Most of the time when we talk about “professional grade” we’re talking about the appliances in the kitchen, but in this case, it’s in a slightly different context because this Friday, September 28, the former home of NFL Hall of Famer LaDanian Tomlinson goes up for a no-reserve auction.
The six-bedroom, six-bath, and two-half-bath Colonial-style home is located on 9.3 landscaped acres in Basking Ridge’s exclusive Pheasant Crossing neighborhood and most recently was offered for $2.95 million. The home includes a long list of luxury features and finishes throughout its 7,189 square feet.
The walkout lower level is something straight out of MTV Cribs, offering man-cave potential with a wood-burning fireplace, home theater, card room, and 1,000-bottle wine cellar.
The front porch is paved in bluestone, offering access to a doorway guarded by pineapple sconces. From the main entry, a two-story grand foyer offers an opulent welcome with a chandelier, ceiling medallion, and curved staircase.
A formal dining room spills through a butler’s pantry to the gourmet kitchen, or you can cook out back on the patio’s built-in Lynx grill. There’s a water feature and brick fireplace out there, too.
The master suite boasts built-in cabinets with sink and refrigerator drawers as well as a wood-burning fireplace. There’s a guest bedroom with an en-suite bath on the first floor and four more on the second.
Platinum Luxury Auctions puts the home at Pheasant Crossing in Basking Ridge up for bid this Friday, with no reserve. For more information, visit their site.
