Michael Bay is moving on up! And he's not blowing up stuff this time. The Transformers director just put his Bel-Air home on the market for $13.5 million.

Curbed LA figures Bay is now selling his home on Stradella Drive because his new mansion he's building on Bel Air Road must be just about done.

His four-bedroom, six-bathroom house built in 1976 by architect Jack Warner has (of course) a home movie theater as well as a wine cellar. The 7,919 square-foot home sits on nearly an acre of land, and the unobstructed views of city are breathtaking. Bay bought the home in 1999, just after directing Armageddon, for $5.16 million, according to Zillow.

He'll definitely ring in some profit once he sells this joint. However, in other news, he still refuses to apologize for Transformers.
