Celebrity Homes: Mike Tyson’s Nevada house for sale
Former world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson has made his home in the wealthy bedroom community of Henderson, Nev., outside of Las Vegas, since 2008. Retired from boxing in 2006, Tyson traveled a long, rough road from troubled Brooklyn street kid orphaned at age 16 to a brilliant boxing career and later controversy about his outrageous conduct in his personal life and in the ring.
He has recently purchased another larger home in Henderson and has just placed his current house on the market. Only 16 miles from downtown Las Vegas, Henderson is a quiet, upscale family community away from the Vegas glitz and glitter. It is near the top of the FBI safest cities to live in the United States.
Tyson’s 5,800-square-foot contemporary home on a third acre has five bedrooms, six bathrooms and three fireplaces.
The two-story house is industrially styled with skybridges, open ductwork and vaulted ceilings with materials such as marble, wood, steel and slate. Outside is a pool with a waterfall and two spas.
Iron Mike’s Las Vegas area home is on the market for $1.5 million.
