No need to transform this home. Hollywood director Michael Bay’s contemporary Bel-Air estate was designed in 1976 by architect Jack Warner and features clean lines that are just as striking today. It’s listed for $13.5 million.

Situated off a long and gated drive, Bay’s home at 900 Stradella Rd, Los Angeles, CA 90077 sits on a promontory with unobstructed views of the Los Angeles skyline from Mount Baldy to Santa Monica Bay. The 7,919-square-foot home has 4 bedrooms, 6 baths and living spaces that flow directly to the outside through enormous sliding glass doors. Not surprisingly, the house has a state-of-the-art theater, as well as a wine cellar.

Outdoors, the nearly 1-acre lot features a lush garden, pool and spa, as well as a patio with a kitchen and dining area.

Best known for directing the “Transformers” film series, Bay bought the home in 1999 for $5.16 million, shortly after he directed the box office hit “Armageddon.”

Bay also owns another Bel-Air property that he razed and is reportedly in the midst of rebuilding. Last year he sold another Bel-Air home — just as sleek as the one currently on the market — for $4.9 million.

The listing is held by David Offer of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices.
