Celebrity Homes: Mike Tyson’s Nevada house for sale

| Thursday, April 21, 2016 8:55 p.m

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.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
