A mansion with a starring role is now on the market.
With her marriage to Joe Giudice over, the reality TV star is also moving on from their shared home.
The spread covers almost 10,000 square feet and sits on roughly 4 acres.
The massive mansion was completed in 2008. From the front entrance, with its black marble floors, and a double staircase with swirling railing designs, it’s evident that the luxury abode is an opulent and ornate showpiece.
Inside the walls of the 16-room house, plenty of drama has gone down.
Giudice has been a part of the “RHONJ” cast since the first season debuted in May 2009.
She is known for her hot temper, and is most notorious for flipping over a table at a restaurant during an argument on the first season of the show.
Teresa and Joe raised their four daughters in this house.
Both Joe and Teresa spent time away from their home, and behind bars, after pleading guilty to fraud in March 2014. Teresa served 11 months of a 15-month sentence and was released in December 2015.
Joe served his prison term after Teresa, and got out in March 2019. Because Joe is not an American citizen, he was deported to Italy, where he’s now living.
After 20 years of marriage, the couple separated, and their divorce was finalized earlier this month.
The couple bought the land for the house in 2001 for $530,000 and began building their dream house.
After driving through the private gate, the home stands out with its red roof and red gravel driveway with a huge planter. An attached three-car garage plus a detached two-car garage allow room for five cars.
Inside, there’s plenty of room, with a huge two-story great room, a large dining room, and an eat-in kitchen that was the backdrop of numerous scenes of “RHONJ.”
Granite counters, stainless-steel appliances, and carved wood cabinets are standout details. Many a “Housewives” scene unfurled in the kitchen, where Teresa and other family members cooked up Italian feasts while also dishing.
Near the kitchen are a private wine cellar and butler’s pantry.
The home has six bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms. Four of the bedrooms, including the master, are on the second floor.
The master bedroom is enormous, measuring 36 by 22 feet, and includes a fireplace. Both the hardwood floors and high ceilings have decorative details.
The master bathroom is gilded with gold with and includes double sinks, a vanity, shower, and columned soaking tub. There are three walk-in closets and a dressing area.
On the lower level of the house, an office, game room, and den can access the outdoor space, including a new pool.
Teresa hired a former boyfriend to build the pool, which was completed last year. During one episode of the show, Teresa said her family had been wanting a pool for many years, but that she couldn’t afford one because she was paying restitution.
Finally finished, the pool is outfitted with six fountains for a cool spray, and a shallow end for lounge chairs. Teresa has been posting to her Instagram feed from the pool all summer.
The pool was just one of the recent updates to the property. Interior designer Jimmy DeLaurentis posted to his Instagram feed that he had helped make over the home to bring in light.
The listing agent is Michelle Pais, who owns Signature Realty NJ. Page Six reports she will appear on the next season of “RHONJ,” possibly as a new housewife.
