Poor Mike, He got a bad rap!
mamasaidknyouout - Are you serious? The guy is a rapist and bit some dudes ear off. I think he got what he deserved in life, and possibly more than he deserved.
That's where he'd rape his bitches.
Tyson is mentally ill, and has been manipulated and screwed over his whole life. He deserves treatment, and deserved a better childhood.
brad- Are you serious? I can't believe people still think he is guilty of the rape. Even the jurors don't think he did it since the suppressed evidence came out.
Seriously, anyone with that rape and ear history, that zebra carpet and those EQ settings deserves nothing.
ha ha ha ha lmfao eq settings rofl I an surprised you had the brains to turn your computer on let alone type in a message !!!! lol
Thanks for the photos. I love looking at abandoned housed, ghost towns, etc. How did you get them? Were you just trespassing or did you have a legit reason for being there.On another note, that house is hideous. Completely tacky and out of date. Whoever buys it will undoubtedly gut the thing and start over from scratch, hopefully this time with a decorator with good taste.
I'm sorry, where did you see EQ settings? I hope you don't mean the light dimmers....
Stealing the motto of the Three Musketeers is a pretty classy move.
I thought 50 Cent bought that house.
Can I comeover and have a swim?
Say what you will, but it looks like an amazing house. Sure, the interior decoration might need some help but the architecture is quite impressive.
gut the thing? I would totally leave the current design and add neon. Late 80's / Early 90's is totally what's up right now.
didnt 50 cent buy this house? Or did tyson have a few houses. And is this in farmington CT?
http://illicitohio.illicitohio.com/tyson.htmits in Ohio this site explains everything
These are old pics. That is Mikes old House in farmington CT that was all redone and is now 50cents house.
plants look alive and well....looks like someone has been there.
What's up with the green water?
R U Sure this isn't the set for Rocky III?
How exactly do mansions become abandoned? Doesn't Tyson still have to pay taxes on it? Why doesn't he sell it for much less just to be rid of it? I'm surprised there aren't any squatters in there.--sonyx
People defending Mike Tyson are hilarious. But not as hilarious as this video on Mike Tyson.http://youtube.com/watch?v=CwFW834Mrcc
I'd like to steal these and add another watermark. Hope you don't mind.
ROFLMAO @ the eq settings comment. bahaha
that house will have to be practically gutted before anyone moves in. Last one in the pool is a felon.
ummm....that pool's gonna need some work...
Well he raped his gold digging wife and bit of a guys ears who was repeatedly allowed to headbutt him. When he was "found" he was a punk kid in the bronx robbing people because he had nobody, and then he was thrown to the top of the world. I seriously doubt you guys could handle it or your past allows you to be any better.
LMFAO@EQ settings! Nice!
That house is not in farmington....I LIVE IN FARMINGTON AND HIS HOUSE THAT 50 BOUGHT IS ALOT NICER AND BIGGER....THAT IS ANOTHER MIKE TYSON HOUSE NOT THE HOUSE THAT 50 HAS...2 DIFFERNET HOUSES
Bad form stealing these pics. The guy that went in and shot them really put a lot of time and effort into the project and wank stains like you have no respect for that.Also, super classy move slapping your watermark over his. It's like taking someone else's painting, signing your name over their's and saying it's yours.
Do you have any idea how much work went into these pictures by the original photographer? I won't look at this site for another second, check out the real site at http://illicitohio.com/illicitohio/tyson.htm give some credit to the one who put all the work in
I feel so bad for the ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPHER...HE DID all this work and you just stole his work?? What a sick shame..I am a photographer and I would NEVER dream of ever stealing someone's eye..that's crazy...I applaud the guy who took these originally..I think you should sue the person and persons who stole these..redo your original website and put a BIG watermark across them with the DATES. ;O) As for this house..I'll give the crackhead a dollar for the house...the decore is morbid..lol
does anyone know the address? I was thinking of contacting someone to purchase it seriously!
