Hugh Hefner sells house for $18 million


Hugh Hefner's Holmby Hills home for sale

Hefner and his wife, Kimberley Conrad Hefner, sold their personal residence next to the Playboy Mansion in L.A.’s Holmby Hills. They wanted $28 million for it when they listed it in early March, but it sold for $18 million.

The two have lived in adjacent mansions since they separated in 1999. The 7,300-square-foot English Manor-style house that Kimberley lived in was built in 1929. With five bedrooms and seven bathrooms it sits on 2.3 acres that back up to the Los Angeles Country Club.

Amenities include his-and-her powder rooms, a media room with a film projector and built-in screen that drops from the ceiling, hand-painted walls, a hand-carved staircase, a three-car garage and, of course, a pool.

There’s also a door in the wall separating the home from the Playboy Mansion. The house was designed for the sister of the first owner of the Playboy Mansion.

Don’t know who bought the house or whether the key to that door in the wall was included.
