Joe Pesci has sold his waterfront home on the Jersey Shore for the original asking price of $6.5 million.
The New Jersey native is best known as an actor who collaborated with Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese in titles such as Goodfellas, Casino, Raging Bull, and The Irishman. He originally listed his home in 2019 after deciding to relocate to California to live amongst his peers.
Situated on the seven-mile-long barrier island in the Lavallette section of the Shore, the 7,200-square-foot home boasts a waterfront pool, spa, and a pier that leads onto the ocean. The sale was the most expensive in the area – making it one of the most notable properties in New Jersey – and one of the world’s best homes.
With its distinct free-standing curved staircase and its light and airy palette, the entrance hall serves as a host of entryway ideas that set the tone for the entire home.
The mansion boasts an open floor plan that ensures the rooms feel spacious – whilst creating a space to accommodate large parties that can spill out to the spacious pool terrace at the water’s edge. These white-hued open spaces also frame the bay, whose blues create a contrast with the home’s neutral scheme.
The large eat-in kitchen is a further source of kitchen ideas, complete with an island for catering large meals for dinner guests. This space leads to the dining room that is encircled by glass doors and leads to the pool terrace and bay.
Beyond these living spaces, Joe Pesci’s mansion boasts a media room with walls decorated with film posters – in a nod to his career on the silver screen. Meanwhile, the upper level, which can also be reached by elevator, has eight bedrooms, eight bathrooms, and an office. These rooms all have access to upper terraces that overlook the ocean.
While these upper terraces act as the perfect party place, there remains an additional party room next to the pool and spa – including a separate kitchen for casual entertaining.
This exterior space also offers a host of oceanic garden and swimming pool ideas through its infinity-style feature that offers a sense of serenity whilst overlooking the Atlantic.
