Trevor Noah pays $28M for Bel Air mansion after selling another
“Daily Show” host’s new 11K sf estate about same size as property he unloaded in exclusive enclave
Comedian Trevor Noah ended 2020 with a bang, paying $27.5 million for a Bel Air mansion.
Noah, who has hosted “The Daily Show” since 2015, bought the 11,000-square-foot home from architect Mark Rios of Rios Clementi Hale Studios, according to the Los Angeles Times.
It’s Noah’s second mansion purchase in Bel Air. In 2019, he paid $20.5 million for a 10,000-square-foot spec mansion in the exclusive enclave and sold it last year for $21.7 million.
Noah’s new three-story home has six bedrooms and 11 bathrooms, as well as an office, library, gym, steamroom, and home theater. There’s also a rooftop terrace area. The home sits on a hillside, and includes a pool.
While luxury sales in Los Angeles ground to a halt in the spring when the virus first hit, they recovered and roared back starting in July. Plenty of big residential sales closed last year.
Demand continues for single-family homes at the upper end of the market. In December, 57 deals were inked for properties above $2 million, which compared to the 50 that sold in December 2019. [LAT] — Dennis Lynch
