House with sexy basement ‘boom boom room’ starts bidding war

It’s no bargain basement.

But it’s certainly a seductive one.

A plain-looking suburban Pennsylvania house with a sexy lower-level lair its late owners dubbed the “Boom Boom Room” sparked a bidding war among interested buyers.

The three-bedroom split-level in Broomall, a Delaware County enclave about 25 miles west of Philadelphia, lured lots of lookie-loos after it hit the market in September for $325,000.

“I had 48 showings in 48 hours and got 13 offers over asking on the first day,” listing broker Jamie Kerezsi told The Post. “As people came through, they told me how they heard about the Boom Boom Room over the years. It was a local legend for a certain generation.”

A festive invention of party-hardy owners Nicholas and Marianne Angone, their speakeasy-style bar hosted area shindigs that became the stuff of local lore.

The Angones bought the 1,520-square-foot spread at 608 Warren Blvd. in 1968, according to Kerezsi, and outfitted the basement not long after. The centerpiece is a fully stocked five-stool bar upholstered in tufted black leather. A shag carpet, couches, faux palm trees with stuffed monkeys hanging from the branches and a taxidermied armadillo add to the merry mood. A sign hanging from the ceiling reads “Boom Boom Room” in all-caps.
