TAMPA — Miracle Mop inventor and infomercial star Joy Mangano has listed her Culbreath Isles home for $2.225 million.
The 7,116-square-foot home at 4930 New Providence Avenue was built in 1988 by Culbreath Isles neighborhood founder Joe Byars for his family. It includes five bedrooms, five and a half bathrooms, two fireplaces, a third floor bonus room with wet bar, crown molding throughout, a pool, spa and travertine patio. Tampa Realtors Mike Hughes and Jeff Shelton are handling the listing.
Mangano spent two decades at the HSN television shopping network, where she was known as the “Queen of HSN.” In 2015, her rise from single mom to millionaire was the basis for the film Joy starring Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro, Diane Ladd, Susan Lucci, and Isabella Rosselini.
A Long Island housewife-turned-entrepreneur, she started her career on rival network QVC before selling her highly successful company, Ingenious Designs, to HSN in 1999. Her fame was built on her invention of the self-wringing Miracle Mop, followed up by the Huggable Hanger, which broke records, with more than 800 million units sold, and My Little Steamer.
