The Westside and beach communities in Los Angeles had an especially active week in the celebrity real estate world. In Malibu’s pricey market, a pocket listing that has been shopped around among A-listers officially hit the market this week. If sold at its asking of $125 million, the estate could set a new L.A. County record.

Ron Meyer, the vice chairman of NBCUniversal, is making things official in Malibu. After splitting up from his wife, Kelly Chapman Meyer, the entertainment exec had been quietly shopping the 3.1-acre estate in Paradise Cover off-market. He’s now listed it for sale on the Multiple Listing Service for $125 million. The property includes a 14,000-square-foot home with five bedrooms and six bathrooms, private access to a secluded beach, a large pool, and a tennis court. Kurt Rappaport at Westside Estate Agency has the listing.

Farther south, a prolific property owner has sold his home in the Palos Verdes Estates for $14.1 million. That’s down from an initial ask of nearly $27 million. Alexander Haagen III, who owns the Empire Polo Club where the Coachella Valley Music and Arts festival is held, sold his home to a woman named Deborah D. Adkins. The 8,847-square-foot home on Via Elevado has four bedrooms and six baths, a billiard room, massage room and wine cellar. The private 3.3-acre compound, built in 1936, was owned by the Haagen family for more than 40 years.

Television host and political commentator Trevor Noah has buckled down in Bel Air with a $21 million purchase. The star of “The Daily Show” acquired a new spec home built by Peter Cohen, owner of Beverly Hills-based Cardinal Equities. 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. Records show Noah is paying at least $40,000 in mortgage payments per month for the new property.

Joey Votto, a Cincinnati Reds slugger, spent $10.5 million to acquire a three-story home on the Strand. The 3,800-square-foot modern residence includes four bedrooms and five bathrooms on three stories. There’s also an oceanfront deck, media room, 120-bottle wine wall, elevator and four fireplaces. The property first hit the market for sale in May 2018 seeking $13.2 million. Votto, who has been playing for the Reds since 2007, signed a 12-year contract worth $251.5 million in 2012, the longest guaranteed contract in major league baseball history.
