…if you can afford it. This should cost at least as much as a three story deep cellar would cost (a bit cheaper because it has fewer floors, quite a bit more expensive because of the car-lifting elevator) and also be more expensive to maintain because of that elevator.

I also wonder about safety. Your kid better not wander into the garage when that elevator is ten meters down. Solvable? Yes, but it will make this even more expensive.
