Listed at $1.5 million, the 5,804-square-foot home was on the market for only a day before receiving an offer. The home’s already in escrow, according to listing agent Kenneth Lowman. Such a quick close can only come from a knockout of a home, right?
Here are some pictures of Mike Tyson’s house.
The former boxer certainly pulled no punches when he renovated the mansion, adding a 25-foot lighted waterfall in the sunken great room on the main level. Other contemporary touches include the remodeled kitchen. The house boasts five bedrooms and four updated bathrooms; the master bathroom features a floating tub, an LED-lighted rain shower, and marble throughout.
“He and his wife, Lakiha Spicer did the remodel with selling in mind,” Lowman says, noting that they figured “if they made it contemporary and modern, it would be easier to sell.” Apparently they were right, as evidenced by the rapid offer. And if escrow were to fall through, Lowman says there are “three or more people in line” to offer contracts.
The buyer will be Tyson’s neighbor as well. The 49-year-old media personality and actor (he’s currently working on the Adult Swim’s “Mike Tyson Mysteries”) purchased a home double the size down the street last month for $2.5 million.
“They really love the neighborhood. They really just wanted more space,” Lowman explains.
Tyson bought the home in 2008 for $1.75 million. With all the updates, he’s going to take a hit on the investment. However, says Lowman, the former knockout king can whether the blow because he scored a good deal on his new digs.
