Teresa Giudice finds buyer for her $2.2M New Jersey house

0

It’s the end of an era for Teresa Giudice who has finally found a buyer for her $2.2 million Montville, New Jersey mansion.

The sprawling estate has been on and off the market for the past year with no offers. 
In January, the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star, 48, was forced to slash the price of her longtime mansion from $2.5 million to just under $2.25 million, hoping to entice a buyer. 

She also brought in interior designer Jimmy DeLaurentis to completely change up the home’s decor.

An offer was made on March 22, and is currently under contract. However, a source tells The Post that it could take a couple of months before they close on the property.

A rep for Giudice has not responded to The Post’s request for comment.

Teresa, 48, initially purchased the home with her ex-husband Joe, 50, in 2002 for $530,000. That leaves the former couple a hefty profit of $1,718,000. 

The two had raised their four kids in the home until 2015 when the couple was convicted and ultimately jailed for bankruptcy fraud, conspiracy to commit mail fraud, wire fraud and failing to pay taxes.

Spanning almost 10,000 square feet, the home is situated on 3.7 acres and is made up of six bedrooms and six bathrooms.

Features of the home include a gourmet chef’s kitchen with stainless steel appliances and a butler’s pantry, a wine cellar, a “Cinderella” staircase and an in-ground pool. It also features a two-story great room with a wood-burning fireplace.

Earlier this month, Teresa revealed her decision to sell the house was bittersweet, but it was something she had to do to move on.

“It’s hard for me to sell the house,” she revealed on camera in a confessional. “[My ex-husband] Joe and I built the house together; we raised our four daughters in that home.”

“I am ready for a new beginning,” she added. “I’m looking for a fresh start.”

And a fresh start is exactly what she will get. Teresa has since moved on with her new boyfriend, Luis Ruelas. 

They purchased a table-flipping $3.35 million “investment property.” Ruelas, 46, reportedly funded the purchase. 

It’s unclear at this time where Teresa and her four girls will move to next while Joe remains in Italy.
