Upclose With Trevor Noah’s R420 Million Mansion
Trevor Noah continues winning after he dropped a massive R420 million on a new mansion located in the exclusive Los Angeles suburb of Bel-Air.
The 36-year-old Daily Show host invested $27.5 million in a Bel-Air mansion for himself and his lover 40-year-old actress Minka Kelly. The couple’s new neighbours now include Jennifer Aniston, Beyoncé, Jay Z and the second richest man in the world, Elon Musk.
Trevor and Minka’s new home which features an eye-catching boxy white design with copious windows for plenty of natural light is located at 14930 Corona Del Mar.
The sleek 11,000-square-foot (1000-square metres) mansion has six bedrooms, eight full bathrooms and three half-bathrooms, all with views of the Santa Monica mountains and the Pacific ocean, according to a Wall Street Journal report in September 2020 when the house was still for sale.
Noah nabbed the house at almost a 25% discount from its original $36 million asking price in 2018. The house was previously owned by designer Mark Rios, 64, and his husband, who custom-designed the house in 2014 when they realized the original house on the property, which they bought for $650,000 in 1996, was sinking into the ocean, according to a 2017 interview with Architectural Digest.
The home’s front is white and windowless, while the back has floor-to-ceiling windows. Designed for outdoor entertaining, the house has an outdoor bar, kitchen, fireplace, dining area, a 15-by-60 infinity pool and a landscaped “lemon terrace” filled with citrus trees, Rios told the Wall Street Journal in September when he had the house listed for $29.5 million.
The house also has a spa, sauna, massage room, gym, library, office, home theatre and an impressive master bedroom with two bathrooms and a large window that opens up to mountain views.
The wine room has a glass-box elevator that brings you down to the kitchen, where appliances are hidden behind dark wood cabinets. A hidden wall can be pulled out to close off the kitchen, according to the WSJ report.
Noah also owns a $10 million penthouse in New York City and owned another Bel Air mansion worth $20.5 million, which he sold for $21.7 million in August, according to Architectural Digest.
