New Jersey’s own Artie Lange has unloaded a townhouse that he has owned for over two decades as the TV and radio personality continues to keep a low profile following his battles with addition.
Lange, who grew up in Union Township before finding stardom as a “sidekick” on The Howard Stern Show, listed a home in Roseland earlier this year. The comedian purchased the property back in 2003 for $429,000 when it was part of the brand-new Roseland Green development.
Public records show that the sale of the home was finalized on May 5 for $679,000. Meredith Giudice of Coldwell Banker Realty was the broker of record for the transaction.
Described in the listing as “spacious and bright,” Lange’s former home sports two bedrooms and three baths. A living room features high ceilings and sliding doors that lead to the deck, while a kitchen at the home sports a breakfast nook.
The property also sports an unfinished basement. Community amenities available to homeowners within Roseland Green include a pool, a sports court, tennis facilities, a club house and a playground.
Lange, who chronicled his Garden State upbringing in his best-selling book, Too Fat to Fish, still owns a condo in Hoboken but has stepped out of the spotlight in recent years. He was arrested on cocaine and heroin possession charges back in March 2017 and pleaded guilty later that year.
He entered a drug treatment program following the plea but was busted again in 2019 in Essex County for failing to comply with the program. Lange’s recent history has taken a better turn, as the 55-year-old announced last year that he completed New Jersey’s drug court program.
