A former race-car driver’s Colorado mansion – which includes a 100-car museum, an indoor pool inspired by Hugh Hefner, and a “Star Trek”-themed theater – has been listed at $20 million.

The home was built by Richard Berry, a grandson of Loren M. Berry, who was known as “Mr. Yellow Pages” for his invention of the business telephone directory.

Richard Berry originally purchased the property in the late 1990s for under $1 million, The Wall Street Journal reported. The home is now being sold by LIV Sotheby’s International Realty.

The mansion, nicknamed “Thunder Ridge,” is in Evergreen, Colorado, less than an hour from Denver. It’s at the end of a five-mile stretch of mountain roads, which Berry has used as his personal racetrack, The Journal said.

Take a look at the mansion and the garage, which is 1,600 square feet larger than the home.


The home was built in 2004.

The architect of the home initially camped on the property for several nights to “make sure he got the feng shui of the place,” Berry told The Wall Street Journal.

If the next owners don’t have a need for a car showroom, the space could be converted into stables or sports courts and rinks, Berry told The Journal.
