Mike Tyson puts his Las Vegas-area home into the ring

Mike Tyson is ready to knock out a sale of his old home in suburbs of Las Vegas.

After buying a new home in gated Seven Hills, a golf course community in Henderson, Nev., this year, the boxing great has put another home in the affluent community up for sale at about $1.5 million.

Built in 2001 and remodeled this year, the contemporary-style house weighs in with five bedrooms, five bathrooms and three fireplaces in more than 5,800 square feet of living space.

Two floors of living have an industrial vibe with exposed ductwork, vaulted ceilings and a great room with a metal skybridge that connects the upper levels of the home.

Other highlights include a mix of vibrant marble, slate and hardwood finishes, a center-island kitchen, a walk-in wine room and a wet bar. The master suite sports chandelier lighting, a glassed-in steam shower and a freestanding soaking tub.

Outdoors, landscaped grounds of more than a third of an acre center on a swimming pool with two spas and a waterfall feature. A modern porte-cochere marks the entrance to the home.

Tyson bought the house eight years ago for $1.75 million, records show. In January, he paid $2.5 million for an Italian-style villa of more than 10,400 square feet of living space.

Kenneth Lowman of Luxury Homes of Las Vegas holds the current listing. The exact price is $1,499,999.
