The biggest star of the Bravo hit television series “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” TERESA GUIDICE, listed her nearly 10,000 square-foot Towaco, New Jersey mansion for sale this fall. Set on an expansive 3.7 tree-lined acres, Guidice’s home is the premier property in the coveted Towaco section of Towaco.
The Michelle Pais Group, the top luxury real estate group in the state, was the clear winner in Guidice’s selection of a real estate team to list her sprawling property. Ranked by Real Trends and Wall Street Journal as the number one real estate team in the state of New Jersey for the 2019 calendar year, it comes as no surprise that Guidice entrusted Pais and her team with this esteemed sale.
The exterior of Guidice’s mansion is adorned with all the character and European feel of a Mediterranean villa. Turrets and eves of varying sizes add ornate detail to the stucco and stone finish of this truly custom home. Considerably set back from the road, the 3.7 acres of professionally maintained land is one of Pais’s favorite features of the home: “One of the features I like best about the home is it sits behind the wrought iron gates and it’s perfectly set back. It’s very private and the grounds are immaculate. There are even two ponds on the property,” Pais tells us.
The entryway of Guidice’s home sets the tone for the luxurious attention to detail throughout. The two-story grand entry foyer is light and bright with marble floors and an elevated ceiling. The focal point of the entryway is the oversized Cinderella staircase illuminated by an opulent chandelier.
With over 9,500 square feet of luxury living space, this Towaco mansion boasts six bedrooms, five full bathrooms, and one half bathroom. Each room’s ornate features and details display the thoughtfulness behind every foot of this spacious custom build.
In addition to the eye-catching grand foyer, the first floor of Guidice’s home includes an oversized great room fit for entertaining large groups of family and friends in style. With soaring ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace, and unobstructed views of the lush, wooded property, this is a place where guests will want to spend much of their time.
Adjacent to the great room and the true heart of the home is the gourmet kitchen. The expansive chef ’s kitchen is outfitted with high-end appliances, a granite island, and an oversized butler’s pantry. Friends and family will gather around this kitchen for hours, making both meals and memories. The perfect wine pairing for any gourmet dish is only steps away in the home’s private wine cellar.
While the first floor of Guidice’s home is a showstopper in its own right, it should not surprise fans of RHONJ that Guidice’s favorite part of the home is on the upper level. “Teresa loves her master bedroom, given how large it is and it also has four closets. That’s her favorite room in the house,” Pais informs us. In addition to the ample closet space, the master suite includes a convenient gas fireplace, a posh dressing room, a balcony, a sitting area, and an ensuite with an oversized Jacuzzi.
