Born and bread in Mzansi, Trevor Noah, the Emmy Award-winning host of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” has splashed out $27.5 million on an angular and architecturally impressive mansion in Bel Air, a neighborhood favored by some of Los Angeles’ biggest-spending and biggest-name buyers.
Nestled in the hills of Bel Air overlooking the enclave’s upmarket country club, the right-angled residence is touted as an “iconic architectural statement” in its listing, held by Linda May and Drew Fenton of Hilton & Hyland, both of whom, through a representative, declined to comment on the deal.
Noah, 36, bought the home last week using a trust, property records show.
Designed by Mark Rios, a fellow of the American Institute of Architects, the six-bedroom home epitomizes the Los Angeles’ hallmark of indoor/outdoor living, according to the listing.
Fitted with a host of materials like stone, wood, bronze and glass, the property has floor-to-ceiling glass doors and windows, through which you can catch a glimpse across the city and out to the ocean, a sun-filled living room, a chef’s kitchen, an office and a gym.
It also includes a wine cellar, a spa, a screening room, a rooftop terrace, an outdoor bar and an infinity pool.
When the home initially hit the market in 2018 it was with a $36 million price tag, a figure that has been gradually trimmed down since, before finally ending up, most recently, at $29.5 million.
