Melissa Gorga shows off her custom New Jersey mansion: VIDEO

Melissa and Joe Gorga are on their way. The couple “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” finally moved into their new-build home in New Jersey, two years after selling their 9,100-square-foot Montville mansion for $2.5 million.

According to BravoTV.com, the Gorgas lived in a rental house while building their new home, which is located in Bergen County, New Jersey.

Melissa teased the move to her new childhood home in an Instagram post on Nov. 19, 2022. In one photo, she posed with her daughter Antonia, with moving boxes all around them. “New beginnings! It’s all happening. It’s finally moved,” the owner of the Envy boutique wrote.

Later during move-in weekend, Melissa gave fans a look at the entire exterior of the house. In an Instagram video set to Doja Cat’s version of the “Grease” song “You’re the One That I Want,” a camera panned down a long driveway and around a white mansion with pointed roofs, more than 20 black-trimmed windows, and a huge double-door entrance with a porch. The photo also showed a semi-detached garage for two cars.

“The one I want,” Melissa captioned the clip. “Always wanted a chic white brick house. We love what we do – Work hard, play hard. I can’t wait to show you inside.”

In comments on Melissa’s Instagram page, her fans wrote that the home was “gorgeous” and wished her and her family well in their new home.

But it was a different story in a Reddit thread, where critics focused on “the different-sized triangular roofs,” the off-center door placement, and “small windows.”

One Reddit user wrote that the structure and design were “strange and off-putting”. “This house reminds me of building my very first sims house when I was 10 years old,” the redditor cracked.

Others felt the house gave “Senior Living Center” feelings. “Looks like an assisted living facility,” wrote one commenter. “Very sterile. No character at all. Looks like a Hampton Inn,” wrote another.

“This house has no flair, no curb appeal. No scenery, no charm,” added another. “Why all those small windows?! …I hope the interior isn’t bland.”

Despite the negative reviews from some social media users, the Gorgas seem quite happy with their new build. Joe Gorga shared photos to Instagram on move-in day, including one of his wife all smiling as she stood on the top floor of the home in front of an ornate stair railing.

“I love making my family laugh,” Gorga wrote. “We are moving!!”

Melissa also shared a look at the home’s open foyer and staircase after the move. “Design foyer. This time it’s all about simple elegance,” she captioned the post.

Gorga previously revealed that the home design was his wife’s inspiration. “[Melissa] said, ‘I want a new house: white, new, modern,’” he said in a video posted by BravoTV.com.

Gorga, who works in construction, said he did everything he could to make sure his wife was happy. ‘I have an architect. We designed [it] like we wanted — just what Melissa wanted,” he told People. “I want a big closet. I want this, I want that, I want a big washroom, ‘and here we go.’”
