Although the exact price hasn't been confirmed, the president of Hilton & Hyland, the agency charged with the sale of the mansion, did tell the Wall Street Journal the price was "nine digits," and "would set a record for the highest-priced residential sale in Los Angeles." In short, that's a lot of PBR and Twinkies.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Daren Metropoulos bought the mansion not for its reputation as a party haven, but because of its history and architectural prestige. Fun fact: The Playboy mansion was designed by famed LA architect Arthur Rolland Kelly.
Speaking of his purchase, Metropoulos said, "The heritage of this property transcends its celebrity, and to have the opportunity to serve as its steward would be a true privilege.”
