Finding suitable, purpose-built, or converted buildings fitted out for the sole purpose of classic car storage isn’t easy. In fact, people tell me it’s almost impossible to find. Clean, dry, private garaging that doesn’t cost a small fortune is particularly scarce in big cities, especially London.
At the same time, with the upward trend of more of us working from home than ever, the need to commute is far less of a concern. The pandemic caused a shift in lifestyles and priorities, with people making a move to the countryside and abandoning the daily grind in favour of fresh air and more free time. But we’ve also noticed that buyers are keen to keep a city close because they still want that all-important cultural, social and shopping fix.
If this sounds like you, why not satisfy all your desires?
Classic car storage, farmhouse living and accessible city culture in one.
This exclusive Farmhouse in Dorset, 10 minutes from Dorchester, sits on a 1/2-acre plot. Inside the Grade 2 listed building, you’ll find four bedrooms, three reception rooms and three bedrooms. An extended rear living room leads onto the garden.
The two converted, dry garages will grab the attention of any motoring enthusiasts. They’re the perfect place for classic car storage and keeping your collection safe. The garage accessible from the road has Victorian origins and was converted by the present owner into dry storage. It currently houses two classic cars, and has a side door next to the main house.
The second garage sits at the bottom of the garden and is accessible via a farm track 1 minute away. Built especially for classic car storage, it has a workspace and bench for tinkering and minor repairs. The natural ventilation and eaves height facilitate airflow and create a space that’s dry & cool in Summer and warm in Winter – the perfect environment for storing classic cars.
