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.
