An average garage should cost about $25.000 to built, but when you have money to spare, you never think “average”, you simply let your imagination control your bank account and many times that’s not a wise or good decision.
For the owners of this San Juan Capistrano, California house having a normal garage wasn’t going to be good enough, so they built a garage that has barn-style hydraulic doors that open to a 35-foot mural (hand-painted by a team of 12) and, listen closely; the largest mosaic ever to be installed in a private home: the floor; which consists of Chinese marble tiles that took two years to assemble in place. When bored with the space, they take the cars out and bring their friends in! Yes, this garage also doubles as a ballroom!
I really don’t know what to say about this one. The luxury of having all of these materials and also, the decision of throwing parties in your garage simply does not go together. First, you have all the money to spent on a garage ($2 million dollars!) and then, you act so classless by having people dancing in your garage?!
Here’s what the owner had to say about the space: “I think the first time we brought cars in here, we both held our breath,” says former owner Shelley Brose, who also called the garage “a tad bit decadent, I agree, but it’s very useful.”
The garage also features a white, hand-carved Carrara-marble screen that obscure views of the urinal in the men’s bathroom.
What do you say about this one? Cool or Fool?
The most pampered car in America.
Matter of Taste or Lack of it?
This room alone costs more than most of our houses! Oh, and I’m sure we would spend this $2 million in a much wiser way!
How much do you think this house cost? It was on the market for quite some time for $50 million but it was sold in February for “only” $4.7 mil.
See the rest of the house here. But before you do that, make sure to tell me, is this $2 mil garage Cool or Fool*?
Do you have plans for the weekend? I woke up with a bad cold today and I hope it gets better, so I can get out of the house and enjoy the warmer weather. Let me know if you have know anything that makes you feel better, sooner! 🙂
Thank you for dropping by today. I hope you had fun and enjoyed your time here!

* “Cool or Fool” happens every Friday. I’ve started this section where I post “different” and controversial things that I know some of you will love and others will not. The point is to tell us what you really think, regardless of anything. It’s a space where you speak your mind and analyze what you see. Have fun with it and laugh along the way!
