Have you heard the news? A large, full-floor condo in the original Playboy Mansion came back on the market this month. The lavish, 7,874-square-foot condo has four bedrooms, five baths. So what makes the unit so special? "It's just very light and bright, and has grand ceiling heights," listing agent Katherine Chez Malkin tells Curbed. The ceiling heights are over 20 feet in the living room, which was originally a ballroom. Because of its size, Malkin says it's a unit that will likely appeal to a buyer who would otherwise select a single-family home. In 1989, Hugh Hefner donated the mansion to Art Institute, and in 1993 it was sold to developer Bruce Abrams, who converted it to condos. The seller, philanthropist Abby McCormick O'Neil, bought the place for $2.1 million in 1994, according to the Tribune. It's now listed for a whopping $6.7 million.
