South African comedian and Daily Show host Trevor Noah has reportedly sold his prestigious mansion in Los Angeles for $21.7 million.
That’s a whopping R351 million converted to Rands!
The luxury home is on a 0.5 hectare property and covers just over 930 square metres over two levels. It features 5 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, and had a listing price of $20,995,000, though according to sales agents was sold to Trevor for $20.5 million..
According to Variety, the house was never available on the open market, so it’s not clear what changes Trevor made to it before selling.
The listing realtor, The Agency, describes the house as “the perfect marriage of innovation and sophistication”, with features such as polished glass floors, automatic walls of glass that “blur the line between indoors and out”.
It has a custom saltwater aquarium, stone bar, cigar room and office, with a marble chef’s kitchen, custom cabinetry, and climate-controlled wine storage for up to 250 bottles. The master bedroom is just over 200 square metres, finished with oak floors, automated doors and Lutron shades.
This wasn’t the only house in Trevor’s impressive portfolio, as he also owns a fancy penthouse in New York, from where he’s been shooting “The Daily Show” during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Trevor shelled out about $11.49 million (R130m at the time) in 2017 for the ultra-luxurious apartment in Manhattan.
According to The Wall Street Journal, the apartment has impressive views of Midtown and Downtown Manhattan from the master bedroom and terrace.
The iconic Empire State Building is also visible from a “cast iron tub in the master bath”.
Earlier this month, Trevor made it onto the Fortune 40 Under 40 list of the most influential people in the world.
The prestigious list highlights some of the world’s most powerful emerging leaders in the categories of finance, technology, health care, government and politics, and media and entertainment.
The entertainment category mixes established stars with some of the brightest emerging talents and includes the likes of “Black Panther” director Ryan Coogler, actress Zendaya, “Insecure“ star Issa Rae, Beyoncé and Mzansi’s very own Trevor Noah.
Reflecting on Noah’s career, the publication hailed him as “one of the most visible comedians in the US and beyond”.
