This Florida Mansion Has An Enormous Garage And Bonus Race-Track

This gated manor in Florida has everything for everyone, especially the car lover.

  • The property is only $17.5 million, down from $22 million.
  • Has both a 20-car and a 7-car garage plus a fully operational workshop.
  • Bonus: it includes a go-kart track.

No, we’ve not decided to expand and cover real-estate. What we have done is stumbled upon a house, nay, mansion for sale near Tampa, Florida, that would the absolute perfect place to practice social distancing and be quarantined. The Oaks, as it is called, is an incredible estate that holds all the space and tools for any do-it-yourself car enthusiast. It also happens to have a go-kart track on the premises.

Sure, most buyers will drool at the fact that the property offers 8 bedrooms, 12 full bathrooms, and 14 half baths for 36,361 SF of air-conditioned space. We are impressed with the kitchen and its 72-inch LaCornue range with double vaulted ovens but there’s always delivery…

The kicker is without a doubt the 11,000 square feet workshop with included paint and body facilities! The previous owner maintained his vast fleet of 80 cars and even had many restored on site. The 20-car garage features high ceilings which are perfect for a series of lifts to either aid in storage and when there are more project cars in the works. The daily-drivers have their own spot as, attached to the main house, there is a supplemental 7-car garage.

The property sits on 36 acres, near Lake Thonotosassa, and includes a go-kart track. We could not find any details on said track however we think, from the aerial shot, that it could be a great place to practice drifting… The neighbours seem far away enough. If they get upset, you can always invite them for a drink and a friendly game of bowling to make amends.
