Playboy Mansion to sell for record $105 million, about half its asking price

Itís the end of an era for the storied Playboy Mansion, the erotic adult playground that became as famous as its legendary owner.

Six months after it was put up for sale with a whopping $200-million sticker price, Hugh Hefnerís mansion has found a buyer at roughly half that amount: $105 million, according to sources not authorized to comment publicly on the sale.

Daren Metropoulos, the son of billionaire investor C. Dean Metropoulos, is in contract to buy Hefís longtime Holmby Hills residence.

A stagnant real estate market for ultra-high-end homes didnít appear to hurt the Playboy Mansion: A completed deal would be the biggest home sale ever recorded in Los Angeles County. Despite the $200-million figure, real estate agents didnít expect the home to fetch anywhere near that; the price was likely designed to grab headlines and drum up interest.

1. I can't remember where, but I read it was a dump

Just my random rememberance of a an article I won a few years ago, maybe it's been renovated, or maybe the land it is on is worth more than the housing, or the article was full of baloney.



Peace

5. I hope he tears it down when that pimp rapist Hugh Hefner is in it That guy is in the same league

as Bob Guccione and Larry Flynt They're all the same Hef tries to justify running a brothel for movie stars with articles by Truman Capote and Hunter S Thomson, while Flynt goes for the Libertarian/libertine defense

In defense of Flynt he underwent a catharsis after the assassination attempt but he still needs to admit that porn is an industry not an aesthetic

They were all just pimps and abusers with money

It is worth noting that the Hef Mansion is the prototype for Trump's architectural masterpieces of ersatz Rocco indulgence with gobs of gold plating

Nothing sez style more than gold bath fixtures and red flocked wall paper
