The Playboy Bunny house (right across the street from Hugh Hefner’s infamous Tudor-style home) is for sale!
I used to watch The Girls Next Door just because I loved this mid-century house so much – well, okay… Holly, Kendra, Bridget and Hef were a kick too. As the E! channel reality show portrayed, this house was essentially used as a guest house for Playboy Bunnies-in-training.
This was the house where, up until recently, aspiring Playboy models stayed while visiting LA for their photo shoots. The mid-century rancher in the posh Holmby Hills neighborhood has hosted many a centerfold in its heyday.
Right after they were married in May of 1967, Elvis and Priscilla Presley retreated to this funky mid-century modern home tucked away in Palm Springs, California.
Elvis had rented it out a few months prior to the wedding and the couple had actually planned to be married on the grounds of the house until a gossip columnist blew their cover. They were then forced to go to Plan B - getting hitched in Las Vegas.
Later on the same day that they were wed, the couple flew back to their Palm Springs hideaway and Elvis carried Priscilla over the threshold into their new home.
Exactly nine months later TO THE DAY, their daughter Lisa-Marie was born.
Did I ever tell you that I lived in Vancouver, Canada for 4 years? Well it’s true – I did my undergraduate degree at the University of British Columbia – and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Even back in the 1990′s I was a budding house-peeper and I spent endless hours wandering around the city gawking at the amazing west coast architecture (which encompasses an eclectic mix of thatched roofed bungalows, century old character homes, and Asian-inspired new-builds).
Occasionally, I get sentimental and go on-line house-hunting in and around Vancouver.
Recently I found this dazzling 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom home for sale in West Vancouver for $2,690,000…
If you live in BC then you know that “West Van” means $$$.
So $2.6 million is a bargain price in that area – especially for a 4,500 square foot home on a large corner lot.
