Mike Tyson has upgraded to a bigger house in his neighborhood and put his former home near Las Vegas up for sale.
The former boxing champ, 49, recently bought a two-story, 8,149-square-foot mansion in Henderson, Nevada, for $2.5million, and it’s just down the street from his old house, Clark County records show. Tyson and his wife closed their purchase on December 28, according to the county records.
The new six-bedroom home is in a gated community and has two detached casitas, an outdoor fireplace, lush landscaping, marble flooring and a grand entry, Vegas Inc reported.
A news release from Luxury Homes of Las Vegas says the brokerage firm has listed Tyson’s former home for $1.5million. According to county records, Tyson bought the home in 2008 for $1.75million from NBA player Jalen Rose.
The home has been ‘smartly updated’ for resale, the news release said, noting that Tyson is climbing back to financial success with (animated TV series) Mike Tyson Mysteries, celebrity appearances, endorsements and a renewed business savvy’.
Broker Ken Lowman, owner of Luxury Homes of Las Vegas, said in the statement: ‘The lucky buyer will not only be able to live in Mike Tyson’s old home, they will also be his new neighbor!’
