Trevor Noah, host of “The Daily Show,” has shelled out $20.5 million for an eye-catching estate in Bel-Air, according to sources not authorized to comment on the deal.
Set on a 1.31-acre promontory lot, the 10,044-square-foot home is entered through a pivoting front door made of paneled wood. Polished glass, leathered marble and limestone accent the open-concept floor plan.
In addition to five bedrooms and seven bathrooms, the contemporary house contains a chandelier-topped dining area, a double-island kitchen and a wet bar with a 500-gallon aquarium. Pocketing doors connect two living rooms to the backyard.
Designed to dazzle, the interior is rich with details such as polished glass floors, two-way fireplaces and automated Fleetwood sliding doors. (The Agency)
On the corner of the second story, the 2,200-square-foot master suite takes in city views through walls of glass and a wraparound balcony. Amenities such as a wine cellar, a movie theater, a cigar room, a cabana and a three-car auto gallery fill out the rest of the house.
Lawn abuts a 62-foot swimming pool with a cantilevered edge.
A native of South Africa, Noah has found success in comedy and television. After joining “The Daily Show” as a correspondent in 2014, he succeeded Jon Stewart as host the following year and inked a five-year extension in 2017.
