Sold! New Playboy Mansion owner closes deal for $100 million

(AP) -
The deal is done, and the Playboy Mansion has a new owner.
   Daren Metropoulos, who lives next door, said Tuesday that escrow has closed on his $100 million purchase of Hugh Hefner's man cave.
   The 33-year-old principal in the investment firm Metropoulos & Co. won't necessarily be moving in any time soon.
   Under terms of the deal, Playboy's 90-year-old founder may stay there for the rest of his life.
   After Hefner leaves, Metropoulos plans to connect the 5-acre Playboy estate to his 2-acre digs next door.
   The homes, built in the 1920s, were originally one estate.
   Hefner bought the Playboy Mansion for $1.05 million in 1971, quickly turning it into a playground.
   In its heyday it was the scene of countless celebrity-filled parties and innumerable tales of shenanigans.
