Nora Lum, commonly known as her stage name Awkwafina, has purchased a four-bedroom mansion in Bel Air for $3.5 million. Awkwafina is a rapper, comedian, and actor, best known for her role in Crazy Rich Asians.
The Bel Air mansion has a modern, boxy architecture that appears simple yet stands out immediately. Located in a gated residence, the mansion sits privately in a secluded drive at the end of a cul-de-sac. Built in 1991 and designed by architect Richard Dodson, the 3,500 square foot space was inspired by Streamline Moderne décor.
The two-story property has an open-concept layout with numerous windows scattered throughout. The spacious living room has built-in floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and a fireplace. Other living space amenities include a dining area and a chef’s kitchen equipped with Viking appliances.
The upstairs level holds an office or creative studio as well as the master suite. The master suite features dual closets, a fireplace, and a spa-inspired bathroom with an oval soaking tub and separate shower. It also features a private deck with a grassy seating area.
Other home amenities include a 2,500 bottle wine cellar, soundproof recording studio, and a gym. Outside has a putting area, heated pool and spa, and grassy lawn spaces perfect for relaxing. The property also has rooftop solar panels and a two-car garage.
The listing was held by Mick Partridge of the Partridge Estates at Hilton & Hyland.
