Joe Pesci, the star of Martin Scorsese’s new crime drama “The Irishman,” has listed his large New Jersey home for $6.5 million.
Located along the Jersey Shore in Lavallette, the home fronts the bay, has direct water access and full views. It spans 7,200 square feet and has eight bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a curving statement staircase, an eat-in kitchen with an island and an elevator. Outside, meanwhile, there’s a huge patio with a heated pool and a spa, as well as a private dock.
The house, which was built in 1990 and purchased by Pesci in 1994, is designed with an open layout and contemporary style, with glass walls and water views in nearly all of the rooms. The master suite has a private balcony, and there’s a bar room that Pesci decked out with movie posters (many featuring himself) and a pinball machine.
“This magnificent home proudly sits on the Bay and is a short bike ride to the ocean,” reads the listing description. “It also stunningly blends interior and exterior to create an entertaining showplace and also offers a tranquil retreat-like setting.”
Michael Puccio of RE/MAX Central holds the listing. Pesci, 76, was born in New Jersey to an Italian-American family. He is most known for bad guy roles in “Home Alone,” “Raging Bull,” “Casino” and “Goodfellas,” for which the actor received an Oscar in 1991. According to Realtor.com, Pesci is well-known to Lavallette locals — the actor reportedly bought a home for his mother in the same town.
Pesci officially announced his retirement from acting back in 1999 but occasionally appears in films by close friends Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro. “The Irishman” is his first movie in nine years.
