MAPLE GLEN, PA (KYW/CNN) - A home 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 unusual features that drew comparisons to “50 Shades of Grey” and caused its listing to go viral in less than 24 hours. The fully furnished residence comes complete with an “adult playground” in the basement.
The four-bedroom, 2 1/2-bathroom "50 Shades of Maple Glen" house can be yours for $750,000.
"Beautiful kitchen, Beautiful family room, nice secluded lot but then you come into the basement, and there's this little private playground," said Melissa Leonard, Realtor.
Leonard dubbed the Norristown Road home a "sexual oasis."
"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," she said, "so they took down some of my pictures and redid the write-up."
As quickly as the listing went viral is how quickly at least two real estate sites took down the listing.
"I think that it should be portrayed the way it is," Leonard said. "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."
Potential buyers: 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," Leonard said.
