For car lovers, the mark of a true dream home isn’t just a spectacular master suite or epic view, but a worthy space for housing that beloved set of wheels. From magnificent auto galleries to ocean-view motor courts, these five homes offer the perfect accommodations for any prized fleet.

1677 N. DOHENY DRIVE | LOS ANGELES

Sitting on just under an acre of land and claiming one of the most remarkable homesites in the city, this exquisitely designed Doheny Estates architectural, represented by Paul Lester, is an auto enthusiast’s dream—it’s no wonder Aston Martin selected the residence as the site for the unveiling of its DB11 Valante. The main drive gate opens to an oversized motor court with a glass-enclosed auto gallery and parking for over 10 cars, all surrounded by water and fire features and overlooking panoramic city-to-ocean views.

17100 RANCHO STREET | ENCINO 

If you’ve got an extensive collection—or are looking to expand your fleet, this Encino stunner is for you. Showcasing over 20,000 square feet of living space on three acres, the newly built, off-market masterpiece in prime Rancho Estates is one of the grandest estates in the Valley. Represented by Craig Knizek and Maya Librush, the experience begins with a striking 700-foot private driveway that leads to a sweeping motor court with space for over 50 cars. Featuring 270-degree panoramic views of 20 zip codes and two mountain ranges, along with every imaginable amenity, the home’s tour de resistance is its unprecedented, 20-car auto gallery.

8971 SHOREHAM DRIVE | LOS ANGELES

Soaring atop the Sunset Strip, this sleek and sophisticated new construction, represented by Meir Kroll, boasts an auto gallery worthy of the most discerning collection. Offering space for five cars, the subterranean gallery flows seamlessly from a sprawling entertainer’s level—complete with a theater, gym, sauna, 11-foot-long waterfall bar and plush lounge. A glass elevator services all levels, while a glass-fronted garage door opens to a commanding private drive for the ultimate statement-making entrance. Not in the mood to drive? It’s prime location is just a short stroll to the best of everything on the Sunset Strip.

58 N. LA SENDA | LAGUNA BEACH

Turntables aren’t just for records anymore. Showcasing vast ocean, coastline and sunset views, this timeless Laguna Beach residence, represented by Andrew Mcdonald, Linda Chan and Sana Amarith, boasts an auto gallery that will make car and motorcycle lovers alike swoon. Walls of rare vintage bikes line the walls, surrounding a show-car turntable next to an underground jiffy lube. The best part? A window into the theatre and wine room means you can polish your prized rides (the combined space accommodates up to nine!)  while keeping an eye on the big game.

8854 THRASHER AVE. | LOS ANGELES

Set on a coveted promontory in L.A.’s exclusive Bird Streets, this modern, 10,000-square-foot tour de force, represented by Blair Chang, captures sweeping city-to-ocean views from all three floors. Flowing off an unprecedented chef’s kitchen, the four-car auto gallery is lined with floor-to-ceiling, sliding walls of glass that open to a sweeping balcony with jetliner views. Awash in natural light, this space will make those chrome details shine.
