Has your exercise routine gotten boring?

Are you in search of something to add some spice and excitement to your workout? Or your love life, perhaps?

You and the partner of your choice will definitely appreciate this dignified, elegant Colonial on a quiet lane with only two neighbors in Maple Glen, just outside Ambler, then.

It has plenty of style, tasteful fittings and a nicely equipped gym in its basement. It also has a playroom like none we’ve encountered since we started featuring houses for sale.

But before we get to that basement, let’s take a look at the rest of the house, shall we?

Behind the kitchen is a breakfast room with French doors that lead to the multilevel deck in the backyard. There’s also an arbor in back that you can grow vines on if you wish.

Master bedroom

On the second floor you will find four bedrooms. The master suite is nicely appointed, with a fireplace, a step-down office with window seats, and two large walk-in closets. The third floor is currently an unfinished attic.

You might note, however, that this house is listed as a five-bedroom property. Which takes us to that basement.

In addition to the home gym, the basement has been outfitted so that you and your (partner/spouse/guest/friend) can enjoy a fun and exciting evening of BDSM play.

You’ll find all the furniture and equipment you need to tie up your intended and have your way: stocks in the four-poster bed, a rack, whips, chains, the whole nine yards.

Remember, we said this house comes furnished. Which opens up a business opportunity for you as well, if you’re game for it.

“The owner currently rents it out on Airbnb for $750 a night during the week and $2000 a night on weekends,” says Melissa Leonard of Coldwell Banker Preferred, the listing agent for this house. “He just started this and has made $5,000 in his first month. He’s getting constant bookings, and he even was hired to film a rap video there.”

Sound like something you could use to help pay the mortgage? It’s all there for you. All you need to do is sign the contract of sale, turn the key, walk in, and check your email.

But if you’re the squeamish type, Leonard assures you that this space “can be converted back to a typical suburban basement.”
