California Playboy Mansion for sale
Put your blueprints aside!
Now you don't have to build a dream home with dozens of rooms, a wine cellar, game room, movie theater, hot tub the size of a pool, and a zoo license. You can actually BUY the extremely luxurious and iconic Playboy Mansion in Holmby Hills with all its amenities and more. Umm, not buy, Hugh Hefner himself, but share!
The 22,000 square foot castle-like home went on sale January 11 for $200 million. Keeping with Hef's wishes, the sale would reserve a life estate for Hugh, and the 89-year-old founder of Playboy Enterprises would continue living and working there. He has lived there since moving from the original Playboy Mansion (circa 1959) in Chicago.
If you live in Southern California, you have probably seen numerous mansions. But this mansion has added interest due to the life and times of its famous residents. And if you've been lucky enough to visit the Playboy Mansion you can stop reading.

I doubt there will be any open houses and only seriously interested parties need ask to walk through. When crunching the numbers, be sure to budget in the cost of a full-time staff!
The value limit on reverse mortgages is $625,500 so any baby boomers interested in retiring in luxury of that sort will probably want to seek other types of financing.
