In the winter of 2018-2019, ‘Daily Show’ host Trevor Noah acquired this high modern in Bel-Air for $20.5 million. But the house was not destined to be a longtime home for the comedian; he recently came up with a buyer to take it off his hands for $21.7 million.
The house dates to the early 1960s, but has been overhauled. As it stood when Noah took possession of it: atmospheric, boxy, and flashy in the modern style. Like many recently revised high-dollar moderns, texture and surface are essential to the living style. The polished aesthetic frequently erases the boundary between interiority and exteriority.
Bedroom count stands at just three; scant accommodations for a 10,000 square-footer, but the size of the master suite reveals much. If the numbers are right the home was certainly designed for an owner living an entertainment-ready lifestyle. Common areas bear out the surmise, offering broad, open space in abundance for gatherings that range into the backyard’s poolside lawn and step-up patio.
Noah hosts The Daily Show on Comedy Central. He earned $28 million in 2019, according to Forbes. The bulk of his earnings came from stand-up.
