Most classic car enthusiasts consider a garage a must-have when it comes to shopping for a home, but a property for sale in Georgia has an entire car barn.

The 40,000-square-foot structure –- a former horse barn –- was designed and built by muscle car collector Milton Robson.

While it began life as a huge stable, Robson turned it into a climate-controlled car storage area about 20 years ago. In addition to plenty of room for cars, the barn has an office, a turn-of-the-century style saloon, and replicas of an old-time main street.

Yes, that even includes a faux car dealership.

Of course, the buyer of the most expensive home for sale in Georgia won’t just get the barn. The main house has five bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms in more than 12,000 square feet. A trio of porches offer views of a river, a lake and a waterfall.

Robson told the Atlanta Business Journal that the rare red slate roof was specifically chosen to match the home’s doors, which were made in New Mexico.

But that’s not all the $16.5 million price tag will get you. The property has multiple caretaker homes.

It also comes with 446 acres, which is room enough to build a fairly decent-size test track, should you be so inclined.

    On 13 November 2010, Robson’s entire collection was sold by RM Auctions, from his custom-built garage. The collection sold for $9,200,000, breaking several records in the process.

    The most expensive car sold was a 1969 Pontiac GTO Judge Ram Air IV Convertible, one of only five built and the only Starlight Black example.

    This lot “sparked a lively bidding war", in the words of RM Auctions, and was purchased for $682,000, setting a new auction record.

    Another lot garnering “significant attention” was a 1960 Chrysler 300F Four-Speed Convertible.

    Described as the only factory four-speed, 400-hp convertible in existence, it sold for $437,250, also setting a new auction record.
