Trevor Noah, host of the “Daily Show,” has made another purchase. The Bel-Air mansion.
The comedian has proven that in real estate he has a seriously pricey appetite, splashing out a whopping $27.5 million on a luxurious home in the swanky neighborhood of Los Angeles. At the end of the year, the transaction closed down, reports LA Times.
In 2018, the contemporary mansion was on the market for as much as $36 million, but over the years, the price was reduced. Until Noah scooped it up for an even smaller sum, it was first cut to $32.5 million and landed at $29.5 million in 2020.
It’s because it’s not his first foray into the Bel-Air market, if the deal looks familiar. The stand-up comedian bought a posh pad for $20.5 million in the same location in 2019. In August, he then signed the house over for $21.7 million. Now he’s jumped back into the real estate game with an even more pricey house.
Planned and designed in 2014 by the architect Mark Rios, the house spans 11,000 square feet and provides indoor-outdoor living, with views of the city and ocean.
In a house flanked by gardens and pathways, the expansive floor plan features six suites, eight large bathrooms, and three powder rooms. Floor-to-ceiling glass doors lead out to a pool in the lounge room. A chef’s kitchen, formal dining area, and den are also available in the main level configuration.
The master bedroom is upstairs and provides two bathrooms and walk-in wardrobes. The second floor is filled with a further four en suite bedrooms, offices, or staff quarters.
A gym, spa, office, restaurant, a third-floor viewing space with a rooftop terrace, and a special hotel suite with a gaming room are additional luxurious facilities.
The property is also fitted with an elevator and automation from Crestron, as well as a safety office and a motor court.
Since 2015, Noah, 36, has presented the “Daily Show”. Ever since the coronavirus pandemic, he has been delivering a stripped-down show from his Manhattan condo.
The show, now called “The Daily Social Distancing Show with Trevor Noah,” shows him in different colors sporting a seemingly endless wardrobe of hoodies. For $10 million, he picked up the Hell’s Kitchen penthouse in 2017.
The South African expressed his good fortune, and allegedly paid the wages of 25 of his crew himself, because when the in-studio production was suspended, they were put on furlough.
He appears to be able to afford it. In 2019, with a total earnings of $28 million, Forbes rated the Emmy-award winning entertainer as the fourth highest-paid comedian, primarily for his stand-up shows. A widely heralded New York Times bestseller was his book, “Born a Crime.”
