Hugh Hefner sells the Playboy Mansion
Hugh Hefner, the man behind the lifestyle empire Playboy Enterprises (and at times the most envied man on earth), has finally sold his iconic Beverly Hills property, the Playboy Mansion.
According to the LA Times, the property, which has gained notority for hosting some of the world's most infamously salacious parties, was bought for a cool $100 million by Daren Metropoulos, the son of billionaire investor C. Dean Metropoulos and principal at the investment firm Metropoulos & Co.
And while the 90-year-old 'Heff' may no longer be the owner of the vast Gothic Tudor-style property (with grounds so vast and varied that it has its own zoo license), the new owner has allowed the Playboy founder to remain living there until the end of his days...for the lease price of $1 million per year.
All of which means we see no reason why the legendary partying, and the Playboy bunnies should cease to exist roaming around the 29-room mansion, which includes a game room, a screening room with a built-in pipe organ, and the infamous grotto swimming pool.
