 Playboy Mansion Sold To Next Door Neighbor, But Partying Will Continue As Long As Hugh Hefner’s Aliveconvention-parties
Well, that’s one way to stop those loud, debauched parties next door.Hugh Hefner has sold the iconic Playboy Mansion to his neighbor for what’s believed to be more than $100 million, the Wall Street Journal is reporting.

Once the property clears escrow, Daren Metropoulis, the scion of the investment firm billionaire C. Dean Metropoulos, will be the proud owner of one of the most famous party spots on the planet. He already owns the decidedly-less-famous mansion next door, which he bought for $18 million in 2009.

 

But Metropoulis will have to wait before he hires a cleaning crew to scrub the Mansion – and the famous swimming grotto once discovered to be infested with the bacteria that causes Legionnaire’s Disease.

Hefner doesn’t technically own the property, which is held in the name of Playboy’s parent company. But the 90-year-old Playboy founder had been requiring any buyer to agree to let him live there for the rest of his life.

Hugh Hefner, pictured with then Playboy bunnies Sheila Levell and Holly Madison in 2003, will reportedly be allowed to live there for the rest of his life.

Bought by Playboy Enterprises in 1971 from engineer Louis D. Statham, the 22-room estate has seen its share of wild parties. It’s unclear whether or not the premises’ year-round fireworks permit comes with the deed.

Hefner put the house, which was built in 1927, on the market in January for a reported asking price of $200 million.
