The listing describes it as a “one of a kind suburban home”, and they’re not wrong.

This five-bedroom Philadelphia home has a gym, games room, three bedrooms and is located in the “award-winning Upper Dublin school district”.

But wait until you see what’s in the basement.

Dubbed a ‘sex oasis’ the property at Maple Glen has been viewed more than 500,000 times on US real estate site, Redfin.

The home, which comes with a million-dollar price tag, features a sex-swing as well as other various sexual paraphernalia. The owners previously used the property as an AirBnb, listed under Maison XS.

The images of the basement have since been removed from the listing and the AirBnb listing has also been removed, but the Instagram promoting the property certainly paints a picture.


The listing’s realtor, Melissa Leonard described it as a “total suburban beautiful home”, to BuzzFeed News.

“But the twist is it has this sex oasis in the basement.”

Leonard laughed when she first saw the photos, after the seller called her saying he needed a “realtor who’s outside the box”, she told Slate.

“I called him and I’m like, “You’ve got this whole little sexual oasis.” So then I went over and looked at the house. I had a straight face. I said, “I can sell this. We can sell this.”

She said it’s a beautiful house in a great neighbourhood, and that the furnishings in the basement can be removed.

However, while speaking with Slate, Leonard was interrupted by an angry neighbour who claimed the listing’s pictures was resulting in notoriety for the area.

“We’re very upset about this whole thing. We do not want something like this in our neighbourhood. Take that off the internet. That’s disgusting. We don’t want that,” he said.

“You’ve got to take them down! We live next door and we don’t want this!” he continued, arguing people were only in the neighbourhood to “see the sex house”.

But according to Leonard, the house will most likely be sold to a suburban family because of the neighbourhood.

“And whoever buys it, whether that person’s into that or not, they’ll never know. They never knew until now, until they saw the listing! You know, they have to kind of mind their own business. Maybe you’re not into it, but they’re not hurting you.”
