A newly single Trevor Noah has acquired an enviable bachelor pad.

The South African host of “The Daily Show” on Comedy Central spent $20.5 million on a spec home in Bel Air, according to Yolanda’s Little Black Book.

Peter Cohen, owner of Beverly Hills-based Cardinal Equities, developed and sold the property. He purchased the 1.3-acre property in 2015 for about $3.75 million, which he then tore down to make room for the new residence.

Spanning 10,000 square feet, the contemporary mansion includes four bedrooms on two floors. There’s also a home theater, 500-gallon saltwater aquarium, wraparound terrace and 63-foot infinity pool.

Expansive views of Los Angeles surround the property.

James Harris and Mauricio Umansky at the Agency had the listing. Jonah Wilson at Hilton & Hyland represented the buyer.

Records show Noah is paying at least $40,000 in mortgage payments per month for the new property.

The comedian-slash-political commentator also owns several properties in New York, where the “Daily Show” films. He currently owns a duplex penthouse at the Stella Tower in Manhattan, which he acquired for $10.2 million in February 2017. [YBB] – Natalie Hoberman
