Soap star Jesse Metcalfe, 34, is arguably best-known for playing Eva Longoria’s hunky pool boy on “Desperate Housewives,” which is what makes his recent home purchase a little bit of a downer.
He and fiancee Cara Santana became the proud owners of a 2,362-square-foot Spanish-style home with five bedrooms — but alas, no pool.
The property had been listed at about $1.6 million andTrulia put the sales price of the couple’s new home at $1.43 million. The home transferred title on Feb. 28 and Metcalfe sold his Beverly Hills Post Office area home for $2 million, Trulia reports.
The 1925 home he and Santana will share was built in 1925 and retains some of its original charm. Best of Show may be the Spanish courtyard with tiled wall fountain. Check out the photos!
Metcalfe now plays Christopher Ewing in the TNT continuation of “Dallas.”
