Ever dream of living in Tony Soprano’s world? Now’s your chance.

A TV-famous house in Newark — where the fictional mob boss on HBO’s “The Sopranos” dug up the yard in a vain attempt to retrieve $40,000 — is up for grabs. And it’s all yours for just $579,900.

This Essex County property was a star in its own right, featuring as the home of Corrado John “Junior” Soprano Jr. — better known as Uncle Junior — in multiple episodes of the hit series.

During season 6 of the legendary show, a major turning point occurs during the first episode, entitled “Members Only” — Tony Soprano is shot by his aging relative, who is suffering from dementia.

Although the show depicts the home on Watsessing Avenue in Belleville, the actual house is located across city lines at 380 Highland Avenue in Newark’s leafy Forest Hill section.

A memorable scene has Tony digging up the yard in vain, searching for monies that Junior falsely claimed were buried there, leading to a humorous exchange with a neighbor about moles.

Later in the episode, Junior, confused and seeing Tony as an old enemy, shoots him in the abdomen, then hides while Tony struggles to call 911. This event triggers a series of surreal episodes featuring Tony’s alter ego, Kevin Finnerty.

The house, last sold in 2019 for $420,000, is now back on the market.

A stone’s throw from sprawling Branch Brook Park, this charming single-family home boasts four bedrooms, three full bathrooms, a partial bathroom, bright blue kitchen cabinets, and gleaming hardwood floors. Annual taxes? A cool $13,096.

Built in 1927, this piece of TV gold is a center-hall colonial, which sits on a corner lot and offers a 2-car driveway, 2-car garage, and nearly 3,000 square feet of living space.

Inside, you’ll find an updated kitchen, a dining area, and a bonus den or office space off the living room.

Uncle Junior’s crib was also up for grabs last year at $585,000. And let’s not forget other famous addresses from the show, like the homes of Tony Soprano and Johnny Sack in the Caldwells, which have also been listed in the past.

Earlier this year, Holsten’s Ice Cream, Chocolate & Restaurant in Bloomfield — of series finale fame — caused a feeding frenzy by auctioning off the booth where the Soprano family gathered during the episode’s last moments. That prime piece of pop culture memorabilia fetched a whopping $82,600.
