Pretend you’re stepping into a James Bond film at this Mornington trophy home, with its own viewing room for collectable cars.
The 13 Caraar Creek Lane pad’s $12m-$13.2m asking price includes a wraparound infinity pool with an underwater exercise bike, five bedrooms and a six-car garage with a window for car lovers to admire through from inside.
Vendor Steve Winchester said the feature was the work of interior designer Rohan Riley, who wanted to “make a showpiece” of his prized Ferrari.

“He said, ‘lets incorporate a separate garage within the garage’ – so if you’re walking to the theatre or the cellar, the lights automatically come on (and you can view the car through the window),” Mr Winchester said.
“I wasn’t overly sure … but I’ve become accustomed to it.”
A former builder, he said he and his wife worked with the design team to ensure there was “something in every room that stands out”.
This included light fittings imported from Europe, an antique cellar door sourced from Tasmania via the UK, and a French chandelier.
The pool is also self cleaning, while $350,000 landscaped gardens by Colin Hyett are low maintenance and self watering.
Inside, the two-storey home has ocean vistas from the main living and dining space.
A sophisticated kitchen with two ovens, including one salvaged from the original home, and a butler’s kitchen will make Christmas dinner a breeze.
And a suspended wood fire ensures the space still feels cosy.
A luxurious main bedroom takes in views of the bay and greenery, while partnered wardrobes and an ensuite complete the decadent suite.
Four bedrooms – each with an ensuite and walk-in wardrobe – plus a theatre room and a 1000-bottle wine cellar can be found downstairs.
Coastal Agents Mt Eliza director Liz Todd said the seaside abode, which was completed in 2014 after a two-year build, had a “resort” feel.
“Everything is designed for ease of living and ease of entertaining,” Ms Todd said.
The striking home also includes a “secret” rooftop with a concealed entry, nine fridges and automated push-button technology.
Ms Todd said the vendors were moving to live on acreage.
Local, Melbourne city-based and international buyers had shown interest so far, she said.
