Hugh Hefner is said to be ready to sell the iconic mansion, but will continue to live on the estate.
The Playboy Mansion is reportedly set to go up for sale, with a $200 million asking price. According to TMZ, the mansion will go up for sale within the next month, but experts are saying that the hefty asking price is unrealistic and the real sales figure is likely to be less than half that amount.

'I said, 'Hef just called, he wants me to do the last cover of Playboy,' and he goes, 'Mom you've got to do it,'' she told Entertainment Tonight. She added that he insisted they were no longer embarrassed about their mother's past.

Mark Hatten, a former boyfriend of Anna-Nicole Smith, has admitted in letters to the deceased Playboy model's mother that he fears a sex tape the pair made has been "lost or stolen".
The former model's ex-boyfriend wrote in letters to Virgie Arthur, Anna-Nicole's estranged mother, that he feared the tape, which allegedly features "expicit material", was taken in a raid on the deceased celebrity's home in the Bahamas.
Hatten is currently serving a jail sentence for making threats against the former Playboy playmate and beating up her neighbour. He claims in other letters to Anna-Nicole's mother that he could be the father of her baby daughter Dannielynn.
Correspondence between the two began when Virgie Arthur asked Hatten to share memories of his time with Anna-Nicole.
In his latest letter, obtained by TMZ.com, Hatten says the tape "must be destroyed", adding that Anna-Nicole was "against [hardcore] pornography", despite featuring in three softcore Playboy videos in her time.
Her most recent partner, Howard K Stern, confirmed that several items had been taken in the Bahamas raid, including some "of a personal nature".
