Joey Essex House: The Ultimate Essex Lad Pad

Joey Essex house is nothing less than a manor house in his beloved native town of Chigwell, Essex. Self-proclaimed King of Essex Joey, was always destined to become Essex royalty, I mean- it’s in his name.

Shooting to fame at just 21, as an original member of The Only Way Is Essex, he’s been in the spotlight ever since. Starring in everything reality TV has to offer, from I’m A Celeb to The Jump, he’s done it all.

His charismatic, loveable charm has secured him a permanent fixture on our TVs, which in turn has left him with a pretty hefty net worth. With that he’s managed to bag himself a rather luxurious pad in the heart of his beloved hometown. Even with all the money he has, there truly is no place like home for Mr. Essex.

Instead of investing abroad, he’s brought the tropics to Essex, installing a hot tub, pop- up beach bar and even PALM trees in his back garden. Oh, and there’s a swimming pool…

Sticking out like a sore thumb on his estate of your standard- what you’d expect to see- semi and detached houses in a quiet neighbourhood of Chigwell, Joey’s house caches all the attention.

He bought the the house for £2m back in 2015, when he was just 24- quite impressive to say he only started his career in the spotlight three years previously.

According to a family member, Joey fell in love with the house as soon as he viewed it:

“He loves the house. As soon as he saw it, he wanted it. It’s very secluded.”

For someone as high profile as Mr Essex, it’s only natural that he’s drawn to the more secluded homes, to try and preserve some of his privacy. At the end of the day, he doesn’t want pictures of him doing laps of his pool, does he?

Equipped with everything from palm trees to a swimming pool, to a tennis court- we bet he doesn’t even play tennis.

He’s featured his pad on a couple shows now, and who can blame him when it looks like that. Starring on Keith Lemon’s through the keyhole and MTV’s cribs, Joey received some backlash over how he’d got so successful (they’re only jealous)…

So after watching #ThroughtheKeyhole and seeing @JoeyEssex I think the joke is on us.”

“Wow Joey Essex has made a fortune playing stupid”

“Joey Essex has a f***ing Lamborghini! Who said thick doesn’t pay!”

It’s perhaps the outside and added extras that are the most impressive parts of Joey’s gaff, but inside isn’t too shabby either…

Featuring four bedrooms and a ‘posh room’,

It wouldn’t be Joey Essex’s house without a dedicated ‘posh room’, filled with velour coated walls and furniture and his own exclusive Dom Perignon champagne scented candles.

Joey Essex House: Wardrobe

The ex- TOWIE star is known for his fashion-forward, trend-setting clobber- take his ‘ankle watches’ for instance. Back in his TOWIE days he was rocking Ugg boots and ‘short shorts’ before they were even a thing. So, there’s no surprise that his wardrobe is (walk in- that goes without saying, really) and packed full of designer, unique pieces.

Also claiming their own healthy section of the closet are his 45 (and counting) white t-shirts. A basic essential in anyone’s wardrobe but of course, Mr Essex had to take it to the extreme.

Joey Essex House: His Crown- Shaped Bed

The King Of Essex of course has to have a king-sized, crown-shaped bed- with his initials marking his territory above the headboard.

Joey Essex House: Beach Club

Being the party boy he is, frequenting party places like Ibiza and Dubai more often than we can keep up with, his house had to reflect this side of him.

What better than a beach bar? In his back garden? Normal…

Thanks to the changeable climate in Britain, Joey’s beach club is actually missing the ‘beach’ bit. Having a wet, soggy beach for 360 days of the year, might not be worth that odd few days of sun we do get.

His prized possession white Lamborghini is of course complete with his one-of-a-kind ‘Essex’ numberplate. He might like to stay out of the public eye, choosing a more secluded house, but he certainly wants all eyes on him when he’s zooming around.

Ex On The Beach

We’ve not actually seen Joey on our screens for a while now, so it’s about time he got his face on another- this time, being Ex On The Beach.

The show’s tenth series was axed last year following the tragic death of one of its cast members, Mike Thalassitis. It’s now due back on our screens, bigger and better than ever with a star-studded lineup you won’t want to miss.

With, of course, a few Love Islanders thrown in there, along with some familiar faces including Calum Best and the man himself, Joey Essex, it’s set to be a good one.

Joey actually got more than he’d bargained for from the show, having met his now-girlfriend, Lorena Medina, on the beach. Lorena, originally from Mexico, now living in LA, has sent Joey head over heels ever since they met during filming.

Speaking with the Loose Women about making their long-distance relationship work, Joey admitted it’s not easy but Facetime and making time to fly to each other regularly helps.

We’ve followed Joey and his relationships since his TOWIE days, and it finally seems he might have settled. Well it’s about time- he is getting on a bit now, isn’t he…
