   The Playboy Mansion, the legendary Holmby Hills estate where Hugh Hefner has worked and made his home for four decades, is on the market for the nine-figure sum, making it among the priciest residential properties for sale in the United States. As part of any sale, the 89-year-old Hefner will be allowed remain in residence for the remainder of his life.

   Among the major works of architect Arthur R. Kelly, the stone-clad Gothic Tudor-style mansion was built for department store scion Arthur Letts Jr. in 1927. Playboy acquired the estate of more than five acres in 1971 for around $1.1 million. Hef will let it go for $20 million.


   Within nearly 20,000 square feet of interiors are 29 rooms including chef’s and catering kitchens, a game room, a wine cellar, and a screening room with a built-in pipe organ. The master suite occupies parts of two floors. Other amenities include a gymnasium, a tennis court, an orchard, and the infamous swimming pool and swim-in grotto. There’s also a four-bedroom guesthouse.

   And, the mansion is also among a select number of Los Angeles properties to have a zoo license. Grounds feature a menagerie of aviaries and arboretums holding a collection of exotic birds and monkeys. Albino peacocks and other animals roam freely through rolling lawns and various gardens.

   Bunnies will not be part of the sale…

Until next time>                               “never forget”
