The Playboy Mansion has sold after being placed on the market earlier this year for $200 million. According to the L.A. Times, the legendary Holmby Hills estate where Hugh Hefner has lived for decades is under contract to sell for an undisclosed price. Despite the sale, Hefner, 90, will be allowed to live out the remainder of his life at the mansion.

The Wall Street Journal has identified the buyer as Daren Metropoulos, the son of billionaire investor C. Dean Metropoulos.

Built in 1927 for department store scion Arthur Letts Jr., the estate was designed by Arthur R. Kelly. Playboy later acquired the estate in 1971 for about $1.1 million. It sits on more than five acres and boasts 29 rooms including a wine cellar (with a Prohibition-era secret door), a screening room with built-in pipe organ, a game room, three zoo/aviary buildings, a tennis/basketball court, a waterfall and a swimming pool area, as well as the grotto.
