Trevor Noah is definitely the guy that he thinks he is… After selling his Trevor Los Angeles mansion for R351 million, the SA-born comedian has now purchased another mansion in LA worth $27.5 Million
The house’s three stories comprise six bedrooms and 11 bathrooms, plus a movie theater leading to a rooftop terrace, as well as a library, an office, a gym, and a steam room. The space is outfitted in stone, bronze, and glass; serviced by an elevator; and adorned throughout with walls of glass pocket doors highlighting the breathtaking aerial views of L.A. The picturesque backyard features an infinity pool overlooking the city and a two-story cabana offering both covered patio seating and a rooftop sundeck.
Noah bought the home from architect Mark Rios, who designed it from scratch after the original structure began sinking down the hill and had to be torn down. Rios told AD in 2017 that he designed the house with peace and simplicity in mind—including the addition of 18-inch-thick walls to muffle the sounds of the city below—taking cues from traditional Japanese architecture.
“The library, in particular, was fashioned after a room in Kyoto, using heavy, dark timbers. And the spa resembles old ryokans I’ve visited in Japan,” Rios said, noting, “I was more experimental and did more in the detailing with this home than I’ve done for past clients.”

The Daily Show host’s latest major purchase came just a few months after Noah, who also maintains a luxurious penthouse apartment in Manhattan, offloaded another showstopping Bel Air home. He sold that one, a 10,000-square-foot ultramodern mansion located on 1.3 acres of hillside property, for $21.7 million last September, less than two years after buying it for $20.5 million in January 2019.
