Celebrity Homes: Playboy Mansion After Hugh Hefner – Hugh Hefner had made a deal to stay inside the home until his death. Playboy founder Hugh Hefner lived in the Playboy Mansion since 1971, and made it a landmark of its own. But in the final year of his life, Hefner had sold the property, and was paying $1 million in rent to his own neighbor. Hefner died Thursday at 91, leaving the future of the Playboy Mansion uncertain, though its legacy of excess will certainly remain for generations.

According to CNNMoney, the 20,000-square-foot mansion itself has 12 bedrooms with multiple kitchens, a gym, a screening room, a game room, and a wine cellar. The grounds have a tennis court, a guest house, a pool, and that infamous grotto. It also has a zoo license, which means animals like monkeys and exotic birds roam freely throughout the property, located in the Holmby Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles.
The Los Angeles Times reports it was built in 1927 and designed by Arthur R. Kelly for the department store heir Arthur Letts Jr. Playboy bought the property in 1971 for $1.1 million, and sold it for 100 times that in 2016. The home, which was owned by Playboy Enterprises before the sale, became a symbol of the Playboy brand, and all the sexual freedom and wild partying that came with it. Stories of parties at the mansion became Hollywood lore, and later on it became home to the E! reality show The Girls Next Door.
