Are you a multi-millionaire looking for a California home steeped in history? Are you also searching for an octogenarian roommate with a penchant for blondes?
Good news - the Playboy Mansion is reportedly up for sale.
According to TMZ, the legendary mansion which Playboy boss Hugh Hefner purchased in 1971 is up for sale for the bargain basement price of $200m. But there's a catch - Hef wants a clause giving him a life estate so he can live there until he dies.
Playboy Enterprises is listing the property at the hefty price tag due to its history, but sources told the gossip site that $80m is a more accurate figure of its worth, due to poor upkeep - which has been documented in pretty much every former bunny's collective memoirs.
The six acre estate features 29 rooms including a wine cellar, cinema and game, has three zoos, a koi pond, citrus orchard, tennis and basketball courts, swimming pool, a world famous grotto and waterfall.
Another home in the Holmby Hills area sold for $60, but insiders expect it could fetch for an additional $90m due to its pop culture revelance.
Not too shabby for the $1.1m Hef originally purchased it for in the '70s.