ALl of you are freaking cry babies if the pics are stolen he should have protected himself no one else fault dude is dumb. and get off Tysons nuts i bet all of you where fan at some point in time. i dont hear anyone complaining about Kobe's rape
It's a magical palace, special fun land and I want to go there as soon as possible.
that place is awesome it could use some update but alot of it is sorta modern im surprised its in that condition i think the pool needs some algae remover lol
this crib is f*ckin pimp, luv the marble, the bis pool and the overal architecture of this place, plus the old retro look is coming bak shit i'd live there in heartbeat...and all you haters should get off tysons nuts he was the f*cking boxing legacy and most that happened to him has to do with his rough childhood
Idiots he doesnt own it anymore and its not the 50 lives in. Its in Ohio.
the mansion is in southington ohio. I was just in it last night actually. There's nothing left but some old furniture really. Two of the doors in the house are wide open and completely unlocked. The house itself is pretty tacky. (i.e. the carpet, sparkly wallpaper, furniture etc.) and in need of alot of work and updating. We also snagged a letter sitting on top of a dresser addressed to "mr. mike tyson" which was cool. If anyone has any questions about the inside of the house i'd be glad to answer them.
Is the phonebook still on the kitchen counter?, back sliding door open?,Last i saw all the audio stuff gone, some of the plants in those pics are gone 2.Also there are 2 tv's side by side as your walking into the pool room.Cool place, but with as much mold there is in that place it will probably be abandoned forever.
Is it true Holyfields ear is buried beneath the Team Tyson emblem?
pobre casa esta abandonada, el jacussi donde tyson estuvo con muchas mujeres...
Regardless of whether this property is decorated to our personal taste or not, it is still an impressive place. Beautiful private location, unusual design & lots of special touches. MT has never been a traditional kind of guy, so no reason to suppose his home would be I guess. Plus we need to remember that this was designed quite some time ago, with regard to fashions.The bedrooms shown are not what I would have envisaged for such a residence however.. or such an owner? Was the master bedroom one of the photos shown? I would have expected something a lot more plush, exotic, sumptuous, glamorous.. whatever?Does anyone know where he resides now?Thanks for sharing the great pics by the way.. very interesting :)
I love Mike,this kind of house is crap, though.wouldn't want to see the utility bill or the prop.taxes.Massive rooms, and then the bedrooms look like they're in a motel on 82nd Ave.
how are all the plants still alive?
Why on God's green earth would ANYONE live in Ohio???
I remember seeing these photos as well as a write up on the whole expedition to the house. Do you have the original source? I know it wasn't this Russian site though.
All of the people complaining about the pictures being "stolen" are retarded. The original pictures have been removed from the site that first posted them. So without them having been posted here no one would see them.
>>>Anonymous // July 24, 2008 9:12 AMI'm sorry, where did you see EQ settings? I hope you don't mean the light dimmers....it's amazing how much things people say make me wan to punch them in the face.
"i dont hear anyone complaining about Kobe's rape"Umm, maybe because this was a post about Mike Tyson's old property, not Kobe's. Just sayin'.
Iron Mike can't get wood.
I cant believe the place hasn't been trashed. What stops all the deros from just wandering in?
I think he is innocent of rape. Guily of bitting ears, sure. Rape? Doubt it. Anyone who has read the evidence knows it was all BS
wow that's creepy
ashley, you said you were just in this house?how do you get in?i would definately make the trip from NY if i knew i could get in the house
Those pics make me want to take a dump in my own pants.
My god, that place looks like someone went crazy on The Sims.
Tyson is not the issue (although it is funny). Looking at other abandoned places, it presents a picture of an economy of ruin. Why did not someone by Tyson's place? Has nothing to do with the man. take a look at: http://reliques.online.fr/detroit/detroit00.html
you can have all the money in the world, but it cannot make up for having bad taste... his interior designer should be strung up!
