Can you see the garage? This $12 million mansion has a secret James Bond driveway

This $12 million Australian mansion has a secret James Bond garage.

It’s completely hidden to the naked eye, but beyond the front gates of this villa is a massive eight-car garage. 

In fact, you could walk right past it without even knowing it was there.

But if you look closely, you’ll see a secret panel in the ground lifts up to reveal a basement garage.  

And this is no normal garage either.

Not only does it have space to house eight cars, it’s also designed as a rumpus room with a private art gallery. 

And in case that’s not impressive enough, the gallery-style garage also has a cellar.


The French provincial-style home is in the heart of one of Melbourne’s most prestigious neighborhoods, Toorak. 

And it’s currently listed for sale by Kay & Burton.

Lined by trees and surrounded by some of the biggest and best houses in the city, whoever snatches up this prime slice of real estate is hitting the jackpot.  

Let’s just hope they’re a car lover because that’s one garage we don’t want to see go to waste! 

The garage isn’t the only part of the home you’ll fall in love with either. 

While the home looks like a chateau you’d see in the French countryside, the inside has been completely renovated into a sleek, sophisticated modern home.

The French-style front doors open to a foyer which has 3.5-meter tall ceilings. 

The grand entryway leads to a formal sitting room and lounge room with a stone fireplace. 

The renovated kitchen is finished with a stone island bench and marble countertops. 

And outside, the pool is surrounded by lush greenery and climbing trees.

Upstairs is a massive master bedroom with its own lounge room, two guest bedrooms and a study. 

And while the home is exquisite, we can’t get past the obvious selling point, that garage. 

I don’t think it was built with my Suzuki Jimney in mind, but I reckon it looks pretty sweet nestled in there:
