Joe Pesci is selling his waterfront home in Lavallette, NJ, for $6.5 million. At that price, it’s far and away the most expensive listing in the tiny borough along the Jersey Shore

Built in 1990, the 7,200-square-foot contemporary has eight bedrooms and eight bathrooms. It last changed hands in 1994 for $850,000.

Thanks to an open floor plan and walls of glass, the living and dining spaces feature spectacular water views. The eat-in kitchen includes a center island and space for a casual dining table.

Up a spiral staircase, the master suite includes a private balcony, bathroom, and office. The home is equipped with an elevator.

Pesci, who won an Oscar for his supporting role in “Goodfellas,” isn’t shy about showing off his career in film. The home theater is decorated with movie memorabilia, and photos of the actor—including an iconic image with Robert De Niro from “Raging Bull”—adorn the walls.

Outside, a large deck expands the living space and leads to a heated pool and spa, as well as a boat dock.

Located in the West Point Island neighborhood, the bayside home is just a short bike ride to the ocean. 

Pesci is known for his iconic roles in “My Cousin Vinny,” “Casino,” and “Goodfellas.”

Around town, “Locals see just another neighbor in tank top and shorts,” the New York Times noted in 2005, when the sleepy resort area began to gain in popularity. The New Jersey native bought a home for his mother there, and also had a brother living on the island, according to the Times. 

The 76-year-old announced his retirement from acting in 1999, but came out of exile to star in Martin Scorsese‘s “The Irishman,” a crime drama starring De Niro and Al Pacino.
