One of the most famous residences in the history of 20th Century pop culture is up for sale—but anyone interested in buying it needs to make a major accommodation.
According to an Associated Press report, the celebrated Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles is listed for sale, with a $200 million asking price. The mansion, which was purchased by Playboy Magazine publisher Hugh Hefner 45 years ago for a then-princely sum of $1 million, is a 21,987-square-foot property with 22 rooms, three buildings devoted to a private zoo and aviary (along with a pet cemetery for the deceased animals of the collection), and a waterfall and swimming pool that was used in numerous Playboy photo shoots.
However, the sale comes with one catch—anyone who wants to live like Hugh Hefner will have to live with him. The sale is predicated on the new owner allowing the 89-year-old Playboy publisher—and, we assume, his various Playmates—to stay in the house.
Playboy CEO Scott Flanders said the sale of the mansion will help the financially struggling company "reinvest in the transformation of our business."
