The Playboy Mansion may be sold to its neighbor.
The Wall Street Journal reported, citing a representative of the buyer, that the property is currently in contract to be sold, which a spokesman for Playboy confirmed. The Journal also said the buyer, Daren Metropoulos, originally bought the adjacent property from Hugh Hefner for $18 million in 2009.
The mansion was originally listed for $200 million in January by Mauricio Umansky of The Agency and Gary Gold and Drew Fenton of Hilton & Hyland. When the property was listed, it was reported that it would be sold as a "living estate," meaning the 90-year-old Hugh Hefner would continue to live at the mansion.
The real estate agents and Playboy Enterprises did not immediately respond to CNBC's requests for comment.
