An exquisite unit in Hugh Hefner‘s original Playboy Mansion has just been placed on the market for $2.99 million. The Chicago native—who bought the brick and limestone building in 1959—donated it to the School of the Art Institute of Chicago to be used for dormitories when he moved to California and built a new Playboy Mansion, and the ’90s, the old edifice was gutted and converted into four lavish condos.
The 3,250-square-foot luxury residence features three bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths, a library, and a large living and dining room with a butler’s pantry.
The stunning abode contains hardwood floors and high-end finishes, with a well-thought-out floor plan placing the living and entertaining areas in the front, and sleeping areas toward the rear.
The well-appointed eat-in kitchen—which opens up to a lovely outdoor patio—features custom Grabill Cabinetry, a double oven, sub-zero refrigerator, bar refrigerator, and wine cooler/refrigerator.
