Meg Ryan has listed her Bel Air property on and off over the past 4 years, dropping the original asking price from around $19 million to $17m, and finally closing a deal on the home this week for the relative bargain of $11.125m.
The “When Harry Met Sally” actress has held the property since 2000, picking up the place for a shade under $9 million. Boasting six bedrooms and seven bathrooms, a pub room, four fireplaces (including the one in the guesthouse), swimming pool, ocean and city views, arched doorways and Spanish style ironwork, the place had been leased out for about $40,000 a month.
The rumors were abuzz on the property for the past few years that the Afflecks or the Beckhams might claim the gorgeous home, and Diane Keaton had rented the place for a little while. The almost 7,000 square foot place sits in a pocket of Bel Air near to homes owned by Clint Eastwood, Robert Redford and neighbor Tom Ford.
As for mama Meg? Well, she’s been in more of a New York state of mind lately. Must be all those deli sandwiches.
