Original Chicago Playboy Mansion Asks $12.5M

Feast your eyes on this magnificent home, located at 1336 N. State Parkway.

Elegant and historic, this 9000 square foot Georgian home is a treasure of the Gold Coast and currently for sale. Originally built in 1897, the home was later purchased by Hugh Hefner in 1959 and became known as the “Playboy Mansion,” until the property was acquired by the School of the Art Institute in 1974 and bisected into residential units, college dormitories, and eventually luxury condos.

Now on the market, the 5-bedroom home at 1336 N. State has been lovingly renovated with the finest of materials and reimagined for the sophisticated buyer, who enjoys both beauty and functionality. “Experience the ease, grace, and grandeur of this spectacular home, saturated with light,” says the listing agent, Katherine Malkin. Scroll below for current-day photos, as well as a video tour from Hugh Hefner himself.
