From Vincent Gambini, a newbie lawyer in the legal comedy My Cousin Vinny, to Nicky Santoro, a mobster with killer instincts in Casino, Joe Pesci’s skilled sense of timing brings his characters to life in a way few actors can match. However, in 1999, the star announced his retirement from acting in order to return to music. Though fans delighted to learn he again teamed up with Scorsese, De Niro and Pacino for Netflix’s The Irishman. Indeed, it seems Hollywood may again be calling the native New Jerseyan. Pesci put his Jersey Shore waterfront home up for sale in Lavallette, New Jersey. This fantastically located celebrity real estate has an asking price of $6.5 million. (Image credit: Re/MAX)
A Spacious Waterfront Home
Built in 1990, the 7,200-square-foot contemporary exudes an Art Deco vibe. Located in the West Point Island neighborhood it is protected from Atlantic storms on Barnegat Bay and only a short bicycle ride to the beach. Moreover, the bright and airy waterfront home takes full advantage of the beautiful view.
The eight-bedroom, eight-bath mansion makes the most of its open floor plan. Upon entering, a dramatic free-standing curved staircase sets the stage for the living areas. Large white rooms fill with light and highlight views of the bay through floor-to-ceiling windows. The living room, with its two seating areas and pianos, hint at musical get togethers.
