Here’s your chance to hang out in the infamous grotto (and have Hugh Hefner as a roommate).
Looking for somewhere to put that $1-billion-plus Powerball win?
A slice could go to buying the Playboy Mansion, which just hit the market for $200 million, according to a press release from Playboy Enterprises, which owns the home. The estate will be the most expensive home for sale in the country.
You wouldn’t have the place to yourself, though: Hugh Hefner, a known lover of group activities, plans to stay on the estate that’s been his playground for more than four decades.
“The Playboy Mansion has been a creative center for Hef as his residence and workplace for the past 40 years, as it will continue to be if the property is sold,” said Scott Flanders, CEO of Playboy Enterprises.
The estate was purchased in 1970 for $1 million — reportedly the highest price paid for a home in Los Angeles at that time.
The nearly 20,000-square-foot mansion, which sits on five acres in Los Angeles’ Holmby Hills, is the ultimate entertainment paradise, with a cave-like grotto that’s known around the world for the people who have partied in it.
There’s also a catering kitchen, wine cellar, home theater, game house, gym, tennis court and pool.

4 Simple Ways to Invest in Real Estate BY ANDREW BEATTIE&nbs
"I cannot write enough about Marilyn. She made my husband and my buying experience so easy and fun. She is exceptionally patient, never rushing us despite my husband and I having two totally different tastes. She works over the top to try to show us the houses that we would be interested in and always listening to our thoughts. She is such a hard worker; she even closed on my house the same week she gave birth to her adorable baby. I would recommend Marilyn to anyone looking for a new home without hesitation."
