SoPhilly Spotlight: Pennsport ‘Mini Mansion’ edition

Since it was Two Street’s time to shine this week, we figured a Pennsport  SoPhilly Spotlight  was in order, hence 226 Ellsworth St. It’s not much to look at from the outside, but man, is it ever huge – a “mini mansion,” says the Craigslist ad.

The home has 4 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms in 2,800 square feet, plus room for either two parking spots or a yard. That would be nice. But oh, did we mention? It’s going for $599,000.

From the listing:

Here is your chance to own a mini mansion. This beautifully built out of the ground house is yours for the taking. Custom built with master suite the size of a small house including a Jacuzzi tub, walk in shower, double vanity with granite top, with two huge walk in closets and an outside deck.

The second floor features three large bedrooms and a second tile bath. The first floor includes a very large living room with a fireplace, lots of natural light from the many windows, recessed lighting to complement the high ceilings. The dining room features a hanging light fixture with lots of room for a large table. The kitchen is huge with light cabinets which are 42 inches high for plenty of storage, state of the art granite counters and stainless steel appliances with a tile floor.

Glass sliding doors which lead to a possible paring space for two or a large yard you decide. Finished basement that’s ready to host a large party with tile floors and a high ceiling plenty of storage closets and a powder room.

Seems pretty cookie cutter for such a high price, no?

    All of the tile stand out as unfortunate. I can’t believe south Philly is garnering such high prices. It seems like VERY wishful thinking.

    How is it “custom built” if it’s for sale to the general public?
