GO INSIDE Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Melissa and Joe’s $2.8M renovated Jersey Shore beach house featuring a massive pool and an outside bar.
Melissa put her six-bedroom, five-bathroom vacation home up for sale last year for $2.5M only to get cold feet and pull it off the market.
Melissa, 43, and her husband Joe, 42, purchased their Jersey paradise back in 2019.
The star completely renovated the home after moving in and kept a minimalist approach to her design.
Everything in the spacious living room is white with gold accents and has an unobstructed view of the ocean through the floor-to-ceiling windows.
The Real Housewife’s vacation spot along the Jersey Shore spans 17,424 square feet and opens up onto it’s own private beach front.

Melissa shared with her fans she put her beachside paradise on the market last year.
She got three full-price offers within three days and turned all of them down because she said she got “cold feet” and wasn’t ready to betray Jersey for the Hamptons.
Melissa told Bravo: “I did not take the offers and I pulled it off the market.
She teased: “I would love to eventually work our way to the Hamptons. But I think it’s just, I’m not ready.”
Melissa and Joe sold their second beach house in the same town in January of this past year.
Their other property was significantly smaller, taking up only 1,282 square feet along the beach front.
The second home had a modest three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Its backyard also included an in-ground pool with an ocean view, although it couldn’t compete to the scale of Melissa’s “beach club.”
Melissa and Joe sold the home for $460K.
Meanwhile, Melissa’s cast mates have also been bringing Bravo cameras behind-the-scenes at their Jersey homes.
