Kevin Jonas Sells His NJ Starter Home for $1.675 Million
The home, which was a new construction when the young couple moved there in 2010, was the scene of the short-lived E! reality series "Married to Jonas." In that show, Danielle Jonas lived out the teenage dream of marrying and settling down with her Jonas Brother. The show filmed the couple planting trees, hosting parties and arguing about the in-laws. One major plot point: house-hunting. Jonas and his bride wanted a new home in the area.
Instead of finding one, he found a new career and launched JonasWerner construction. He is currently working on a home for another celebrity couple in Franklin Lakes, said Celia Riggio of Terrie O'Connor Realtors. Listing agent Amy Werner shared the Roleson Way listing with Riggio. The home, in a development about a half-hour from where the famous boy band members grew up, is anything but edgy. Decorated in neutrals, it has basically the same traditional look as this Vaquero golf estate Jonas sold in 2011.
The New Jersey home was listed in October and sold quietly in January after a luncheon open house for agents. Final papers were not signed until recently. In the meantime, the Jonases welcomed baby Alena in February. The Jonas Brothers officially broke up in 2013 over a creative dispute, and since then they have pursued acting careers and other individual pursuits. Kevin and Joe announced a "speaking tour" recently, to talk publicly about their lives.
Kevin Jonas bought the Roleson Way home for $1.19 million. It has 4,788 square feet, five bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms. The listing photos offer a glimpse into the couple's life there, including guitars and a wedding photo on display.
