Tiger Woods’ ex-wife Elin Nordegren is moving on with her life, and that apparently involves tearing down her old mansion (which she purchased in 2010) and building a new one.
The Before/After photos below show what the grounds looked like prior to January 5, when the $12 million existing mansion was apparently torn down to make room for a new one. Sources say Elin Nordegren has plans to build her “own dream home,” that most likely will have nothing to do with Tiger Woods, the ex that famously cheated on her with an array of women.
Elin Nordegren, who has custody of the couple’s two children, Sam Alexis Woods, 5, and Charlie Axel Woods, 3, received $100 million from her 2010 divorce settlement with Tiger Woods.
The original house, which is located in the exclusive Seminole Landing development near North Palm Beach and built in 1932, had 17,000-square-feet, two stories, eight bathrooms, an in-ground pool and an elevator. A listing for a house on the same street as Nordegren has an asking price of $18.9 million.
Sources say Elin Nordegren had initially intended to renovate, but once the plans were started decided to tear it down instead.
Tiger Woods lives in the couple’s former home in Orlando, while his luxury home in on Jupiter Island is being completed.
