The world’s most famously debauched party house is hitting the open market. It was just announced that the Playboy Mansion is going up for sale, and if you want to buy it, there’s a pretty creepy catch.
It’s being said that the iconic 88-year-old LA mansion, in all of its six-acre glory, is going to hit the real estate market within the next month, and its owner, Playboy Enterprises, is going to ask for around $200 million dollars from potential buyers. That’s a ridiculous amount money for a well-used grotto and several filthy bedrooms!
But here’s the catch. Even if you’ve completely lost it and are willing to shell out all that money for the home, it comes with a weird stipulation. You have to let geriatric Playboy founder Hugh Hefner live with you like some sort of ancient roommate. We’re not kidding!
Playboy Enterprises says that whoever buys the mansion will be required to give Hef a life estate. That means he can continue to live in the mansion until he dies…potentially in your new home. Did anyone else just shiver?
It’s also being said that potential buyers are able to tour the entire property when it hits the market, but Hefner’s bedroom is off limits. Really? The guy gets to keep the biggest bedroom room in the house, too?
This sounds like a terrible deal for an over-priced, rickety old house!
