Hugh Hefner Sells $18 Million Holmby Hills Home

Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner is letting go and moving on, or so it seems like it. He and his wife Kimberley Conrad Hefner have finally sold their personal residence, which is located next door to the infamous Playboy mansion. Their Los Angeles Holmby Hills house was bought for $18 million dollars, but the identity of the lucky customer hasn't been revealed.

Even though he didn't exactly auction off the Playboy mansion and its Girls Next Door, he had already listed this home as up for grabs in March. It was initially priced at around $28 million, but the two finally conceded the lower fee.

Since Hugh and Kimberley's separation in 1999, they've lived in the adjacent mansions. This 7,300-square-foot English Manor-style house that was sold was built in 1929, with five bedrooms and seven bathrooms. It also has private gates in front of it, as well as being near the Los Angeles Country Club.

In addition to those, the Holmby Hills mansion also has several notable amenities. These include the his-and-her powder rooms, and the well-known media room which houses Hef's film projector and built-in screen that drops from the ceiling. There's also a hand-carved staircase and a garage suited for three cars. Of course, the mansion wouldn't be complete without a swimming pool.

It was in 1996 that the Hefners bought the property, without revealing the sum. Since then, however, it was listed at $17.25 million under Joyce Rey and Stacy Gottula of Coldwell Banker Previews International, Beverly Hills.

Apparently, the home also has a door leading to its neighboring Playboy mansion. Anyone who has the key to it will be able to sneak in and party with The Girls Next Door, but it hasn't been revealed if Hef willingly gave up that privilege. Perhaps he isn't really that ready to surrender the key to his success.
