2 Min Read


You would be easily mistaken for thinking you’re in Cabo San Lucas at this Aussie home for sale.

The five-bedroom, four-bathroom property at 53 Baldissera Drive is known as “The Mexican House” to locals and is actually located in the Alice Springs suburb of Ross.

With its ochre-coloured exterior, hacienda front door, terracotta tiles and bold walls, the unique house very much has a “distinct Mexican flavour,” as stated on the listing.

On the books of Gail Tuxworth of LJ Hooker Alice Springs, the home has a price guide of $1,775,000.

Interiors very much reflect Mexican style architecture with bold and rustic walls, intricate tilework and imported hand-painted ceramic basins.

The semi-circular dining room with its side-by-side windows capture idyllic bush views, making it an ideal spot for entertaining.

Other dedicated entertaining zones include the “pool hacienda” with its outdoor bar, the cinema room and sound-proofed music room.

Ross is just 10km from the heart of Alice Springs. There are not enough sales over the past 12 months for Domain to obtain a median house price for the area.

Records show the home for sale last sold for $1.65 million in November 2021.
