    Have you ever dreamt of owning the Playboy mansion? If you have around $200 million to spare, you can have a chance to buy Los Angeles’ most famous estate.

    But before you reach into your secret Swiss accounts, be advised that the deal does not include any Playboy bunnies but does come with something that might change your mind: Hef himself.

    The deal includes a life estate for Playboy founder Hugh Hefner, meaning the octogenarian can continue to live in the mansion with you until his death.

    The current owner of the estate, Playboy Enterprises, is set to post the 6-acre home/party playhouse in real estate listings next month, according to TMZ. The owners are most probably banking on the site’s history and popularity, hence the outrageous appraisal.

    According to real estate estimates from those who are knowledgeable of the property, the almost 90-year-old Los Angeles mansion is already in a “tear-down” condition and at most could fetch from $80-90 million.

    Built in 1927, the 21,987-square-foot (2,042.7 m2) Gothic-Tudor style mansion consists of 29 rooms and sits on 5.3 acres.
