The sprawling 29-room Playboy Mansion was perhaps one of the most iconic properties in Los Angeles.
The fame of the famous Playboy mansion took a hit after Hugh Hefner's death in 2017 when allegations of drugs and sexual assaults at the property came to light. But what happened to the mansion?
The 21,987-square-foot home, built in 1927, was purchased by Hefner in 1971 for $1.1 million—about $7,452,740 today.
The property has a game room, screening room, wine cellar, tennis and basketball courts, swimming pool, waterfall, and the famous grotto - it even had its own 'zoo'.
But in her 2006 memoir Bunny Tales, Hefner's former partner Izabella St. James, stated that the mansion was in urgent need of renovation.
An investigation by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health located the bacteria that causes Legionnaires' disease in a hot tub. Nevertheless, Hefner lived there from 1974 until his death - in addition to living there, Hefner also used the mansion to house the editorial offices of Playboy magazine.
In 2016, a year before his death, Hefner put the mansion on the market for a staggering $200 million.
However, it fell short of its original asking price and was eventually sold to Greek-American Daren Metropoulos for half. Shortly after the sale, Mitropoulos told the Wall Street Journal.
In the wake of Hefner's death, it was reportedly ransacked by people looking to get their hands on a piece of pop culture history.
A neighbour told Globe magazine that the bedrooms - even Hefner's - were stripped of things like sex toys, gilded statues, used sheets and underwear.
