House With 20-Car Garage Listed For $11.985 Million (PHOTOS)

Does Jay Leno know about this place? This Marco Island estate on Roberts Bay, listed at $11.985 million, has a 10,000-square-foot house and a 9,000-square-foot, fully air-conditioned garage. Yep, the garage is almost as big as the house.

The clean-as-a-whistle garage was designed for 17 cars but will fit 20 -- if you aren't one of those parking-space hogs who angles in and takes up two spots for fear that someone might ding the Ferrari's door. Make that plural Ferraris. Clearly designed with a car-collector in mind, the garage has a display "collection" area and a workshop as well. It has two hoists, air compressors and integrated lighting. It perhaps goes without saying, but the garage has an automatic door opener, and we venture a guess that it also has lots of security features.

If you prefer to not spend all your time under the hood, the one-acre property has an outdoor living area with a wood-fired oven imported from Italy. The three-story house has two elevators and bay views. There are five bedrooms and seven bathrooms.

The chef's kitchen looks out to the bay and the property has permits to construct a 40-by-100 dock. There are Jet Ski lifts already in use. And we suppose you can drive to them.

Waterfront Realty Group Inc. has the listing.
