Hugh Hefner’s legendary 1927 mansion that sits on the edge of Beverly Hills is up for sale with an asking price of $200 million – and that doesn’t include disinfectant.
What it does include is a roommate. That’s right, along with a home movie theater, wine cellar, lavish gardens, and the infamous swimming pool grotto, you get Hugh Hefner as your tenant.
The buyer must agree to let Hefner, who’s owned the 29-bedroom estate since 1971, spend the remainder of his life roaming the halls in his trademark burgundy robe.
“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,” said Playboy CEO Scott Flanders adding that the proceeds would help them, “reinvest in the transformation of our business.”
Prospective buyers are told they can tour the property in its entirety but the Hef’s bedroom is off-limits.
TMZ reports that, “Real estate sources with knowledge of the area say the owners are dreaming when it comes to price. They say the reality is … the house is a tear-down and the real value is the acreage and that a comparable lot sold recently in the area for $60 mil, but the sources say because of its history the Mansion could go for anywhere between $80 mil and $90 mil.”
Besides hepatitis C, the six-acre lot also comes with its own zoo license.
