Waterfront Mansion With Elegant Garage

In the chilly months of winter, nothing beats owning a home with a garage -- how fantastic is it to start an early-morning commute without having to scrape ice off your car? Today's cool house takes that concept one step further, with a garage that's just as luxurious as the home itself.

Location: Mooresville, N.C.
Listed By: Mari LaPrelle of Keller Williams Realty Lake Norman
Price: $9,500,000

Large enough to house five cars (and maybe a motorcycle or two), the space is lined with stone floors, white wainscoting and charming barn-style doors. An eye-catching tin tile ceiling tops it off.

With a garage this gorgeous, it's no surprise that the rest of the home is stunning as well. Situated on 600 feet of shoreline on Lake Norman, the four-bedroom residence took more than two years to design and another two to build. Nearly every room boasts spectacular views, but the very best can be found in the dining room, where an enormous arched window showcases scenes of the serene water.
