The Playboy Mansion | On the Market
Jan 25, 2016 // Lacey Baccich
THE OPPORTUNITY OF A LIFETIME IS HERE.
Not only can you own a 20,000 sq.ft. mansion, positioned on a breathtaking 5 acre parcel in L.A.’s coveted “Platinum Triangle”, but you’ll also own a piece of American history. For a mere $200 million the Playboy Mansion could be yours. Luxury Portfolio International members Hilton & Hyland announced last week that they acquired the Playboy Mansion listing under principal agents Drew Fenton and Gary Gold.
Now, one might ask, why is Slifer Smith & Frampton, a brokerage synonymous with Colorado mountain towns blogging about this? Well, the answer is easy. Both real estate brokerages (Slifer Smith & Frampton and Hilton & Hyland) are members of the exclusive Luxury Portfolio International. If this were Kevin Bacon’s “Six degrees of separation” Slifer Smith & Frampton only has 2 degrees of separation from the Playboy Mansion. Something we find fascinating.
The firms that make up Luxury Portfolio International are some of the most powerful independent brokerage firms and members of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World®. Of the 500 firms in LeadingRE, over 200 participate in this network.
Membership includes more than 200 real estate firms – 60 of which are from outside the United States. This international expansion spurred Luxury International Portfolio to become the only luxury real estate website that is translated into nine languages and displays property values in multiple currencies. Their attention to the international luxury real estate consumer has paid off: traffic to the site comes from over 200+ countries/territories per month.
