Trevor Noah has dropped $27.5 million (R420 million) on a mansion in Bel Air.

The news comes shortly after sources shared The Daily Show host was house hunting with girlfriend, Minka Kelly. At the time their relationship first made headlines, an insider said things are "getting serious" between the two, and now we know just how serious things are.

The Los Angeles Times reports that the 36-year-old purchased the 11 000-square-foot hillside home on 30 December.

According to Architectural Digest, the mansion's three stories has six bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, a movie theatre leading to a rooftop terrace, a library, office, gym and steam room.

The comedian's new home is serviced by an elevator, and the glass windows and doors allow one to take in the breathtaking views of Los Angeles.

The backyard has an infinity pool, which also overlooks the city, as well as a two-story cabana.

The home was purchased from architect Mark Rios, who designed it from scratch, keeping traditional Japanese architecture in mind.

"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," Mark told AD in 2017.

Trevor's new neighbours include the likes of Jennifer Aniston, Beyoncé, Jay Z and Elon Musk.
