A Gold Coast mansion that’s hosted four Playboy photo spreads is on the market for $4.9 million.

Tech executive Gian Fulgoni and his wife, Sarinda, owners of the 7,000-square-foot home at 65 East Bellevue Place, since 1986, have listed it.

The home was finished by Chicago-based Richar Interiors, whose work has been featured in Architectural Digest and Metropolitan Home in addition to the late Hugh Hefner’s famous men’s mag, according to Crain’s.

The home, built in the early 1900s, has a glassy third-floor addition tucked behind its triangular top and interiors that include slabs of polished stone for fireplace walls and some floors, textured wall coverings, a mirrored ceiling in the master bedroom and multiple mirrors in the master bedroom.

“It’s sexy,” said Duane Shumaker, the Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty agent listing the house.

Gian Fulgoni said he thinks the home has a comfortable yet elegant-feeling. Fulgoni co-founded audience measurement firm ComScore in 1999. He retired as CEO early this year and is now chairman emeritus of the Virginia-based firm.

The home is among a number of pricey recent listings and sales in the Gold Coast, including two mansions on State Street listed for north of $10 million last month.

One block over, TV actor Alexandra Meneses and her ex-husband, hedge fund manager John Simpson, sold their 6,800-square-foot Gold Coast greystone in June for $6.58 million.

In May, the nearby Queen Anne-style Thompson Mansion became the city’s second-highest residential listing when it hit the market for $21.9 million.

The Thompson Mansion is around the corner from JDL Development’s No. 9 Walton, which has dominated the list of most expensive home sales in recent months.
