Given that Trevor Noah has been hosting the Daily Show from his $10.2 million midtown Manhattan penthouse these past few months, it makes sense that he might no longer need to hold on to his less-frequented Bel Air mansion. According to Variety, the South African comedian recently sold off the ultramodern behemoth for $21.7 million, after paying $20.5 million for it in early 2019.
The property sits on 1.3 acres and boasts five bedrooms and eight bathrooms spread across 10,044 square feet. The main suite alone occupies much of the second floor and measures 2,200 square feet, with two marble bathrooms, two custom-built walk-in closets, and a private patio/lounge. The house is extremely boxy in design, with large swaths of glass windows and sliders balancing out its concrete exteriors. A modern, minimalist fireplace separates the living room from a dedicated dining room, but otherwise, most of the common living spaces flow into each other. There’s a gourmet kitchen with two marble-topped islands, a cigar room, a cozy family room, and a home theater. A 500-gallon saltwater aquarium is a showstopper on the ground floor.
The main suite and four en suite guest bedrooms are located on the second floor, each with their own wall of glass windows and sliders. Out back, there’s an open-air lounge, an outdoor dining space, and an impressive spread of lawn. A 62-foot infinity pool juts out over the hillside, and there are unobstructed views of the downtown skyline, and even the Pacific Ocean on clearer days. Despite dabbling in Los Angeles real estate, Noah’s primary residence remains his duplex penthouse in NYC’s Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood, which he purchased for $10 million in February 2017.
