Boxing legend Mike Tyson has purchased an 8,149-square-foot mansion in the Seven Hills community, Nevada for $2.5 million. The new house is just down the street from his former one, which now has been listed for $1.5 million.
Tyson, who earned $400 million during his 20-year professional career, filed for bankruptcy in 2003, claiming to have $23 million in debts. Apparently, Tyson has succeeded in overcoming his financial issues, since he is able to afford a place like this now.
The house is immense, at 8,149 square feet, featuring 6 bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms, and a master suite with a step-up soaking tub. There is definitely more than enough space, inside and outside, for Mike Tyson, his wife, and their two kids to enjoy life.
The exterior features lush landscaping and towering palm trees, a large resort pool, and a perfect seating area.
There is also a mini pool and fountain in the backyard. The spacious area behind the mansion also has a stretch of gardens all filled with exquisite plants.
Maybe Tyson just plans on being outside a lot to enjoy the Las Vegas weather. With an outdoor grill setup like this, it is not too hard to imagine him never wanting to cook indoors.
Then we come to the interior of the dwelling. The two-story home opens in grand fashion to a double-height foyer with marble flooring and a sweeping wrought iron staircase.
The high-ceilinged living room is spacious and well lit.
The entertainment room features a fully loaded bar, which makes the room ideal for entertaining guests.
There are six bedrooms spread throughout the house, including this spacious master bedroom.
If there is one thing that makes spending money on a mansion like this OK, it is the bathroom. This is truly a bathroom fit for a king.
The view from the bathtub is also marvelous.
Eating in this dining room would be an absolute pleasure.
This beautiful kitchen features two ovens, and opens up into a large living room with an entertainment wall.
This area of the kitchen leads to a temperature regulated wine cellar, that holds more than a hundred bottles of wine, as well as other bottled drinks.
Tyson’s new mansion is just down the street from his former house, which was bought from NBA star Jalen Rose for $1.75 million. This house has now put up for sale for $1.5 million. So buying the 5,700-square-foot, 4-bedroom, 5-bathroom house will definitely be a juicy deal, not to mention an opportunity to live next to the legendary boxer.
