Mike Tyson's Abandoned Ohio Mansion

Mike Tyson’s abandoned Ohio mansion is not only one of the finest examples or early-American pimp but it’s hard to find someone with that taste with enough money to buy a multi-million dollar mansion.

The mansion was purchased by Paul Monea (of the Taebo informericals) and was seized shortly after by feds who are investigating Monea for a money laundering scheme. By then the property was already deserted and he paid only $1.3 million dollars.

As of right now the Monea family owes in excess of $231,000 from 2007 to be collected in 2008.$41,138.75 is the total due for 2007. The taxes apparently have not been paid in about 5-6 years. The house was listed on eBay by either Monea or Mr. Tyson back in 2005 for $3 million. The house is currently appraised at $2.3 million.

The Moneas are unlikely to ever pay their back taxes so it is waiting for the IRS to claim the property and auction it off at some time in the future.

The 60 acre property is located in a remote area of Ohio in Southington. It features a 10,000 square foot house with five bedrooms, an indoor pool and overdone bathrooms. It’s well appointed with white tiger stripe carpet, gold plating and boasts a large facility for lions that Tyson used to keep as pets. He once bragged he’d spar with them to keep in shape.

Here is the address in case you are curious:

3737 State Route 534, Southington, Ohio

I would like to put water heaters in each bedroom and remodel the house simply by changing the roof and some of the windows and the designs where the windows are.

I noticed that the Lamborgini VT model seems to have U.S. specifications on it but I want to indicate that I noticed that after smogging the cars in that performance seem to be easy to destroy and impossible to imoprove. The 2009's dont seem that way I would stick with those instead of the smaller one like VT's bye buddie.
