Elin Nordegren New House Construction in Florida Near Completion
Tiger Woods' ex-wife, Elin Nordegren is rebuilding a mansion in Jupiter Island, Florida where her previous one once was. That is before she tore down the $12.2 million mansion in January 2012 to meet contemporary hurricane building codes.
That should be no worries of a former model has plenty of cash to spare after receiving around $110 million in her divorce settlement from husband of five years and PGA golfer, Tiger Woods.
In this exclusive, private community in Jupiter, Florida called Seminole Landing, her mansion is slowly taking shape.
This new mansion of Tiger Woods' ex-wife, Elin Nordegren sits on a 21,000 square foot plot. Daily Mail reports it will be equipped with its own wine room and movie theater and will also house an Olympic-sized swimming pool, waterfalls, Koi pond, spa, gym, when it is completed. The master bedroom suite will be 1,200 sq ft and sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean.
Palm Beach Florida Real Estate agent, Jeff Lichtenstein estimates that, "she'll be in the house within six months. Nine months at the outside. The roof is being put on right now so it's not that far away." She will move into the property with the couple's two children Sam, 5, and Charlie, 3.
While Lichtenstein is not Nordegren's real estate agent, he's been keeping a close eye on the construction of Tiger Woods' ex-wife's mansion.
It's appearing to be a 3-story mansion, but not confirmed if the first floor is living space or not. It may be just concrete poured to protect the mansion from direct hurricane force winds since it's directly on the ocean.
Reportedly, the original house was built in 1932 and the 32-year old says it was infested with ants and termites, so she had it tore down to rebuild this new, similar layout, $12 million mansion.
On Lichtenstein's Real Estate blog he questions, "Curiosity abounds in the community as to why she is building such a large home for just her small family, as she spends much of the year overseas in her native land of Sweden. Elin originally bought an old house. Somehow unnoticed was the fact that it was infested with termites. How this happened, no one is saying, but the house had to be torn down. That’s the back story on this new house construction."
He continues by making the point, "Smartly, she bought directly on the ocean where houses soar in price over the years."
Elin Nordegren proudly flies the Swedish and American flags outside her home, even while it's under construction.
Earlier this month, it was rumored the couple were reconciling with reports Woods had asked his ex-wife to remarry him over the holidays. Yesterday, a source close to the golfer told Star magazine he is actually dating champion skier Lindsey Vonn and he thinks she's the one.
