Meg Ryan’s Home is Back on Bel-Air Market

Posted: Updated:

Could third time be a charm? Hopefully it is for Meg Ryan, who just relisted her home on the Bel-Air real estate market for $11.4 million.

According to the property's price history, this is the third time Ryan has listed the home since she bought it in 2000. Perhaps the news of home values rising and a housing bottom in sight makes her optimistic the time is right to find a buyer.

Best known for her roles in rom-coms like "When Harry Met Sally," "Sleepless in Seattle" and "You've Got Mail," Ryan purchased the home for $8.5 million. She first listed the home for sale in October 2008 for $19.5 million, but took it down in February, only to relist it again in October 2009 for a decreased price of $14.2 million.

With no takers, the blonde actress decided to go the landlord route, offering up the classic Spanish-style home as a $40,000-per-month rental. Rumor has it that Diane Keaton rented the home, but has moved on, leading Ryan to try her luck at selling again.

Located in the hills of Bel-Air surrounded by other gracious and private estates, Ryan's home is described as a "museum quality" restoration with stenciled and painted wood ceilings and tiles as well as wrought-iron work details and archways. Like the other homes in the neighborhood, the estate is extremely private, set back from the road behind walls and thick hedges. The home sits on just under three quarters of an acre and includes a pool, guest house and several outdoor living spaces.

The 6-bedroom, 7-bath home has 6,877-square-feet of living space, two family rooms, a film-screening room, separate bar off the kitchen and enormous master suite.

According to Zillow's mortgage calculator, a monthly payment on Ryan's home will be $42,133, assuming a 20 percent down payment on a 30-year-fixed-rate mortgage.

    Borrowing from the boat owners' passel of proclamations, may I suggest: "The best two days of a vacation rental owner's life are the day he buys it and the day he sells it…" Those who live near the shore
    Those who live near the shore often hear rumors about the piles of money that vacation rentals bring in. "The summer months' rental income pays for the entire year's mortgage," folks will say. That may be true, but what about the rest of the expenses?
