On the market: All this - and a pizza oven, too

The kitchen of this Plymouth Meeting home includes a custom pizza oven.

When we saw the array of lucrative listing terms released by Zillow, we were not surprised to see features like steam showersheated floors and professional appliances on the list. One term stood out, though, and made us wonder exactly how many properties on the market in the Philadelphia area had “pizza ovens.” Lo and behold, at least three. They put a whole new spin on “personal pan pizza.”

349 Stenton Ave., Plymouth Meeting
Monthly taxes: $1,174
Tell me all about it: This four-bedroom Plymouth Meeting home features a built-in pizza oven in the gourmet kitchen (around the corner, of course, from the Sub-Zero fridge). The property also boasts a lovely pool and spa area with private cabana. It’s not listed explicitly, but it sure looks as if one of the four full bathrooms includes a fully enclosed (steam) shower.

15 Villa Drive, Ambler 
Monthly taxes: $1,171 
Tell me all about it: This property ticks a lot of the boxes for high-end finishes. The five-bedroom property boasts custom Brazilian hardwood floors, marble vanities and a sunken Jacuzzi in the master bath, and an outdoor entertainment center you have to see to believe. Owners have named the outdoor area Villa Bistro, and its centerpiece is an imported pizza oven. The rest of the outdoor kitchen includes granite countertops and a built-in gas grill. The terrace seats 20 and includes a custom fire pit as well as a 12-person hot tub. Bonus: The treehouse on the grounds includes HVAC, wi-fi and cable TV.

624 Morris Ave., Bryn Mawr 
Monthly taxes: $2,577 
Tell me all about it: The Bryn Mawr home named Willow Bank actually ticks off two of Zillow’s lucrative listing term boxes. The seven-bedroom home boasts an eat-in kitchen with Sub-Zero refrigerator, as well as a wood-burning pizza oven. We love the master suite in this home as well, which includes an en-suite bath as well as a fireplace and private patio.
