Hugh Hefner's widow has listed the $7.2m Hollywood mansion he bought for her.

Crystal Hefner has put the Hollywood Hills home left to her by the Playboy magazine founder - who passed away in September aged 91 after suffering a cardiac arrest - on the market, five years after the late businessman splashed out $5 million on the abode.

According to the New York Post's Page Six column, the 31-year-old model recently listed the four-bedroom plush pad for sale after Hugh bought it for Crystal in 2013 while the pair were living at the Playboy Mansion together to ensure she would be looked after he died.

The property features floor-to-ceiling windows in the majority of rooms as well as a designer kitchen, which has a stainless steel backsplash.

Potential purchasers who love to enjoy a nice relaxing shower may well be won over by the home because the steam washing area in the master suite features nine shower heads, while there is also a sizeable bathtub fit for a relaxing soak.

What's more, the house has a floating staircase and fitness fanatics will be pleased to see there is an exercise room.

It could be an ideal place to live for a Hollywood movie star because the abode comes with a luxury home theatre - wonderful for watching his or her acting talents back - as well as a library and games room, perfect for precious downtime from learning scripts.

Last week, the former Playmate of the Month - who has kept busy with charity work around the world recently - admitted she misses Hugh ''every day''.

She said: ''I miss him every day. He taught me a lot. He taught me love. He taught me kindness.

''He was so kind to everybody, so welcoming to everybody into his home, it didn't matter who you were.''

Crystal no longer feels the need to be ''dolled up'' so much nowadays because that was an image she used when she was a Playboy Playmate.

She said: ''I've never been the heel and dress and full make-up, I've never been that kind of person.

''Maybe I felt like I had to be in the role I was in, being Playmate or being a part of Playboy, that I had to be dolled up.

''I think now I am more myself, which is the more down-to-earth, minimal makeup, that is where I feel the most comfortable.''
