Real Estate Player Could Move into the Original Chicago Playboy Mansion

Did you tune in last month to see the pilot episode of the new NBC show the Playboy Club? If you did, you certainly weren’t alone. Millions of people watched the first episode of the hit TV show, and most of them were drawn in by the show’s dreamy sets and the lavish interior of the club.

“However,” according to, “anyone who’s anyone must know the fun definitely did not start or stop at The Playboy Club. In those days, only a few privileged socialites were invited to the real party, just a hop, skip and a jump away at Hugh Hefner’s home – the original Playboy Mansion. While Hef’s current home in the Holmby Hills area of Los Angeles is known as “The Playboy Mansion,” there was another infamous home that came before.”

“While you’ll have to use your imagination when it comes to what actually went on within the walls of this infamous building, you now have your chance to actually own and live within the secrets and memories of the once-famous abode. More than a decade after Mr. Hefner left Chicago for Los Angeles, this 72-room brick building was renovated and converted into luxury condominiums. Flash forward to 2011, a full-floor, 7,874 square foot condo is for sale for $6,700,000.”

The condo, a four bedroom, five bathroom, modern masterpiece, features spacious rooms and luxury accommodations. Four fireplaces can be found scattered throughout the home, along with an elevator, an outdoor terrace, and a gourmet kitchen.

The living room of the condo was once the ballroom of the Playboy mansion, and it comes equipped with a twenty-foot high ceiling and the same paneling that Hugh Heffner and his playboy bunnies once appreciated.
