Hugh Hefner’s Famous Playboy Mansion Sold For This Outrageous Amount
The world’s most notorious home, belonging to Playboy founder Hugh Hefner, sold for an outrageous sum of $100 million in 2016. Hefner was one of the richest and most controversial members of the publishing industry. In 1956, he started the popular Playboy Magazine with the $1,000 he borrowed from his mother. The publisher and lifestylist ruled the glamorous world of Hollywood until his death in 2017. Well, enough about Hefner, let’s talk about his notorious Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles, which became the focal point of his life.
Hefner bought The Playboy Mansion in 1971 for a record-breaking price of $1.1 million. The property sale went down as the most expensive in the history of Los Angeles. The opulent and decorated 30-room palace features a wine cellar, basketball court, zoo, aviary, game room, screening room, and tennis court. The mansion was a dream for many celebrities, who wanted to own this haven.
Also, Hefner’s widow, Crystal Hefner sold their Hollywood Hills mansion after his death for $5 million. The couple bought the house for $4.995 million in 2013, months after their marriage.
The house was a contrast of the Playboy Mansion, featuring five bathrooms, four bedrooms, an office, and center-island kitchen. It was an ideal getaway home away from the prying eye of the cameras planted around the Playboy Mansion.
