It was announced on Monday that the Playboy Mansion is now in contract to sell to its next door neighbour — Daren Metropoulos.
While most people associate the Playboy Mansion with scantily clad playmates and sex-fuelled debauchery, it served as the childhood home for Hugh Hefner’s sons.
Now 24, Hefner’s youngest son, Cooper, recounts his childhood spent in what many consider to be a sort of adult fantasyland. For Cooper, it was quite the opposite: a child’s wonderland fuelled by Indiana Jones-inspired adventures in the Grotto, a zoo full of exotic animals, and epic games of hide-and-seek played in the mansion’s private forest of redwood trees.
Cooper shared his experiences growing up inside the mansion, and invited Business Insider along on a private tour of the grounds.
