Oh, to have a spare $12 million to play Grand Designs with. Spare a thought for Tiger Woods' ex-wife Elin Nordegren who is tearing down her Florida mansion to build a new one.
Nordegren has just demolished the $11.7 million pad - so she can build a better home on the same plot, TMZ reports.

I liked “flase” better!
I can see from your pic what her problem with the house was...she didn’t like the exterior paint color.
In fact, the house is so close to the water it has probably suffered from some serious salt infiltration and it's possible it was without any value at all.
That’s exactly what ken was saying. The land is worth much more than the structure.
Tiger continued building the house on Jupiter Island. Google it. It’s a white stucco, very modern home. This is a different piece of property.
Fair enough. This kind of thing is so outside my personal experience, that its hard for me to conceptualize. As F. Scott Fitzgerald once wrote: “the rich are different from you and me.”
My guess is that she was sending Tiger a clear and unambiguous “screw you” message.
It’s her money and it’s her life.
I don’t blame her b/c the house looked like a old hospital
Exactly. While the house may look nice in the picture, the facts are it was a 70 year old house that probably was going to cost almost as much to renovate and modernize as it is going to cost for her to build EXACTLY what she desires.
The purchase cost was 90% the property not the aging mansion.
It’d be a hoot if the authorities refuse a building permit, in order to protect the coastal environment.
My guess is she has moved on and never gives Tiger a thought.
I think the Contracter, his sub-contractors, the labor, the suppliers, and the equipment manufacturers are recipients of some of her wealth, and that it wasn’t magically consumed.
Thank you for putting some truth out there. She Purchased this property AFTER The divorce -- this is HER house, not one that she and Tiger owned. (I apologize if I am in error, but everything I have seen other than one story says she bought this house)
We have become such a wasteful society.Shame on HER!
This thread is useless w/o pictures of Elin.
If he wanted to sell it today, doubt he'd get haff the price..if you're gonna spend that kind of $$ on a home, you'll want it the way YOU like it..
Remember when Mike Tyson spent about $30 mill on some place in CT...including the hideous renovations..he rended up sellign it for about $5 mill..and I expect it was soon torn down..
to modernize the home for today’s electrical advantages....alarms,web cams good wiring for tv/games etc...the wiring was called a fire hazzard.....the foundation tween floors was salt saturated and would not pass code ........the home was not of any measurable value
the destruction and rebuild ACTUALLY increased the property....
My guess is that she was sending Tiger a clear and unambiguous screw you message.
Please read the article before spouting off --- She BOUGHT this house AFTER the divorce; but let's not let the facts get in the way of a good BASH TIGER opportunity!
