Bunnies were not listed with the property, which spans five acres and boasts 29 rooms, a legendary swimming pool, a grotto and a zoo license.

Movie stars, musicians, sports legends and hangers-on were a staple of Hefner's lavish affairs.

"The Playboy Mansion has been a creative center for Hef as his residence and workplace for the past 40 years, as it will continue to be if the property is sold," Flanders said in a statement.
