    Playboy founder Hugh Hefner has just dropped almost $5 million on an incredible mansion for his 27-year-old wife Crystal Harris. The 87-year-old Hefner is setting his young bride up for life, should he go to party in the big grotto in the sky in the near future.

    The home in the Hollywood Hills closed on April 18, 2013 for $4,995,000. Sleek and gorgeous, the home has 4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and is 5,917 square feet. While it’s no sprawling Playboy Mansion, Harris’ future home is a gated architectural home on an exclusive cul-de-sac. Inside, all the finest materials were used to craft a high tech smart home with an open, contemporary feel.

    Outside, a white glass infinity pool and spa and stone walls create a serene escape in the middle of the Hollywood Hills.

    According to TMZ, the couple is happily living at the Playboy Mansion, and they have no plans to move.  In fact, Hef and Harris are actually renters! Hugh doesn’t personally own the Playboy Mansion … it’s owned by Playboy Enterprises.

    Now, the duo have an escape from the constant madness that is the day-to-day at the Playboy Mansion and Harris has a place to call home forever.

      If you’ve recently caught NBC’s new Monday night series “The Playboy Club” you might have fallen in love with the lavish, sexy and mischievous ambiance that encompassed Chicago’s hottest nightclub in the 1960’s. The show, which centers on the first ever Playboy Club in the U.S., gives us a peak at the exclusive fun and furry Playboy bunnies that only those lucky “keyholders” could relish in.

      However, anyone who’s anyone must know the fun definitely did not start or stop at The Playboy Club. In those days, only a few privileged socialites were invited to the real party, just a hop, skip and a jump away at Hugh Hefner’s home – the original Playboy Mansion. While Hef’s current home in the Holmby Hills area of Los Angeles is known as “The Playboy Mansion,” there was another infamous home of his that came before.

      While you’ll have to use your imagination when it comes to what actually went on within the walls of this notorious building, you now have your chance to actually own and live within the memories of the once-famous abode. More than a decade after Mr. Hefner left Chicago for Los Angeles, this 72-room brick building was renovated and converted into luxury condominiums. Flash forward to 2011, a full-floor, 7,874 square foot condo is for sale for $6,700,000.

      The 4-bedroom, 5-bath single-family residence comes with lavish rooms of generous proportion with 4 fireplaces throughout, an elevator opening up to the foyer, an attached terrace and exquisite gourmet kitchen. The living room was originally the mansion’s 52 x 27, 20-foot high celiling ballroom and still contains the building’s original paneling.

      Now, if only walls could talk! Plush smoking jacket not included.
