The Playboy Mansion is perhaps the most famous home in the world that doesn’t house a world leader. Unless of course you consider the founder of Playboy, Hugh Hefner, to be a world leader, then it’s probably only 3rd to the White House and Buckingham Palace. Unless you’re a member of the Hollywood elite, chances are the Playboy Mansion is a bit of a mystery to you. That’s why our friends over at Supercompressor put together an amazing collection of Playboy Mansion trivia you’ve likely never heard before. To read the full post head on over HERE.

#1: John Lennon caused some serious damage.

During a drunken bender in the seventies (while he was separated from Yoko), he took one of Hef’s original Matisse paintings off the wall and put out a cigarette on it. He nearly got his ass kicked, but managed to patch things up. The painting — with cig burns and all — is still hanging there.

#2 Playboy bought it from a chessmaster who also designed spaceships.

Originally built in 1927, Playboy acquired it in 1971 for a little over $1 million from world-renowned chess player and engineer Louis D. Statham, whose inventions included measuring devices that helped keep NASA spacecrafts on course. Today, with some renovations and expansion, it’s estimated to be worth about $54 million.

#3 It has a twin.

Until 2009, Hef’s ex-wife Kimberley Conrad and their two children lived in the house next door, which is a mirror image of the Mansion layout, only smaller.
