Gorgeous Race Track House Is for a True Car Enthusiast With Some Money to Spare

You know you’re a true car enthusiast when you’d sleep at the race track. If you happen to have $1 million lying around and a sudden desire to relocate to Minnesota, U.S., you could actually do that.

Real estate by the race track is not a new concept. If you think about it, it makes sense for real estate developers to focus on race tracks for their new projects, or for diehard car enthusiasts to do the same: what better way to fully indulge in your passion than to actually live by the race track? One such property has recently been listed as available, and it’s not just cheap (relatively) but also quite a looker.

Listed with Alyssa Sharpe of RE/MAX Lakes Area Realty, the 2016 property is also featured on Zillow. It is described as “luxury living” at the race track, and that description is accurate: here is a home with 4,200 square feet (390.2 square meters) of living space, featuring all the creature comforts, luxury and custom finishes, direct access to the Brainerd International Raceway, and so much more. Perhaps just as noteworthy is the fact that the property seems built around a gorgeous 4-car garage slash display room.

If we’re realistic, the house is more like a garage with some attached living space. That is to say, it’s heaven for a car enthusiast and could, depending on the future owner, serve just as well as a man cave or as an occasional retreat for the entire family. It’s a complete home, of course, but whoever will pay $1 million for it will probably only be using it as a vacation home.

The main floor is occupied by the two-story gallery garage, which is just perfect for four or five of your collectibles that you’re thinking of taking out on the race track. Here, you get a four-stall garage, with an additional spot on the turntable. Next to the garage is a wet bar and a lounge area, just perfect for chilling after a race to recount the most memorable events.

Upstairs is the living space, comprised of two bedrooms and a total of two full bathrooms, a full eat-in kitchen and a family room with plenty of space to hang out. Finishes are all custom and all automotive-inspired, as one would expect from a house built on the race track. Up top is the observation deck, which overlooks the race track and offers the best vantage point – better than what you get with the balcony right underneath it.

There’s also an elevator, in case going up the stairs three floors feels like too much of a chore. The purchase includes direct access to the track and a “good neighbor pass” that includes tickets to events like the NHRA Nationals. “A motorsport lifestyle at its finest!” the listing enthuses. Pricing is set at $999,999.
