I am but a mere mortal: When I saw Greta Gerwig’s “Barbie” and feasted my eyes on the life-size dream house, I immediately wondered if I should paint everything in my home pink. Alas, I rent my (lovely, earth-toned) apartment, so for now I’ll satiate my rose-colored appetite by looking at Barbiecore homes — and maybe even bringing some pink accents into my own.

Enter: This contemporary compound for sale in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, brimming with bright pink walls. The entire residence, situated on almost 2.5 acres of land, consists of two buildings. One has two bedrooms, a full bath, living room, dining room, kitchen, and a gorgeous gravel-filled yard complete with a pool and enclosed by pink walls.

The second structure has capacity for eight more people, containing two bedrooms each with a full bath and one with a bonus loft, a long, sleek one-wall kitchen, an open living and dining room with vaulted ceilings, and another private pool outside.

Despite the covetable pops of Barbie-approved walls all throughout the residence, the homes also blend in with the natural surroundings in many ways, from the stone facades, wooden roofs, and polished cement accents. It’s like if the Dreamhouse got a modern, spa-like makeover.

Much like a Barbie house, however, this compound comes stocked ready-to-go with furniture, glassware, bathroom accessories, you name it. No need to haul boxes of breakables — simply put on your swimsuit and sunnies and kick back by the pool(s).
