Who's house?  Run's House!  Perhaps not anymore.

Joseph "Rev. Run" Simmons is selling his $5.5 million Saddle River, NJ mansion that served as the setting for his MTV reality series Run's House, the New York Daily News reported Wednesday. 

The columned Colonial, which recently received a "top-to-bottom" renovation from Run's wife Justine, according to the Daily News, sits on two acres of land and includes six bedrooms, five bathrooms, three fireplaces, a home theater, sound studio, lounge and hot tub.

"For all its grandeur, it's still a home," Jeffrey Checkley of Weichert Realtors, the Simmons' estate agent, told the Daily News. "[Justine] is a wonderful decorator and has a great eye for understated elegance. They've created a wonderful environment."

While the Simmons' home might be "wonderful," it also might be somewhat overpriced.  The couple previously put the property up for sale in 2005.  At the time, they were asking $5.3 million for the home, which also reportedly features an indoor basketball court.

Run's House premiered in October 2005 and has since aired two more editions on MTV, with a fourth installment currently filming and scheduled to air in the fall.  The reality series follows the former Run DMC rapper, his wife and their five children as they enjoy the good moments of life as well as endure some of the sadder ones, which included the September 2006 death of their sixth child Victoria only a few hours after she was born.

The couple purchased the home that serves as the backdrop for their MTV reality series in 2003 for $1.6 million, according to the Daily News, which added Run and Justine spent much of their four years living there in fix-up mode.

"They completely renovated the home from the ground up and are looking for a new project," Checkley told the Daily News.

Run and Justine are reportedly undecided if they'll remain in the Saddle Creek, NJ area, the Daily News reported.
