Hugh Hefner wants someone to buy the Playboy Mansion, but there are a lot of things wrong with his attempted sale.
From overcharging for the outdated estate to demanding to live in it until his death, we don’t know if anyone will be making an offer on the mansion anytime soon.
At 89-years-old, and reportedly in sprightly condition, it might be a good while before he leaves his legacy behind.
This is significant because Hefner has demanded that whoever purchase the Playboy mansion, which is being sold for $200,000, must be okay with him residing there until his death.
Up until not that long ago, before he married current wife Crystal Harris and changed his polygamist ways, Hef was demanding his girlfriends to engage in bi-weekly sex parties, so we can’t imagine he’d be the best roommate. Depending on your lifestyle, of course.
The thought of this could be gross for many would-be purchasers, especially since regular maintenance and upkeep was allegedly not Hef’s forte.
According to multiple accounts, Hef has had a desire to keep changes to the mansion minimal over the years, and this has resulted in the inside of the mansion being “cheap” “worn” and “outdated,” several former playmates have gone on the record saying.’
Described as a “living time capsule of a bygone era,” many suspect that whoever purchases the mansion with the intention of living in it and not turning it into a museum or a historic site will have some pricey renovations to fund.
That doesn’t mean the mansion doesn’t have it’s fair share of luxury. The mansion is reportedly equipped to handle a $1.2 million food operation, where chefs and staff work round-the-clock to provide 24-hour food service to any guest or resident of the house.
On paper, it’s also quite the estate.
According to USAToday, “the property is 20,000 square feet [and has] 29 rooms and a four-bedroom guesthouse. The next owner will have reign over a home theater, gym, tennis court, swimming pool and even a zoo license.”
According to multiple sources, Hefner is worth around $50,000,000, but the sale of the Playboy Mansion would go mostly to Playboy Enterprise, which is trying to revamp itself and stay relevant as the age of the Internet renders it dated.
