    Default An oceanfront home in Mexico

    This 20-year-old house, with its six fireplaces and sloping brick ceilings, is in Rosarito, Mexico, about 30 kilometers (19 miles) southwest of Tijuana.

    no. the architecture is very narco and the inside might have potential but the furniture is horrible as are those moldings above the bed and front door, not to mention the horrible decor.

    I like it. I've been thru Rosarito a few years back; it's where "Titanic" was filmed.

    ahh, Tijuana. something like 50 murders in December, and 600 in 2009. Drug wars and gangland killings. Not enough money to get me to live in TJ

    The exterior is tacktastic 1970s sci fi. Hate the interiors except the vaulted brickwork ceiling in the dining room and I do like those wooden shutters. It's a great location so I'd probably bulldoze the lot and start again.

    a few things I would change but I love it. I'm redoing one of the bathrooms soon and I want to do it Mexican inspired, with that Talavera painted tile and sinks with terracotta floors and shower.
