Teresa Giudice is taking fans inside the Montville, New Jersey home she shares with her husband, Luis Ruelas.

Nearly two years after purchasing the 7,728-square-foot home, which features seven bedrooms, and three half bathrooms, the Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member gave a tour of the property, named Clarence Manor, which was reportedly modeled after artist Thomas Kinkade‘s “Beyond Summer Gate.”

“Welcome to my new house. Luis and I built this house to be our sanctuary. It’s all about the love, love, love, good energy, and good vibes,” Teresa says as she opens her front door in a video for Bravo.

The home is surrounded by mature trees for the family’s much-needed privacy.

A large driveway provides tons of room for guests.

“Luis and I love to cook together, and I’m all about the black and gold,” Teresa explains as she shows off her glamorous kitchen, which many have compared to that of her estranged brother, Joe Gorga, and his wife, Melissa Gorga.

As she walks around the room, Teresa tells the cameras she has her favorite cookbook, Fabulicious!: Teresa’s Italian Family Cookbook, on display “because it has [her] mom on it.”

The white of the kitchen is broken up by the black hood, window trim, and island feature.

“This is where we hang out and watch TV every night,” she continues, walking from the kitchen to the family room. “I love that if we are hanging out in the kitchen, everyone can just hang out both… kitchen, family room, and it just flows nicely together.”

The living room features a fireplace and access to the outdoors.

As she moves into the dining room, which features a hanging light and art on the wall, Teresa reveals, “This is my formal dining room.”

“I would like to have small dinner parties in here because we have such a big family now,” she says, giving a nod to her four daughters and her husband’s sons.

Two sets of French doors can be found in the dining room.

Teresa also has parties at her home bar.

“We entertain, we mix drinks… In this house, we drink a lot of tequila and pineapple. We might do shots when we’re feeling crazy,” Teresa shares.

The bar has a mirrored backsplash and stunning countertops.

Downstairs, Teresa says her and Luis’ basement is all about entertainment and “staying busy.”

The staircases of the home boast iron spindles.

“This is the movie theater,” she reveals, showing off the stunning space. “We love popping popcorn, putting our feet up, relaxing. It’s great that you don’t have to leave the house to go to a movie theater.”

Large red seats with cupholders are seen in the home theater.

And when she needs a more calming space, it’s all about her sanctuary room or buddha room.

“This is the room where I sit down and do my journaling. I meditate. I feel very zen, and I feel at peace,” she explains.

Teresa also has a home gym.

“This is my gym. There’s a lot of motivational sayings that I have around the room,” she says.

Exercise balls, free weights, and cardio machines can be found in the gym.

“And what motivates me the most,” she continues. “Anytime I’m like, ‘Oh my God, I need to leave those five pounds,’ I look at these two photos, and it just motivates me.”

“This is my backyard,” Teresa reveals as she walks outside to their backyard oasis, which features a sweet tribute to her late parents, Giacinto Gorga and Antonia Gorga.

“Luis loves making pizza, so we got this mosaic pizza oven, custom-made. We all sit down here and have pizza together. There’s enough seating for everyone,” she shares.

The outdoor kitchen boasts its own pizza oven and grill.

And, in regard to the rest of the space, she adds, “Our pool, we have the beautiful slides, and I love the waterfall. I’m able to mediate out here. We have our own private resort right in our backyard.”
