The new owner of the iconic Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles, California is planning to expand the historic estate following the death of Hugh Hefner.

Son of billionaire investor and businessman Dean Metropoulos, Daren bought the famous home in August 2016 for a whopping $100million.
At the time, Metropoulos said he felt ‘fortunate and privileged’ to ‘own a one-of-a-kind piece of history and art,’ he said in a statement.

A stipulation in the purchase agreement between Hefner and Metropoulos was that the 91-year-old publishing mogul would be able to live at the Holmby Hills property for the rest of life.
