Let’s face it: If we had to choose between quarantining in rainy, cold New Jersey and sunny, warm California, like Dina Manzo, we’d choose the Golden State ten out of ten. Which is why The Real Housewives of New Jersey alum is giving us total house envy this week, as she shared looks from both inside and out of her San Juan Capistrano manse, which she listed late last year for a whopping $3.5 million. (Fun fact: San Juan Capistrano is also the town where The Real Housewives of Orange County’s Alexis Bellino owns a house that recently went up for auction.)
Since moving out west five years ago, Dina has been loving life in California, and she currently lives in the the 4,400-square-foot modern farmhouse abode, which is nestled at the end of a cul-de-sac in an “upscale equestrian community.” What’s that mean exactly? It means that Dina actually has horse stables on her property! How cool is that?
Adjacent to the stables, is a stunning dark stone pool that is elevated from ground level and features fountains, terra cotta tile, a portico, and built-in fire pits. We love the criss-cross grass pattern built into the pool’s patio, and the giant garden that… is currently empty. “Now all I need is someone who knows what they’re doing to come over and do it for me,” Dina wrote alongside a photo of the wood-encased space.
Dina also shared a look inside her home, including her living room, which has a bohemian vibe with fabric-covered chairs in various colors and patterns, an oversized natural fiber rug and a huge brass sitting Buddha statue. And if her main living area is serene, Dina’s bedroom is the opposite. Chock full of color: a rainbow rug! A purple bench! Yellow artwork! The room is as bright as can be.
