We won't blame Meg Ryan if she throws a big party this weekend.
According to the Los Angeles Times, the actress finally sold her Bel-Air home after four years on the market. While the final sale price of $11 million is certainly less than the staggering $19.5 million Ryan originally wanted, we imagine she's quite relieved to have finally unloaded her Spanish-style abode.
We won't blame Meg Ryan if she throws a big party this weekend. <a href="http://www.latimes.com/business/realestate/la-fi-hotprop-meg-ryan-20120621,0,4453108.story" target="_blank">According to the Los Angeles Times</a>, the actress finally sold her Bel-Air home after four years on the market. While the final sale price of $11 million is certainly less than the staggering $19.5 million Ryan originally wanted, we imagine she's quite relieved to have finally unloaded her Spanish-style abode.
Ryan originally bought the classic house—situated in the posh Bel-Air community in Los Angeles—back in 2000 for $8.995 million.
The home has undergone a "museum quality restoration," according to the public listing. While there are no "before" photographs, the home does indeed look very lavish.
The foyer is anything but quaint. The two-story home, originally built in 1931, spans a large 6,877 square feet. Since she couldn't unload the pad, the actress had been renting it out for a steep $40,000 per month.

Here's a look at Ryan's former living room, which boasts one of the four fireplaces in the spread. There are also six bedrooms and seven bathrooms throughout the crib.
French doors are scattered throughout, including these that provide access to the backyard where jaw-dropping city and ocean views await.
Ryan's inability to unload her <i>casa</i> is no secret. Perhaps, it had to do with the price tag. Zillow reports that the median list price for homes in Bel Air is $2.599 million.

Here's a look at the breakfast area, located just off the kitchen.
Ryan's former backyard includes an expansive lawn, a loggia, and a sweet outdoor pavilion. Whoever bought the pad is sure inheriting a sweet abode.
