The buyer was identified as Hefner’s next-door neighbor Daren Metropoulos, who reportedly purchased his current resident from Hefner for around $18 million in 2009.

Following Hefner’s tenancy, Metropoulos plans to connect the estate with his current home to make a roughly 7-acre compound, according to The Journal.
Officially dubbed by Hefner as Playboy Mansion West, the 5-acre property features a game house, home theater, wine cellar and the famous swimming pool with a cave-like grotto where Playboy bunnies partied with celebrities. The mansion also comes with a rare zoo license.MORE NEWS: Flower Shortage Drives Up Costs This Mother's Day
