Playboy Mansion Sold To Hugh Hefner’s Next-Door Neighbor

Hugh Hefner, who once starred on reality show “The Girls Next Door,” has now sold his beloved Playboy Mansion to the boy next door.


The 20,000-square-foot home has been sold for an undisclosed amount to Daren Metropoulos, the principal at Metropoulos & Co., a private equity firm that owns Hostess Brands, according to USA Today.

Metropoulos is actually Hefner’s neighbor, having purchased the house next door from Hef in 2009 for $18 million, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The mansion, located in the ritzy Holmby Hills area of Los Angeles, was put on the market for $200 million in January.

As part of the deal, the 90-year-old Hef will be allowed to live in the mansion for the rest of his life.

The Playboy mag mogul has lived there since the company bought the mansion 45 years ago for just over $1 million.

The stately home was built in 1927 and sits on five acres. Amenities include 29 rooms, a game house, home theater, wine cellar and a swimming pool with a cave-like grotto.

Although the home comes with a rare zoo license, ABC News says it is unknown whether the grounds’ year-round fireworks permit comes with the deed.
