Updated, Friday, September 15th, 2017, 11:10 a.m.: After a few “Transformers” came in and renovated Michael Bay’s house, they decided it was worth $45 million.

The Hollywood director’s former Bel Air house on Stradella Road, which was redeveloped after it was purchased by two British billionaire brothers, hit the market this week, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Developers London & Regional Properties transformed the 15,000-square-foot estate to have five bedrooms, a wellness center, a screening room and an infinity pool. An outdoor deck offers a 280-degree view from the Hollywood Hills to Santa Monica.

The brothers, Ian and Richard Livingston, purchased the director’s home for $11.45 million in 2014, property records show. The two have developed hotels and mixed-use projects in Britain, Europe and Latin America.

The Agency’s James Harris and David Parnes have the listing.
