Close your eyes and picture the dream home of a petrol head. Are they really thinking about the number of living rooms, bathrooms or the colour of the kitchen? No. They are looking at the floorplan thinking “how many cars can I fit in that space while still calling it a house?” This house in Cresson, Texas, has done just that. With the whole ground floor being taken up by a six-car garage and a two-car porte-cochere. The actual living space of two bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms is left to just the first floor – but no one really cares about that, do they?
The fully kitted-out garage is what most car-lovers dream of. It comes with hydraulic lifts to work on the cars, a sofa area, and tv, making it the perfect man-cave for those who have fuel in their blood.
Not only do you have a miniature car park in your home, but you also have unconditional use of a 1.7-mile long racetrack and 1.3-mile shorter racetrack on your doorstep. And as estate agents always say, “location is key”… well, in my eyes, you cannot get a better location than that!
On the market with F1 Real Estate Group (I know, rather fitting), this house is only up for $449,000! A bit of a bargain if you compare it to the garages of the likes of Jay Leno, Floyd Mayweather, and Lewis Hamilton.
Are you in the market for a racetrack (with a house attached)? Yep, me too.
