There is truly only one word to describe The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member Jennifer Aydin’s sprawling New Jersey manse, and that word is BIG. Like, maybe it should have its own zip code big. Like a pro basketball team could live comfortably and even practice there big. Like if it were our house we’d probably be investing in a Segway or even a trolley. That big.
But with a large family that includes five active kids, the home’s 12,000 square feet of space is certainly put to excellent use. And we’re not just talking about the expansive kitchen that's adorned with two gleaming marble islands, the nine generous-sized bedrooms, the 16 bathrooms, or Jennifer’s dreamy walk-in closet that's lined with shoes for days. We’re also talking about the massive 8,000 square foot basement that's any homeowner’s dream. It comes fully equipped with a state-of-the-art movie theater, a spa with a sauna, and the “cream of the crop,” as Jennifer puts it: an indoor basketball court.
You heard that right. “I end up playing down here,” admitted Jennifer, who shoots a few throws into the hoop even though she's decked out in heels. “I don’t know, it’s just so awesome.” We are in total agreement on that.
