Teresa Giudice—of Real Housewives of New Jersey fame—relisted her extraordinary 10,000 sq. ft. six-and-six mansion in Montville Township this winter. The grandiose manse first entered the market about five years ago, asking $3.9 million. It is now asking a little less than $2.25 million.
The 2008-built stucco home’s exterior is something of a suburban storybook, with a Victorian-inspired roof, a Juliet balcony with a stone balustrade, and a porte-cochere terminating one wing. Inside, the home is packed with ornament—nary an opportunity to embellish is lost—with standout details including inlaid herringbone-pattern oak floors in the step-down formal dining room.
The foyer tells the tale. The visuals in this house are never at a loss for words, and overall the home has an astonishingly extensive design vocabulary, sneaking in figured natural stone of varied types and colors, carved wood, millwork, ornate chandeliers, and the occasional Solomonic column. Amenities include a knockout gourmet kitchen, a two-story great room with a wet bar, and a billiards room.
The property’s grounds measure in at 3.5 acres, with a pond, water feature, lawns and a guest house completing the estate.
