The oceanfront mansion Tiger Woods’ ex-wife purchased for $12.3 million has been demolished and she is planning to build a new home.

The Palm Beach Post reports that Elin Nordegren plans to build on the North Palm Beach lot she bought last year. The lot is a few miles south of Woods’ new home north of Jupiter.

The newspaper reports the mansion that was demolished was a two-story, 17,000-square-foot-home built in 1932. It had a swimming pool and an elevator.

Realtor John True of Oceanfront Realty says the lot is in the Seminole Landing development, among the most exclusive in Palm Beach County.

Nordegren divorced Woods in 2010 after learning he had a string of affairs during their five-year marriage. They share custody of the couple’s two children.




Terry have you never heard location, location, location? Elin never did live in the house . She had no intention of living in the house.She bought it just for the location.
I hope she has better taste than Tiger when it comes to architecture design. Tigers new house looks like it was built of mini bricks


What a waste!!! If she hated that badly, move!!! Even if she lost money on the sale, bet it would a lot less that tearing down the home and rebuilding. Revenge and hatred really showing its stupidity here.
