A Bel Air home that sat on the market for four years has finally been sold, with a former Olympic curling couple from Hungary scoring the purchase.

Gyorgy Nagy and Ildiko Szekeres spent $6.1 million to buy the 8,360-square-foot estate at Stratford Circle in Bel Air Crest, a gated neighborhood complex with more than 200 homes.

The sale was billed as the most expensive trade in the complex this year, but it wasn’t all glory for the sellers, who records show as Djahangir (John) and Victoria Charchian.

The home sat on the market for four years, ran through four different listing agents and had two price cuts. It originally hit the market for $7.5 million in May 2015, dropped to $6.5 million in February before landing on its $6.1 million mark.

Recently remodeled, the Mediterranean-style estate has six bedrooms and eight bathrooms. There’s also a gym, tennis courts, swimming pool, putting green and playground on the 24,000-square-foot lot.

Jonathan London of Compass and Aram Afshar of Coldwell Banker shared the listing. Christophe Choo of Coldwell Banker represented the buyer.

Bel Air Crest, located off Sepulveda Boulevard, has been known to attract a number of well-heeled buyers. In late 2017, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West sold their 9,000-square-foot mansion in the area to Ukrainian billionaire Marina Acton for $17.8 million. She then sold it 10 months later for nearly $4 million less than what she paid.
