Among common areas is a living room with vaulted ceilings and walls of windows, a great room, an office and a family room with a moon-shaped wet bar. A center-island kitchen features a second wet bar and wine closet.

A total of six bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms includes a master suite with a step-up soaking tub, a fireplace and a private balcony. There are four fireplaces in all.

Outdoors, the three-quarter-acre grounds center on a resort-style swimming pool and spa. Two detached casitas, an outdoor kitchen, fountains and various statues complete the setting.

Kenneth Lowman of Luxury Homes of Las Vegas represented both sides of the deal.

Tyson, 49, recorded 50 wins, including 44 knockouts, in 58 career bouts. He holds the record as the youngest boxer to become the undisputed world heavyweight champion.

More recently, he has appeared as himself in the film “The Hangover”  and the Adult Swim series “Mike Tyson Mysteries.”
