MELISSA and Joe Gorga took it back to their roots with the purchase of their beautiful $1 million water-front Jersey Shore mansion that features an outdoor beach club.
The couple spent most of the summer in their stunning vacation home, complete with an unbeatable view of Barnegat Bay.

The 3,500 square foot space holds six bedrooms and has floor-to-ceiling windows that bring in an abundance of light and allow for spectacular sunset views.
The reality star’s second home has a clean and simple white theme throughout, with small touches of greenery and lemon accents.
Melissa revealed her “favorite piece” of the dining room, which was a charming circular chandelier with Edison lightbulbs around the base.

The mom of three wanted a “nautical feel” in the living room, which she accomplished with beachy accents like gold palm frond artwork.
The outdoor patio mocks the appearance of a full marina, as the pool deck drops off immediately into the Bay, where the couple’s boat sits parked in the background.
The pool itself is a sizeable structure, with enough lounge chairs for a resort.
Melissa introduced the outdoor deck as her “own little beach club” and the “reason they bought the property.”

Two alluring fire pits are scattered near the water, where guests can relax while enjoying the scenery.

The Gorga’s beach estate also holds a “poolhouse” featuring large flatscreen TVs and a fully-stocked bar where the “liquor is always flowing.”

A neon sign carries the words: “It was all a dream” which Melissa describes as the mantra for the home.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star admitted: “It truly was all a dream growing up here at the Jersey Shore. Being able to now level up and have a house like this, I’m so blessed and I’m so grateful.”
A dock from the pool deck leads out to the couple’s boat and dual jetskis, where they can adventure out from the comfort of their own backyard.
Melissa and her husband Joe, 41, have been married for 17 years and share three children Antonia, 15, Joey, 13, and Gino, 10.

The pair met while vacationing in Cancun, though they are both originally from New Jersey.
They were married in 2004 and mainly reside in their primary residence called Montville Township.
The property is currently listed for $3million, for the first time since they purchased it in 2007.
Despite suffering from many financial issues in the past, the couple’s net worth is estimated at $2million.
