A San Juan Capistrano home owned by “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” alumna formerly known as Dina Manzo is on the market for $4.752 million.
The five-bedroom, 4,437-square-foot home with six bathrooms sits on a quarter-acre lot at the end of a cul-de-sac in The Oak Farms equestrian community. Records show the former housewife and her third husband, businessman David Cantin, purchased the property after its completion in April 2018 for $2.3 million.
According to the listing, it has been improved with more than $1.3 million in design upgrades.
The home first appeared on the MLS in July 2019 for $3.5 million. It resurfaced in May 2023 at $5.395 million and has since dropped its price three times, from $4.995 million to $4.899 million from its current ask.
An entry courtyard flanked by a fountain leads to the front door. Inside, the gourmet kitchen features bright blue cabinets, white marble countertops, high-end stainless steel appliances, a walk-in pantry, and a large center island with seating.
The kitchen opens into a spacious great room, with a combined dining and living room under a vaulted ceiling. Glass doors open to a courtyard with areas for dining by the fire and lounging around a fire pit table on one side.
On the other side, a pool and spa terrace overlooks the oak-shaded rides just above the low hedge. A terrace and pergola-covered kitchen with a built-in grill, wall-mounted flat screen and bar seating border the pool.
Throughout the home, high-end fixtures and finishes elevate the bathrooms to a luxury spa-like experience.
The master bedroom has a fireplace and opens onto a balcony with a glass balustrade for unobstructed views of the training stables.
Christa Lee Canaday of Re/Max Fine Homes has the listing.
Dina Cantin, 51, sparked drama as an original cast member on the hit Bravo series “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” from 2009 to 2010 and 2014, as well as its party-planning series “Dina’s Party ” in 2011.
She left “Housewives” after divorcing her husband, Tommy Manzo, and moved to California. In 2015, Tommy Manzo allegedly hired a soldier from the Lucchese crime family to assault his ex-wife and her then-boyfriend, now husband, in exchange for a deep discount on a lavish wedding reception. While the gangster was sentenced to 30 months in prison, Manzo recently requested a plea deal. The case is ongoing.
