When you think of celebrities’ homes, you probably think of grand mansions in Hollywood and Beverly Hills, but these beautiful houses are scattered all across the nation. There are more celebrities living in New Jersey than you might think, and their houses are definitely worth checking out.
Bruce Springsteen’s House:
Most of his fans know that Bruce Springsteen was born in the USA in the town of Long Branch, NJ. But this house is in Rumson, NJ. Bruce’s fans adore him, his music, and absolutely love the fact that he is from New Jersey. He lived in the 7-acre estate from 1983 until March 2017, when he sold it for $3.2 million. Many of his fans were upset when news broke as they thought he would be leaving New Jersey for good. Fortunately for them, he hasn’t gone too far: Springsteen’s 368-acre horse stable and house in Colts Neck, NJ has now become his primary residence.
Chris Rock’s House:
Comedian, actor, screenwriter, and director Chris Rock is the owner of this gorgeous mansion in Alpine, NJ. Raised in Brooklyn, Chris Rock is still relatively close to home with this calm, suburban estate. This home boasts an expansive wraparound driveway, a massive in-ground pool, and a huge backyard.
Joe Pesci’s House:
Actor Joe Pesci owns this modern-style bay-front home in Lavallette, NJ. The design of the house is intriguing and unique as it doesn’t have very many corners on its exterior.

The sunsets over the bay are absolutely heavenly, and you can see them every day with no obstruction of view from inside this house.
