Luxury Living: Homes for car enthusiasts

From the California desert to Spain’s Costa Blanca, 5 exclusive homes designed for auto aficionados — all from Christie’s International Real Estate

This luxury villa complex in Vienna’s historic 19th district comprises an elegant mansion, office, and additional residence, set within a private park. The myriad recreation areas include a secluded terraced garden with a pool and pool house and a natural pond. But it is the home’s underground eight-car garage that is truly exceptional: here, car enthusiasts can survey their prized collection under crystal chandeliers to the sounds of a grand piano.

Overlooking the Coachella Valley in the resort community of Rancho Mirage, this showpiece home is a dream for car collectors. The custom showroom garage can display up to seven vehicles and includes a kitchen and lounge. The 5,800-square-foot interior is replete with designer living spaces that bring the outdoors in. Of special note is the outdoor entertaining terrace with full kitchen and bar, fireplace, and resort-like pool with a raised spa and waterfall, offering panoramic views of the desert.

Located on the premier street in the village of Sag Harbor, this extraordinary home combines 21st-century design and technology with historic architecture. Recreated from an 18th-century structure, the 7,000-square-foot residence is presented with five en-suite bedrooms and grandly appointed living areas. The garage is no less impressive — a custom car lift descends to a lower-level glass-enclosed auto showcase overlooking a lavish entertainment area.

Built into the hillside high above Porto de Jávea on Spain’s Costa Blanca, this glamorous modernist villa resembles a secret lair. The features begin at the entrance: a private driveway that ascends to a motor court complete with a turntable parking space. Inside, a two-story gallery opens to more than 8,500 square feet of chic living spaces with five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a gym, sauna, and indoor swimming pool overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.

Located on Florida’s Gulf Coast, this eight-acre estate is packed with amenities for equestrians and motorcyclists alike. The equine facilities include a state-of-the-art barn and several white-fenced paddocks. The custom-built home features a theatre and bar, a resort-style pool area, and a Harley Davidson showroom and lounge — complete with suspended model train track around the perimeter of the room.
