In case you’ve been living in a cave, or basement…
From the Star Ledger:
We’re not recommending you leave the Garden State, but if you’re looking to stay close by and you happen to have a fascination with some of the things that go on in “Fifty Shades of Grey,” a recent real estate listing in the Philadelphia suburb of Maple Glen could be the right fit.
From the outside, the big brick Colonial looks like it fits in with many upscale suburban neighborhoods. But the listing has gone viral since it was posted Thursday afternoon — because of one not-so-common feature.
The house has a fully furnished pleasure room, straight out of the popular series of erotic romance novels and movies.
Realtor Melissa Leonard has been fielding media requests and angry neighbors since the listing was posted. But she had no hesitations in taking on the project, she told Slate. She has since dubbed the house “50 Shades of Maple Glen.”
“I saw the first two of the movies. I only read maybe a couple of chapters of the book. That was the first thing that came to mind when I saw it: This guy has ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ going on his basement!” Leonard told Slate. “But I know that it’s a way of life for people. Philly has clubs for this. I go out, I know about nightlife, they nickname me Philly Socialite on Instagram, so I go out all the time. Nothing bothered me.”
If you’re interested, the asking price for the home is $750,000. And once it’s yours, you can do whatever you want to the basement.
