The imposing residence, which is famous for being the site where the former boxer lost his fierce tigress, dropped in value considerably after a year on the market.
Monica Turner, who was married to ex-boxer Mike Tyson, has been trying to sell her imposing three-story mansion in Bethesda, Maryland for more than a year, but has so far found no one interested in buying it.
At first, he announced it at $ 8.5 million, but the lack of offers caused him to considerably reconsider his financial claims.
He is now asking for $ 5,250,000, that is, three million less than what he intended to receive in May 2020.
“Welcome to this exquisite gated community located on the outskirts of Washington in Bethesda, Maryland. Deceptively large in scale, and tucked away on a private cul-de-sac in the prime residential enclave of The Greens, one of Montgomery County’s most desirable neighborhoods, ”is part of the messenger with which the RE / MAX real estate portal seeks to finalize the sale.
The 18,244-square-foot mansion, built-in 1988, is equipped with seven bedrooms, eight full baths, and three half baths.
It also has a lobby, gourmet kitchen, dining room, living room, main room, piano room, library, bar, TV room, billiard room, sauna, steam shower, massage room, cinema room, gym, room games, elevator, terraces, garage for three vehicles, among other rooms
Outside, in its 2.41 acres of land, it has extensive green areas, a swimming pool with spa area, Jacuzzi, a terrace, a basketball court, and various fountains.
In addition to these attractions, the mansion is also located just steps from the Congressional Country Club golf course, a site famous for having seen some of the best golfers in the world pass.
The property was acquired by Mike Tyson and Monica Turner in 1995, but after their divorce, they agreed that she would keep it.
The main reason she decided to get rid of the property is that she thinks it is too big for her alone, as her youngest son is only a few months after graduating from college.
The mansion where Mike Tyson had a tigress
The house not only attracts attention for its facilities and its views, but also for having been the site where Mike Tyson lost his famous tigress Kenya, who ran away from his home and was found minutes later on the property of a neighbor.
Iron Mike, as he is also known, bought the Bengal tigress for $ 60,000 shortly after his release from prison.
Kenya lived with Mike Tyson for about 16 years, until one day she tore off a person’s arm, this incident being the cause of her deciding to part with her faithful companion.
