Joy Mangano, the 66-year-old inventor known for her self-wringing Miracle Mop and velvet Huggable Hangers, has put her St. James mansion on the market.
Known as Swan Manor, the massive home at 1 Swan Pl. is 22,000 square feet and situated on a private, 9-acre plot of land with views of the Long Island Sound. According to a Wall Street Journal article, Mangano has owned the property since 2000. She spent millions of dollars renovating the mansion, which remains pristine and spotless inside and out. It was originally built in 1917.
The article also mentions that the home’s closets gave inspiration for Mangano’s famous Huggable Hangers. The famous inventor has sold about $3 billion worth of products on television. Movie star Jennifer Lawrence played the role of Mangano in a 2015 film based on her life.
Swan Manor has three structures and a total of 14 bedrooms, 14 full bathrooms, and one half bathroom. The main house has oversized bedrooms, a library room, a home office, a two-level kitchen, a dining room, a gym, walk-in closets, fireplaces, guest quarters, and more.
