mini mansion
This mini mansion is listed for sale in Long Beach.

An early 20th century mini-mansion is listed for sale on the corner of Magnolia Boulevard and W. Penn Street — at 159 Magnolia Blvd. — in Long Beach.

Built in 1908, the terracotta brick home recently had its orange, terracotta roof restored. The property is just two blocks away from the Long Beach boardwalk and close to the city’s most popular destinations, including restaurants and parks.

The home’s “majesty of old world charm,” as the listing states, comes from its stunning details: hardwood floors, rich, dark wood kitchen cabinets, high ceilings and elegant moldings. Another lovely touch: a yellow-and-orange, stained-glass skylight accents the second-floor above the staircase.

One can’t help but feel this home was made for hosting. The large kitchen has ample counter space, including an island with two high top seats and all granite and marble countertops. Plus, the Liebherr refrigerator has its own water filtration system.

A wide corridor opens up to the dining room, which is naturally lit with a tall window. There are also several living spaces on the ground floor with plenty of room for seating and four fireplaces — all perfect for entertaining or just cozying up in the winter.

The house has five bedrooms, three bathrooms and a half bathroom, including the master bathroom, two garage spaces and a 2,200 square-foot basement. Ocean views are visible from the master bedroom.

The asking price is $1,700,000, not including the annual property tax of $21,800.

The real estate agent listed for the property is Andrea Tafuri, of Douglas Elliman Real Estate, and can be reached at 516-432-3400.
