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.

This 1952 home is notable for the way it was decorated in mid-century vintage items and Playboy memorabilia. You can still see some of the furnishings in the listing photos.

The 5 bedroom, 7 bathroom house is listed for $11,000,000.

The property is actually owned by legendary Playboy founder and publisher Hugh Hefner. According to Curbed.com, Hefner purchased the home in 2001 for $4.5 million.

No word on why he is selling now and ending this house’s fun run as a Bunny crash pad.

The listing does state:

Property sold as is, no repairs. See private remarks

Hmmmm….. I wonder what the story is?

    I would like to inspect this one :)

    Love the setting the house sits in via the last photo. I am thinking the Playboy Bunny Ladies-In-Waiting trashed the place in their off-time so property is sold as-is. Cool post!

    It wouldn’t be so bad if all that carpeting was removed. It doesn’t make sense to have all that carpeting for such a huge space and presumably lots of socializing going on there.
