More than just a way to travel for many, the cars we drive (and sometimes collect) are symbols of the lifestyle we choose to live. Whether it’s a classic piece of automotive history, or the latest exotic import, let’s discover five homes from around the world fit for displaying and protecting the perfect ride.
‘ESPACE’ is a brand-new boutique collection of bespoke and nestled amongst Australia’s most visited and loved precincts, everything you love about life is within an easy walk, ride, paddle, sail, train or tram ride. Included in the many offered amenities is an underground garage for up to four vehicles.
The quintessential Tuxedo Park Carriage House masterpiece, this home is private, secluded, and surrounded by nature. The original Wagstaff Carriage house (circa 1896) on this site was completely rebuilt in 2008, with attention to recrafting key elements of the original design and architectural details. Two garages, one on the ground floor, one free standing, have radiant heat and upwards of 15-car capacity, providing exceptional spaces for showcasing a fine automobile collection, potential studios for musicians or artists, or crafts workshop.
Hidden Ponds is a magnificent European-inspired country estate with several actual hidden ponds and a peaceful lake on 70 acres in the heart of Barrington Hills. Built in 2004, this slate-roofed manor exudes luxury and class with every arch and angle. The stories that this property holds are filled with music and laughter, with the aromas of feasts past, and echoes from the full-sized English Pub. Among this home’s amenities, a 6,000-square-foot vehicle showroom with adjacent storage and maintenance is perfect for the auto-enthusiast.
Villa Glory is a quintessential neoclassical home. Built in the modern interpretation of the superlatives it fits harmoniously into the wonderful landscape of Garmisch-Partenkirchen and the surrounding sought-after neighborhood. Included in this home’s interior is a striking drive-in garage with refined storage for multiple vehicles.
Poised among celebrated, historic estates, and surrounded by antique stone walls from a bygone era, this 16-room, six-bedroom manor draws inspiration from the grand homes of America’s South. Luxurious materials complemented by design and décor from the finest professionals are abound; transoms crowning windows, wide doorways, tall ceilings, a barrel-ceilinged gallery, multiple fireplaces, and a motor court leading to a four-car garage with mahogany carriage doors are a part of this home’s unique DNA.
