The Playboy Mansion has been sold to what might seem to be an unlikely buyer. USA Today reports that owner Playboy Enterprises has entered into a contract with the estate’s next-door neighbor.
“Daren Metropoulos, principal at private equity firm Metropoulos & Co., which owns Twinkies-maker Hostess Brands, plans to buy the 20,000-square-foot house in Holmby Hills, a Los Angeles neighborhood near Beverly Hills,” the story reports. “Metropoulos has agreed to let [Hugh] Hefner, 90, live in it for the rest of his life.”
The sale price was not disclosed, but the property was listed at $200 million.
