Travis VanderZanden, founder of the Bird scooter sharing service, has put his pretty perch on the market yet again, according to Dirt.

This time the modern mansion in Bel-Air is being offered for the reduced price of $19.9 million.

VanderZanden quietly purchased the L.A.-area home from "The Daily Show" host Trevor Noah in 2020 for $21.7 million, Dirt reports. Six months later, he listed it for $24,995,000.

The six-bedroom, nine-bath home has been on and off the market ever since. A sale at its current list price would mean VanderZanden takes a near $2 million hit.

There are plenty of reasons for a discerning buyer to snare the 10,044-square-foot nest at this bargain price. Chief among them is the dramatic pool that juts out over the promontory, overlooking the Bel-Air Country Club as well as the surrounding canyons and city skyline.

The primary suite is surrounded by glass walls, making the bed appear to be floating above the city. The suite also includes a sitting room, dual baths, and boutique-quality closets.
