Trevor Noah pays $28M for Bel Air mansion after selling another
Buyer revealed for Trevor Noah’s Bel-Air mansion
South Korean billionaire Bang Si-Hyuk paid $1M less than ask
The mystery buyer who acquired the Bel-Air mansion formerly owned by comedian Trevor Noah in March 2022 was unmasked.
Bang Si-Hyuk, a music impresario ranked as one of South Korea’s wealthiest businesspeople, was confirmed as buying the 11,400-square feet mansion, according to Dirt.com Forbes estimated Bang Si-Hyuk’s fortune at $2.9 billion.
Noah’s former manse on Stradella Road was acquired for about $26.4 million, according to a survey of listing sites. The initial ask was $29.8 million. Noah bought the home in 2020 for $29 million.
The home was designed by noted architect Mark Rios who runs self-named Los Angeles architectural firm Rios. He is well known for designing Grand Park in downtown Los Angeles, as well as the redesign of downtown’s Music Center. Rios’ design of the mansion on Stradella Road was featured in a 2017 issue of Architectural Digest.
Amenities for Noah’s former house include an infinity pool, a Japanese-style spa and an open-air pavilion for dinner parties. Other interesting notes include the home’s separate wine room with a door leading to a hidden elevator.
Located less than a minute’s drive from notorious mega mansion project The One, Stradella Road is the address for a number of pricey spec developments. Last month, cannabis entrepreneur Ori Bytton put on the market a $38 million mansion located at 1055 Stradella Road. Neighboring homes on the market include a 10,400-square-foot mansion at 1211 Stradella Drive, which has an ask of $23.5 million. Another neighbor at 1035 Stradella Road is currently on the market for $28 million.
