This home is basically a state-of-the-art garage with a room attached
A California home that is more car museum than house has reportedly been sold for more than $7.3 million.
The Los Angeles Times reported that the home near Point Dume in Malibu was originally listed for $10 million. Former owners Steve and Azita Goldman were willing to throw in 14 luxury vehicles if the eventual buyer was willing to part with $20 million for the property.
Clearly that didn’t happen, as the one-bedroom, four-bathroom home changed hands for about $7.33 million earlier this month.
The home has 7,002 square feet of space, the lion’s share taken up by a state-of-the-art garage. According to the former listing, the garage is equipped with a computer-controlled air filtration system that exceeds hospital standards. It also maintains the temperature between 72 and 75 degrees with 50 percent humidity — ideal conditions for storing antique automobiles.
The listing said the space is big enough for at least 25 cars but could also be used as a recording studio because of its acoustic design.
The garage space has a black epoxy floor and an upgraded security system with high-definition cameras to protect all your automotive toys.
The home has a 500-foot circular driveway, which allows easy access for a semitruck loaded with some new-to-you cars — maybe something you picked up last week at Monterey?
In total, the home has 800-square-feet of designated living space, but this place is all about the cars. Of course, if you feel the need for some fresh air, there’s no reason to ease a classic out of the garage: The beach is just a 400-yard walk.2 comments
