‘Real Housewives’ alum Alexis Bellino buys an estate in San Juan Capistrano


Former “Real Housewives of Orange County” personality Alexis Bellino and her husband, Jim, have bought a home in San Juan Capistrano for $3.65 million.

Set behind gates at the end of a cul-de-sac, the estate centers on a hacienda-style main house built in 2003. A three-bedroom guesthouse, a 2,000-square-foot barn and a 400-square-foot covered pavilion also lie within the grounds.


Within a single story of living is a great room with a stone fireplace, a center-island kitchen, an office/den, a game room with a bar, five bedrooms and six bathrooms. Including the guest house, there is nearly 7,300 square feet of living space.

Outdoors, a wide loggia opens to a saltwater swimming pool with a raised spa and a fountain feature. A bocce ball court, a fire pit, sprawling lawns and a citrus grove fill out the setting. A circular motor court with another fountain feature sits off the entrance to the home.

The estate came up for sale in May for $3.8 million and sold in about two months. It previously changed hands four years ago for $3.05 million, records show.

Lee Ann Canaday of RE/MAX Fine Homes represented both ends of the deal, according to the multiple listing service.

Bellino, 39, joined the cast of the Bravo reality series in 2008 and was a regular on the show through its eighth season.