I'll bet that place smells like feet.
anyone know if this house is on the market or something?also surely he mustve had a gym there too?is there an outdoor pool as well?
ok well. I live in Ohio and it's definitely in Southern Ohio. Pretty awesome place I hear, a few of my friends have been there and the doors are wide open and you can walk right in..I did hear though that there was a bum living in the basement..I think it's awesome!! Abandoned houses are very interesting, and I think people are more interested because it was Tyson's house..very cool..kind of creepy though.
This house is Northeast Ohio, not southern Ohio. I drive by this house once a week.It is located in the heart of Amish country. Mike Tyson lived in Ohio as Don king has a training camp in nearby Ashtabula County.
This house is in Southington, which is in northeast Ohio not southern Ohio. I travel for work and drive by this house once a week. It is right in the heart of Amish country. Mike Tyson moved to Ohio to be close to Don King's training camp in Ashtabula county. And for those of you traveling to see this house, you should also check out Nelson's Ledges. Very cool....

who ever ses that its in southern ohio is on coke and i dont mean a-cola for real like i just drove by it the other day on my way to Geneva OH. so any way look up ur shit b4 u post a comment
It's a steal now......$1 millionmls 3045449http://www.homes.com/Real_Estate/OH/City/SOUTHINGTON
I am a photographer who has been to Mike Tyson's old Mansion twice. You can check out my pictures from the visits here:http://www.flickr.com/photos/bpdphotography/sets/72157607308583198/Hope you enjoy my photos!!
I wouldn't live in this house if they gave it to me for free.
Its actually 1.3 mill and behind $299k in back taxes, according to the auditors site. Someone posted on retardzone that he has purchased the home, and is warning away trespassers. Any ideas who purchased it?
crazy american idiots. who know nothing but complain, know nothing about living.
I think i see pants..
This is still on the market and probably worth 1/2 of what they are asking with the taxes paid.http://www.homes.com/listing/photo/108229780/3737_State_Route_534_SOUTHINGTON_OH_44470
Anyone know if there is anything left there or if it's still there? Just wanna know.
If you bring in regular mechanics to do the engineering for the machines like the pool you can find someone to do a lot of work for you and paint the place. I don't like brick work because no matter how big the project it can still not look right mathmatecally. Most remodels will bring in stuff like rock and bricks so avoid remodeling. I dont like new wood floors it will make it look like a camp or cafeteria. Keep the house as it is.
The house is still here,lol. Alot of u are funny,lol. It is on State Route 534 near State Route 305. It IS SOUTHINGTON Ohio 44470. I'm looking at it right now. The water is green because we have well water and it hasn't been treated in awhile. No one has bought it. It IS for sell. A few squatters has broke in time to time but the police clear them out. Usually within the hour. The gates and doors are locked. Not open for anyone,lol. It's a beautiful house and amazing land. The grass in the summer is a nuisance since it only gets cuts at the end of summer.
That is obviously an old house. Mike Tyson would not still have a VCR, come on dont be so stupid. These pictures are from a long time ago.
Its only still available because a black man lived in it and white's wont buy it because a black man onced own it. That's the way this country is. If Frank Sanatra owed it, it would have sold within the hour and been displayed on lifestyles of the rich and famous. SMH (phony people).
okk guys get the pictue the house is in terrible shapE. i just had a tour of it with the relator part of the house is ok conditon but some parts are unbelivable bad the kichen has some stuff left lik the pool is darniend and comtley empty cleaned out no furnutrue left there. when i went on my own ocasson there was 1 bed room upsatirs where somebody has been living people set up random furnture left around the home upsatris like it was there it was very strandge. there has been SOME renovation to the placebut no much im currently trying tobuy it im about to
I just wanted to let everybody know this house is not abandoned anymore. I am working on the house with my uncle who is a carpenter.We have done lots of work on this place over the summer and it is being lived in too. I have not met the new owners but I did mean there kids.
