New Jersey Housewife Melissa Gorga Sells Home
On Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice are pretty far from friends. Although the two are sisters-in-law, they fight constantly and compete over everything.
While both are nearly matched for controversial behavior, there’s one area where Gorga comes out a little ahead of Giudice: real estate.
While Giudice and her husband are facing dozens of fraud charges — specifically mortgage fraud on their mammoth New Jersey mansion — Gorga and her husband just sold their New Jersey home for the full asking price of $3.8 million, according to a report by US Weekly.
The two reportedly sold the home at 8 Pond Vw, Montville, NJ 07045 in order to begin construction on their new dream home in Franklin Lakes, NJ. While they wait for development to begin, the family of four will be staying in a rental home.
“It’s going to be a lot of work designing and building the new home, but Joe is an incredible builder, and I’m excited to go back to where we started our family,” Gorga told US.
Although the Gorgas are anticipating a brand-new dream home, their former residence in Montville was pretty luxe. They bought the newer “European-influenced” home in 2007 for $950,000. Sitting on nearly 2.5 acres, the home measures 9,500 square feet and has 6 bedrooms and 6.5 baths.
Custom upgrades include an Italian marble foyer leading to a dual marble stairway, custom tray ceilings, carved moldings and built-ins.
