Home with ’50 shades’ room goes viral when it goes on sale

Viral News

PHILADELPHIA, Penn. (WCMH/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’s a beautiful suburban home that’s up for grabs for $750,000. It has four bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms. 

But the home’s unique feature comes with some mixed reaction.

“Beautiful kitchen, beautiful family room, nice secluded lot. But then you come into the basement and there’s this little private playground,” realtor Melissa Leonard told KYW-TV

You could also call it a sexual oasis.

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. 

That’s also just about how quickly at least two real estate sites took down the listing.

“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 was inappropriate so they took down some of my pictures and redid the write-up,” said Leonard.

“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,” she told KYW-TV.

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.

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