Home listing near Philadelphia with “50 Shades” room goes viral


MAPLE GLEN, Pa. (CNN) — A home up for sale in the Philadelphia area is raising eyebrows — with a listing that brings to mind a popular erotic novel and movie.

It looks like a normal suburban home, but this house has some very unique features that has caused it to go viral in less than 24 hours.

This four bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom house can be all yours for $750,000. But this home’s unique features – comes with some mixed reaction.

Realtor Melissa Leonard says, “Beautiful kitchen, beautiful family room, nice secluded lot, but then you come into the basement and there’s this little private playground.”

You could also call it a sexual oasis.

That’s what the realtor, Melissa Leonard, dubbed the home located at 1612 Norristown Road online.

Leonard is hoping to sell the fully-furnished home that includes an adult playground in the basement.

But after listing the home online – it went viral in just a matter of hours.

“We upload our pictures to Bright MLS, which is multiple listing services and they have decided the pictures of the basement and some of the write up were inappropriate, so they took down some of my pictures and redid the write up,” said Leonard. 

And as quickly as the listing went viral is just how quickly at least two real estate sites took down the listing.

“I think that it should be portrayed the way it is. I think that someone calling and not seeing it the way it is is not understanding and I don’t want someone to come here and be upset by it,” said Leonard. 

Keep in mind the basement can be converted back – if the adult den doesn’t tickle your fancy. But the realtor says you’ll need to act fast.

Leonard said, “We’ve had probably six showings today and we have about 15 for the weekend.”
