‘The Daily Show’ Host Trevor Noah Picks Up $10 Million Penthouse in Midtown Manhattan

BUYER: Trevor Noah,
LOCATION: New York City, NY
PRICE: $10,000,000
SIZE: 3,596 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 3 full and 2 half bathrooms

YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: Word on the New York City celebrity real estate street is that “The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah coughed up a whopping $10 million for a generously terraced duplex penthouse atop Stella Tower, an elegant, low-rise pre-war building just to the west of Times Square on a bustling, tree-lined street in the Hell’s Kitchen/Clinton neighborhood. The never lived in 3,596-square-foot penthouse, with three en suite bedrooms and three full and two half bathrooms, was originally put up for sale nearly year ago with a pie-in-the-sky $12,995,000 price tag that plummeted to $11.495 million before Mister Noah came along and scooped it up at a further 10% discount.

A proper foyer with switch back staircase, itty-bitty coat closet, powder room and laundry closet leads to an almost 29-foot-long combination dining and living room with solid oak floorboards stained a dark chocolate shade of brown and over-sized windows that frame glittery skyline views. The living room is completely open to an eat-in kitchen deluxely fitted and kitted with furniture-grade cabinetry, polished concrete countertops, designer fixtures, and, natch, a full suite of sleek appliances. Two guest/family bedrooms on the lower floor each have an en suite bathroom, one of them with steam shower, and a sun-flooded den at the top of the stairs has a soaring 14-foot ceiling and two entire walls of not-quite floor to ceiling windows that open to a 934-square-foot private terrace with unobstructed views. The master suite privately occupies its own wing of the second floor and offers three closets plus a bedroom-sized dressing room and a luxuriously large bathroom decked out with double sinks, radiant heated chevron-pattern black marble tile floors, a classic cast iron soaking tub and a snazzy glass-enclosed steam shower.

Residents of the soignée Art Deco building, designed in the late 1920s by esteemed architect Ralph Walker who named it after his wife, pay sky-high monthly taxes and fees — Mister Noah’s new penthouse carries common charges of $4,358 per month along with monthly taxes of $4,432 per listing details — that provide them with a stunning, terrazzo-floored lobby staffed with uniformed full-time doormen, an on-site gym, media lounge and garden.

The clearly very successful South African stand-up comedian, who took over “The Daily Show” from Jon Stewart in 2015, didn’t have far to schlep his belongings; He previously rented a two-bedroom and 2.5-bathroom unit with private terrace in the same building that was, according to reports from the time, listed at $15,000 per month.

    Damn, ten million? He could have a huge Mega Mansion for that price in any town but the East Coast instead he has an overpriced gold plated New York Apartment.

    Very proud of Trevor Noah. He deserves to shower himself with luxury. He works very hard for it. Hard work paid off. Dream big and work for it and GOD will make it reality. Thank you Trevor Noah for open up the Door of dreams to our young African Youth around the globe. Dream big and GOD will open all the doors for you. This is the new millenium of African model. This is not wealth gained trough African politic, it is through intelligence and hard work. Thank you Trevor Noah.

    Who can argue with a service entrance that opens onto a wet bar?
