LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Playboy Mansion is up for sale but longtime resident Hugh Hefner wants to stay put.

The West Los Angeles estate, the backdrop of many film shoots and wild parties, was listed on Monday for $200 million.

Playboy Enterprises says the 5-acre property features 29 rooms, a home theater, wine cellar and a swimming pool with a cave-like grotto where Playboy bunnies partied with celebrities. The mansion also comes with a rare zoo license.

As a condition of the sale, Playboy founder Hefner would get to continue living there as he has since the company bought the mansion 45 years ago for just over $1 million.

Playboy CEO Scott Flanders says the sale would help the company “reinvest in the transformation of our business” while allowing Hefner to continue living there.
