Los Angeles has long been the home of choice of the entertainment industry’s biggest names. But it looks like the city of angels is losing a celebrity resident as late-night show host Trevor Noah says goodbye to his Bel-Air home for good.
Let’s take a look inside his former residence.
The South African-born comedian reportedly offloaded his palatial residence in the exclusive neighborhood for $21.7 million. He originally purchased the place less than two years ago for $20.5 million.
That said, Noah didn’t seem to have earned much from the sale if you factor in the closing costs, taxes, and upkeep he paid for as the home’s previous owner. It is unknown whether he made any significant changes to the property as the house was never listed on the open market.
The identity of the five-bedroom home’s new owner remains private as they made the purchase through a blind trust.
The home is still relatively new as it was only completed in 2018. It boasts of having over 10,000 square feet of living space spread out in the notably narrowly designed mansion.
Noah’s former digs is designed in a ‘blocky and aggressively contemporary’ style as evident by its numerous glass walls and modern amenities. It also features the blurring between the indoors and the outdoors that’s popular with California homes.
It’s equipped with Control 4 home automation, which can cost up to $250,000 to install. Elsewhere in the residence is a gourmet kitchen equipped with designer appliances and two islands.
The residence also has its own home theater, cigar room, and a 500-gallon saltwater aquarium. Outside, you’ll find a 62-foot infinity pool that has gorgeous views of the city lights nearby.
Noah’s decision to let go of his L.A. place might have something to do with him spending more time in his New York City penthouse, which also serves as his main residence.
The 36-year-old has also been hosting ‘The Daily Show’ from the $10.2 million penthouse since the pandemic put a stop to regular production practices. Noah reportedly bought the place in 2017 after he started hosting the Comedy Central show.
The two-story penthouse spans 3,600 square feet and has three bedrooms. More space can be found outside thanks to its 930-square-foot wraparound terrace.
Noah’s current home is located in the same building where he has been renting a place before hosting ‘The Daily Show’.
