The "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star, 33, and her husband, Joe Gorga, 37, have listed their Montville Township, N.J., mansion for $3.8 million. Built in 2000, the colonial-style home features six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, four fireplaces and a three-car garage.
"I'm a builder. I custom-built the houses we have lived in and will do the same with our next one," Joe tells Us Weekly exclusively. "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."
Adds Melissa, "I absolutely love our current house and will be sad to leave, but Joe is an incredible builder, so I have no doubt that I'll love the next house just as much. Although this is the last time he is getting me to pack up!"
Melissa -- mom to Joey, 2, Gino, 4, and Antonia, 6 -- tells Us their children are approaching the ages "where all of them will be in school and now is the time to try to make the move and be in a place where we are going to stay in the long run.
Joe is eager to move his family into their new home. "Wait till you see the next house I build," he tells Us.
The Gorgas originally moved to Montville to be closer to Teresa and Joe Giudice, both 40, and their four daughters, Gia, Gabriella, Milania and Audriana. "Guess it's too close for comfort with all that has gone on," a source tells Us of the feuding family members.
