The buyer has agreed to allow the 90 year-old media mogul to remain in the property until he dies.

Daren, whose father is billionaire C. Dean Metropoulos, is said to have also bought the home next door to the Playboy mansion in Los Angeles for $18 million in 2009.

The property has 22 rooms including a wine cellar, a screening room, a games room, a tennis and basketball court, a waterfall and a swimming pool area.

It also houses the Playboy magazine offices in a separate wing.
