Mike Tyson’s life and career have been a rollercoaster of fame, fortune, extravaganza, and controversy.
The ‘big bad boxer’ has left an indelible impression on everyone who follows him either through his boxing prowess or his stunning mansions.
Through the years, Mike Tyson has spent millions of dollars on several mansions.
All of Mike Tyson’s houses have been the most exquisite and luxurious, reflecting the affluent lifestyle of the boxing legend.
Most of these houses were sold off or lost by the champion when he fell on tough times.
From his childhood home in Brooklyn to his mansion that has been converted into a church, Mike certainly has had his fair share of home-buying experiences.
Let’s dive into the list of all Mike Tyson’s houses each having its window into the life of the heavyweight champion.
Mike Tyson’s Houses
Southington, Ohio Mansion
In 1989, Mike Tyson decided to offer himself a beautiful mansion in the state.
The 33,000 square feet, 5 bedroom mansion, was a symbol of wealth and high standing, and it qualified the self-declared ‘baddest man on the planet’ perfectly.
He was forced to sell this house in 1999 for $1.3 million to Paul Monea an infomercial entrepreneur after his fall from grace began in 1992 when he was convicted of rape and was sentenced to six years in prison.
The Ohio mansion boasted five bedrooms, five bathrooms, a full-sized pool, a basketball court, four tiger cages, and an exquisitely furnished dining room and living room.
Now, the mansion is a church.
It was donated by an investor to the Living Word Sanctuary Church who paid $50,000 in back taxes for the place.
The former den of the ‘baddest man on the planet’ switched to a house of the Lord.
Today, biblical verses decorate the walls of the house, and what was once a party house is now a house of salvation.
Farmington Connecticut Mansion
This mansion was one of Tyson’s spectacular residences.
This mansion has 52 rooms and is seated on over 50,000 square feet of land.
50 Poplar Hill Drive was definitely for people who love to have a lot of friends and family members around.
The mansion has 21 bedrooms, 25 bathrooms, an indoor pool and a hot tub, an indoor and outdoor basketball court, multiple game rooms, a nightclub, and a recording studio.
Mike Tyson’s mansion was an ideal paradise.
In 2003 however, he was declared bankrupt.
That meant he had to put the house up for sale.
The place was eventually bought by 50 Cent the rapper for $4.4 million.1
Over the years, the property lost its value.
One possible reason is the high maintenance costs that are on average, north of $50 000 per month.
The property was put up for sale in 2007 at $18.5 million.
It was finally bought in 2019 by Carey Askar, a businessman, for $2.9 million.
Overlooking the Congressional Country Club (one of the most prestigious golf clubs in the United States) is another one of Mike Tyson’s properties.
The 19,000-square-foot house is located in Bethesda, Maryland.
Mike Tyson bought the property with his ex-wife, Monica Turner in 1995.
The house features 7 bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the golf course, a piano room, a sauna, a sports court, a large gym, and a swimming pool.
Mike Tyson lost the house after he and Monica Turner got divorced in the early 2000s.
She sold the property for nearly $4.6 million stating that she no longer needed the space.
Las Vegas Mansion
Also known as the ‘Seven Hills Mansion’ and the location where a part of the hit comedy movie “The Hangover” was shot, this particular mansion is a celebrity on its own and it has the looks to add to the fame.
The 5000-plus square feet Italian-styled mansion includes six elegantly styled bedrooms and six bathrooms.
Let’s not forget the 18-hole Rio Secco Golf Club and the four large private parks that contain basketball courts, tennis courts, and football pitches.
Outside the house, there’s also an infinity pool, with two spas and a waterfall, a large patio area, a BBQ area, a bar area, and a pool bathroom.
All these would make the new owner happy when Mike finally decided to sell the mansion in 2016.
Current Home – Las Vegas
No one expected Mike Tyson to move down the street from the house he sold.
So that’s exactly what he did.
After selling the Hangover pad, Mike Tyson got another house in the Seven Hills gated community for $2.5 million.
Talk about loyalty!
Once again, this house does not disappoint.
The new ‘Seven Hills Mansion’ is a two-story Mediterranean-style mansion spanning 10 400 square feet.
The new Seven Hills mansion has six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, two grand master suites, a media room, a wine cellar, a living room, and a dining hall.
The outdoor swimming pool is also a point of attraction for the house.
As we’ve seen, Mike Tyson’s houses are also a symbol of his status and they show us more about his evolution over the years.
Despite the setback from his crime, Tyson still has a financial firm footing.
Who knows what the heavyweight champion would acquire next?
