The Real Housewives of New Jersey felons Teresa and Joe Giudice are experiencing some real horror surrounding their New Jersey. Desperate to sell and rustle up some cash, they have cut the asking price by another $1 million since the housewife started her 15-month prison sentence for fraud at the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut. Click through these 13 photos supplied by to see this massive dream home that the Giudices built from the ground up — and was partly responsible for their downfall!
This 10,044 square foot big house in Towaco, New Jersey is quite different from the "big house" that Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa is living in for the next 15 months.
This mansion, which has a grand two-story entrance with double Cinderella staircases, was listed on Sept. 9 for $3.9 million ahead of their court date.
Just a few weeks after the Giudices received their sentence on Nov. 7, the price of the home was cut by $500,000 to $3.499 million.
Now, only two days after Teresa started her prison term in Danbury, Connecticut, the price has once again dropped to $2.9 million, which is $1 million less than the original asking price.
The Giudices picked up the vacant lot in 2002 for $530,000 and proceeded to build their massive Chateau-style mega-mansion.
The massive home sits on 3.5 acres and features 6 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, which basically gives every single member of the Giudice household their own bathroom.
“There’s a lot of Teresa’s personal touches throughout the house, including an abundance of brown and bling,” says Trulia.
The gourmet kitchen, located at the center of the home, is the scene for many of their special family moments that were played out on Real Housewives of New Jersey and is also, perhaps, where Teresa did most of her research for her many cookbooks.
The massive kitchen features a butler’s pantry and large working center island, perfect for entertaining, which the Giudices will not be doing much of anymore.
Although the series Orange is the New Black was based on the correctional facility in Danbury, Connecticut, that Giudice now calls home, this room clearly shows that Teresa preferred pink.
This over-the-top bedroom, which has three custom-designed walk-in closets and a massive gas fireplace, will not be seeing much action now that the Giudices won’t ever share this bed together again.
Joe will surely be spending much of his remaining time in the house in this wine cellar, equipped with enough alcohol to get him through the lonely months without his wife.
With lawyer bills piling up, it is no wonder that the Giudices have decided to sell their New Jersey mansion, which was once considered by Teresa to be her “dream home.”
