The Playboy Mansion has been sold for $100 million – but there’s a twist in the terms and conditions
The Playboy Mansion has a new owner after Hugh Hefner sold his man cave to his next-door neighbour for $100 million.
However the new owner, Daren Metropoulos, a 33-year-old principal in investment firm Metropoulos & Co, won’t be moving into his not-so-humble abode any time soon…
Under the terms of the deal, Playboy’s 90-year-old founder may stay there for the rest of his life.
Once Hefner is gone, Metropoulos plans to connect the five-acre Playboy estate to his two-acre property next door.
The homes, built in the 1920s, were originally one estate.
Hefner bought the Playboy Mansion for $1.05 million in 1971, quickly turning it into a sexual playground.
In its heyday it was the scene of countless celebrity-filled parties and innumerable tales of saucy shenanigans.
