It's actually a decent investment.

Hef will be dead soon and the guy will make his money back within 5 years by turning it into some kind of historical/amusement site.

Great to see a fine businessman rewarded for not allowing Twinkies unions to run a fine corp into the ground.

He probably has to pay another couple of million to have it disinfected.

Kid already owns a home next door so he is essentially expanding his current block interest. He purchased his current home from Hef years ago. My guess is the playboy mansion will be irrelevant to future generations and a punchline of many Bill Cosby/Charlie Sheen jokes. Remember Playboy doesn't even print nude pictures in their magazines anymore!

And we know they will bargain reasonably having seen what happened to 18,000 ex Twinkie-nistas.

curious, Hef sells it but wants to live there? So basically he has just hauled in more money and lost nothing.
Or gave up residence. The new owner gets to pay all taxes and cost of renovation. how is that even a fair deal?

Possibly the new owner knows more about Hef's health than we do. With the description of the place no wonder during Girls Next Door they never showed the mansion........it was the only reason I watched the show, hoping to get a glimpse of more than the Hef's boring bedroom.......disappointed to hear it's stale and gloomy!
