Just before New Year’s Eve, ‘The Daily Show’ host Trevor Noah popped out a whopping $27.5 million for a contemporary mansion in Bel Air.

In 2019, he splashed out $20.5 million on a similarly dramatic mansion also found in Bel Air, but offloaded it last summer for $21.7 million. Noah bought this modern mansion, which sits atop a hill, from Mark Rios, an LA architect who built the 11,000-square-foot home for himself. Inspired by Japanese aesthetics, Rios told Architectural Digest previously that he went through 50 plans before settling on the final design and employed dark timbers based on a room he saw in Kyoto and extra-thick walls to protect against the noise of the city below.


Aerial photos from the back reveal that the estate sprawls across its hillside lot with a series of open spaces that adjoin or overlook a scenic backyard with a lawn and infinity-edge pool. Stone, wood, bronze and glass combine in the common spaces including a spacious dining room and a lounge with custom wall coverings. Spread across three stories are six bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, an office, library, elevator, gym, spa, steam room, and a game room. At the top, a movie theater leads to a rooftop terrace. A cabana with a bar and sun deck adjoins the pool out back.
