The former New York Giants All-Pro defensive end Justin Tuck is looking to tackle a new owner for his New Jersey home. The Fort Lee, NJ, abode can be yours for $2,988,000.
He purchased the brick Colonial in 2008 for $2.7 million—just a few months after leading the Giants to an upset victory in Super Bowl 42.
Tuck may want to check to see whether any current Giants would be interested in his digs. The North Jersey property is a quick, 15-minute drive to MetLife Stadium, where Big Blue plays on Sundays.
In addition to its proximity to the stadium, the 10,000-square-foot mansion is located in a “wonderful neighborhood,” and sits on a private cul-de-sac.
The massive space, with traditional decor, features six bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms. The interiors include custom tile and hardwood floors, along with surround-sound speakers. The family room has 20-foot ceilings.
An oversized gourmet kitchen comes with high-end appliances, a wine fridge, dark wood custom cabinets, as well as a butler’s pantry with a sink and wine bar. Black-and-white patterned tile flooring completes the space. The home also comes with a formal dining room that has French doors leading outside.
On the upper level, the master suite includes a sitting area, access to a balcony, and a relaxing en suite bathroom with a soaking tub and fireplace.
Downstairs, the finished lower level includes a sleek home theater, billiard-room, bar, wine storage, sauna and steam room, and a bedroom with a bathroom.
Outside is a deck that leads to a professionally landscaped yard. A patio and outdoor dining area sit next to a grassy lawn. The home also comes with a three-car garage, generator, and lawn sprinkler system. Set high on the Fort Lee bluff, the property looks out to Hudson River and George Washington Bridge views.
After starring in college at Notre Dame, Tuck was drafted by the Giants in the third round of the 2005 draft. The defensive end played almost his entire 11-year career with the Giants, winning two Super Bowl championships with the team.
After retiring in 2016, the Alabama native earned his MBA at University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business. He now works for Goldman Sachs as a vice president in private wealth management.
