Teresa Giudice of “Real Housewives of New Jersey” is on the prowl for some property drama.
The pad was sold in early January for $3.35 million, according to property records.
The pair appear to be embarking on a business partnership. Meanwhile, on Valentine’s Day, they celebrated their relationship on social media.
Ruelas, who reportedly dabbles in real estate investments, put up the funds for the multimillion-dollar estate. However, it’s not clear if the couple plan to move in, or if this is purely a flip situation. Apparently, Giudice is likely to act as the property manager, TMZ asserts.
The couple did manage to negotiate a discount on the price. The mansion was first listed for $3.9 million in November 2017, and reduced to $3.49 million in June 2020. The couple made a deal for slightly under that amount.
Giudice is certainly familiar with the neighborhood. Her new digs are just a couple of doors down from the home once owned by her brother, Joe Gorga, and her sister-in-law and fellow “Real Housewives of New Jersey” cast mate Melissa Gorga.
The lavish spread is also just 3 miles from the home she’s trying to sell with her ex-husband, Joe Giudice. That swanky showpiece—which often served as the backdrop to scenes from “Housewives”—went on the market last fall for $2.5 million. Earlier this year, the price was sliced to just under $2.25 million, and it’s still available.
As for the new digs, the spread, built in 2006, offers seven bedrooms and 10 bathrooms, on nearly 6 acres of land. Dubbed Clarence Manor, the mansion is modeled on the Thomas Kinkade painting “Beyond Summer Gate” and was designed by WESKetch Architecture.
It features a six-car garage, four fireplaces, custom moldings, and Brazilian cherry hardwood flooring.
The front door opens on a dramatic floating staircase, which leads to a fireside living room, private first-floor office, and banquet-sized formal dining room, all with walls of windows and plentiful space for large gatherings.
A high-end kitchen includes custom cabinetry, granite countertops, and top-of-the-line appliances, as well as room for a casual dining table. A wall of windows looks out to the backyard. Nearby, the family room features a fireplace, wet bar, and French doors leading out to the back of the home.
Upstairs, the master suite has a fireplace and an en suite bathroom, with double vanities, heated marble floors, and a towel warmer.
The lower level features an abundance of recreational amenities, including a home theater, concession stand, exercise room, game room, and a guest bedroom with full bathroom.
Outside, the tranquil grounds include the heated pool and slide, plus a cabana with bath, along with multiple terraces and resortlike grounds.
Perhaps we’ll “watch what happens” to the house on the show’s upcoming season. Stay tuned!
