Decor and Style has today an incredible article to present you from Britain to the World. We give you the Biggest Luxury Home Car Gallery in Britain. Car galleries have fast become the essential item for wealthy homeowners and the hunt is on for the biggest one in Britain.
One of the front runners is part of a seven-bedroom mansion in the West Midlands.
The luxury home has a price tag of £3,250,000 and boasts a full-sized snooker room, a designer kitchen and an acre of landscaped gardens.
But the real star of the show for car collectors is a private underground car parking space, with enough room for 25 vehicles.

The double garage has a unique ‘scissor car lift’ to the underground car showroom. It has a polished floor and a suspended ceiling with seven columns and automated lighting.

Last month, a five bedroom home in London with a car lift and gallery for just three cars was in a list of Britain’s most popular properties for sale. It was valued at £4.85m and had a car lift to the side of the main door.
Matthew Bennett, associate at Century 21, said: ‘To say that car enthusiasts are passionate about their collections would be something of an understatement – particularly those who enjoy collecting classic cars.
‘As part of that passion they want to ensure their properties have the necessary space to be able to house their collections not just to proudly display them but also to ensure they are protected in an environment which affords them complete control and security.
‘Car galleries are fast becoming a must-have for those buying mansions and therefore this property is a car lover’s dream because not only does it have a showroom which can comfortably house at least 25 cars but it also comes with a scissor lift operation to ensure all the vehicles can be safely transported down to this phenomenal space.’
If you’ve got a classic car like a Lamborghini Miura, then its tempting to show it off.
The entrance to the mansion includes a grand staircase with a balcony.
A designer kitchen can be found on the ground level of the house .
There are several reception rooms, including this living room.
He went on to suggest there has been a growing interest in properties with car showrooms, saying collectors have ‘hit the jackpot’ with this property. He described the property as having ‘one of the biggest, most accessible – yet discrete’ car galleries.
