The seven-bedroom home was previously owned by Meg Ryan.

James Wan just dropped $18.5 million on his new digs in Bel Air.

The horror director, known for helming The Conjuring, Saw and Furious 7, purchased the 1931 home on June 29.

Sitting on .7 acres, the single-family mansion has seven bedrooms and six bathrooms within its 6,877 square feet. Designed as a Los Angeles staycation abode, the two-story structure has unobstructed views of both the city skyline and Pacific Ocean. 

Wood is a common accent throughout the bright space, with dark hardwood floors and exposed beam ceilings spanning across its bedrooms and living spaces.

In true mansion style, the home doesn't hold back on its numerous luxuries: It is complete with a bar room, screening room theater, gourmet kitchen, office, gym and breakfast room.

Ideal for entertaining, the backyard houses a stand-alone living quarter for guests, which is nestled next to the luxurious swimming pool and lush green gardens.

Wan isn't the first celebrity to own the residence. Meg Ryan purchased the grounds in October 2000 for $8.5 million and lived in the gated oasis for 12 years before selling it in June 2012 for $11.1 million.
