Private Property South Africa

Here's what a few mansions would sell for, if they went on the market.

The news that the Playboy mansion went on the market for a cool $200m made headlines around the world, but the downside was that current owner, Hugh Hefner is included in the deal. The good news – if you happen to be in the market – is that there are other equally, if not more impressive, properties on the market, and some for a lesser price.

This Los Angeles property has its own Wikipedia page. The home – with 123 rooms – was built by the late television producer Aaron Spelling. It was then sold to Petra Stunt, daughter of Formula 1 billionaire Bernie Ecclestone, for $85m in 2011.
