Although it’s one of Southern California’s wealthiest communities, Bell Canyon is oft-overlooked by the press. Part of the blame lies with its rather remote location — though technically within the Ventura County boundaries, homes there must be accessed by driving through the LA County neighborhood of West Hills, making the area just a particularly far-flung San Fernando Valley suburb. Basically.
And there’s also plenty of celebs. Though it can’t match Hidden Hills is terms of sheer star wattage, Bell Canyon sports its own horde of famous faces: Shaquille O’Neal, Trey Songz, Niecy Nash and Alyssa Milano all call it home.
Back in July (2018), a decidedly contemporary Bell Canyon mansion hit the market with a $4,950,000 thud. That’s an unheard-of price for the low-key area, where most homes range in value from $1 million at the ranch-style end to $2.5 million at the mansion end. But guess what? The aggressive ask worked, and the house was in escrow within a month. It eventually sold for $4.95 million.
Yowza! So who could the spendthrift buyer be? Well, although the property was acquired through a trust, the new owner is someone y’all probably recognize: a man named Joseph “Joe” Rogan.
