Originally built in 1927 and bought by Playboy in 1971, the mansion instantly became something of a legend thanks to the lavish, sometimes debaucherous parties that Hefner would host there.

The mansion has 22 rooms, including a wine cellar with a Prohibition-era secret door, a screening room complete with a working pipe organ, a massive game room, and even a freaking miniature ZOO!

Of course, it's not as glamorous as you might think either. In her 2010 memoir of being married to Hefner, Isabella St. James mentions that the house is in various states of disrepair, with mismatched furniture and accommodations that are falling apart.

The details around the purchase are pretty interesting...
