    Melissa and Joe Gorga are going to have to find a new place to get “Real.”

    The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars have sold their 6 bedroom, 7 bathroom, 13,500 square foot Montville, New Jersey mansion for the full asking price of $3.8 million.

    US Weekly broke the news that the married duo and their three kids are leaving the town of Montville, NJ and heading back to Franklin Lakes, NJ because it’s closer to Joe’s work. They have purchased a piece of land for an unknown sum and plan to rent another home until the new dream home is complete.

    In last season’s “Real Housewives of New Jersey” reunion, a tearful Melissa admitted that she and Joe were selling their Montville home to prevent their children from having to go to school with the daughters of then arch-enemy, sister-in-law Teresa Guidice. The feuding family members have since made amends, and with the upcoming move to Franklin Lakes, the Gorga family will be even closer to their in-laws.

    When this home hit the market in May 2012 with an asking price of $3.8 million, it wasn’t the Gorga’s first attempt at a sale. In 2010, before they first appeared on the reality show (and shortly after completing construction of the home), they listed it for an optimistic $4,100,000.

      When it comes to high-priced New Jersey real estate, it’s getting real. Just this morning,  The Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s very own Joe and Melissa Gorga re-listed their stunning European-influenced mansion for $3,800,000, according to US Weekly. This is not the first time this very home has hit the market. In 2010, before they first appeared on the reality show (and shortly after completing construction of the home), they listed it for an optimistic $4,100,000.

      When talking about why they’re moving, Joe Gorga told US Weekly, ”I’m a builder. I custom-built the houses we have lived in and will do the same with our next one. We tried Montville, but it just wasn’t for us. We want to go back to Franklin Lakes, which is closer to where I work, and we’re looking at a couple of properties now.”

      Built in 2009, the home features six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, four fireplaces and a three-car garage. The Gorga’s for-sale house features rich, thematic detail and is set in a prestigious yet tranquil and private location near major highways to New York City. Upgrades to the home include an extra-thick English slate roof with copper gutters and leaders, custom stone and a Florida stucco facade, Italian marble foyer with inlays, dual marble stairways, custom tray ceilings, high-end kitchen and baths, rounded-cedar French doors and cedar windows, gorgeous wood paneling, arched hallways with thick, continental-inspired moldings, delicately curved built-in bookcases, luxurious fireplace mantles and gleaming hardwood floors in rich hues. The home also has additional luxury details, such as domed ceilings and a circular wrought-iron banisters.

      Devotees of the New Jersey version of the “Real Housewives” franchise will remember that Joe Gorga installed a $50,000 recording studio for wife Melissa in the basement of this very home. The listing makes no mention of the studio, which means that it probably goes with the family (in pieces, of course) when they move into their next stunning home.

      The Gorgas also have their vacation home in Toms River, New Jersey on the market for $520,000.
