America’s Most Infamous Address, Known for its Legendary Parties and Lavish Lifestyle, Hits the Market
“This is the right time to seek a buyer for this incredible property who understands the role the Mansion has played for our brand and enables us to continue to reinvest in the transformation of our business,” said Playboy Enterprises, Inc. CEO, Scott Flanders. “The Playboy Mansion has been a creative center for Hef as his residence and workplace for the past 40 years, as it will continue to be if the property is sold.”
The crown jewel of L.A.’s “Platinum Triangle,” situated on five picturesque acres in Holmby Hills, the Playboy Mansion is a nearly 20,000-square-foot residence that is both an ultra-private retreat and the ultimate setting for large-scale entertaining. The estate features the 29-room main residence, a four-bedroom guest house and every amenity imaginable, including a catering kitchen, wine cellar, home theater, game house, gym, tennis court and freeform swimming pool with a large, cave-like grotto. The Playboy Mansion is also one of a select few private residences in L.A. with a zoo license.
“The Agency couldn’t be more proud to be representing one of the most well-known estates in the country,” said Co-founder and CEO Mauricio Umansky, one of the principal listing agents on the estate. “With its iconic style and immaculate grounds, the Mansion has inspired so many properties throughout Southern California.”
The Playboy Mansion was originally designed by renowned American architect Arthur R. Kelly in 1927. The residence has not changed hands since 1971 when Playboy Enterprises, Inc. purchased the home for $1,050,000, the largest real estate transaction in L.A. history. Its sprawling acreage is nestled along the edge of the Los Angeles Country Club in the coveted Holmby Hills neighborhood between Beverly Hills and Westwood.
