Melissa and Joe Gorga are officially moving! The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars have sold their Montville Township, New Jersey mansion for the full asking price of $3.8 million.
Us Weekly exclusively revealed in May 2012 that the Gorgas had put their 2009 colonial style home on the market. The stunning property featured six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, four fireplaces and a three-car garage. At the time, Joe told Us. "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."
And that's exactly what the Bravo stars did. The family has purchased land in the Franklin Lakes area and will start building a new home this fall. The parents of three -- Antonia, 8, Gino, 5, and Joey, 3 -- are also making preparations for their eldest children to begin school. Until their new home is ready, the Gorgas will be renting a home in the area.
"I feel like this was meant to be. It happened just in time for the kids to start their first of day of school," Melissa, 34, tells Us. "It's going to be a lot of work designing and building the new home, but Joe is an incredible builder and I'm excited to go back to where we started our family."
Developer Joe added, "This is what I love to do. I can't wait to begin building another dream home for my family."
In addition to their move, Melissa and Joe are also celebrating their 9th wedding anniversary. Melissa tweeted Tuesday, Aug. 20, "I love you Joe Gorga. Happy Anniversary! 9 years feels like 9 days."
