It is reported that Playboy founder Hugh Hefner is selling his Holmby Hills mansion for $28 million. Is it an effect of the ongoing global financial recession? Probably it is!
According to the Los Angeles Times, the mansion backs on to the Los Angeles Country Club and also shares a lot line with the official Playboy mansion next door, where Hefner is still known to saunter the nights away dressed in his famous pajamas.
Hefner, 82,bought the 700-sq-meter mansion for a reported $6.7 million for his Playmate wife Kimberley, in 1998. After the couple split in 1999, Kimberley remained in the house where she raised their two sons. Now their sons are off to college.
The palatial spread features five bedrooms and seven bathrooms, a two-storey entrance hall, a large living room with one of the home's three fireplaces, a library with a second fireplace, a family room that adjoins the dining room and an eat-in kitchen - and a massive expanse of lawn.
