It's not just chicken cookbooks and Seattle condo towers looking to make a buck off the smash-hit erotic fiction series Fifty Shades of Grey: now there's a totally random Houston property that's doing the same thing. Listed for $379,900, the 1,700-square-foot two-bedroom home was built in 1981 and has 20-foot ceilings, "cedar wood accents," and "amazing ornate custom railings," according to the brokerbabble, which also drives home the point that "this is not your cookie cutter townhome." Perhaps that's because the master bedroom just happens to come with wine bottles and glasses, a spiffy white tie, and a copy of the E.L. James novel? Ladies, the place has been on the market for two days—let's make a move.
