious in the area, was designed by one of California’s best-known architects the late Jack Warner, whose company also designed the famous Bel-Air Country Club.

The property, covering just less than  8, 000 square-feet, comprises a family room complete with its own bar, an extensive home theater, wine cellar, four bedrooms and no less than six bathrooms, sitting on one-acre of its own ground, and includes a swimming pool shaded by mature trees.

According to  unofficial reports the  lucky buyer is New York property developer Zach Vella , who has been gradually acquiring a portfolio of commercial and residential properties initially in the East coast, although  recently  he has been focusing his activities more on the West Coast.

Although Bay  won’t be too overwhelmed  with the $11.45 million that he finally got for his property, which he only put on the market in December of last year, he is still  showing a tidy profit from the around  $5 million that he paid for  it back in 1999.

Michael Bay is well known for his high impact  box office blockbusters, such as Armageddon, which he produced way back in 1998 and Pearl Harbor three years later.  Michael Bay’s films are reported to  have grossed over three billion dollars world-wide.

Bay also produced  the remakes of such cult horror movies as  The Amityville Horror, A Nightmare on Elm Street ,    two Texas Chainsaw Massacre films and the Friday the 13th series movies through the Platinum Dunes production company of  which he is the  joint owner.
