For $200 Million, You Could Own the Playboy Mansion... But Hef Comes With It
For a cool $200 million, the Playboy Mansion could be yours. But you have to accept Hugh Hefner as a roommate for the rest of his life.
You, too, can live in the fabled Playboy Mansion. But you also have to live with 89-year-old Hugh Hefner.
The exclusive estate went up for sale Monday and it only costs $200 million, the Associated Press reported.
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.
Hefner, the magazine's founder, would retain the right to live there for the rest of his life. Company spokesmanJohn Vlautin said the celebrity oublisher has been granted that right since the firm purchased his rambling compound for more than $1 million 45 years ago.
The sale is one of several departures from the glossy compendium of scantily clad, if clad at all, voluptuous women. The magzine recently announced that nude women will no longer be part of its U.S. print edition.
Hugh Hefner and his wife, Crystal, who is 60 years his junior:
In August 2014, the magazine's web site stopped posting naked photos.
The mansion's sale would help "reinvent the transformation of our business," said Playboy CEO Scott Flanders, according to the wire service.
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.
