ACTOR Jesse Metcalfe has closed on his new Essex Crossing apartment.
City records show the John Tucker Must Die and Desperate Housewives star paid $1.87 million for the 951 s/f one bedroom with longtime girlfriend Cara Santana.
A pal of newly-wed Royal Meghan Markle, Santana has said she, too, will get hitched in Old Blighty, but the nuptials won’t take place until next year when Metcalfe takes a break from shooting The Hallmark Channel’s Chesapeake Shores.
