Former Swedish model Elin Nordegren recently purchased her own luxurious digs in North Palm Beach, FL, not far from her ex-husband, pro golf superstar Tiger Woods.
Due to a divorce settlement stipulation that both live in close proximity so each can be involved in their children’s lives, Nordegren purchased a $12.2 million beach-front home just 10 miles from Woods’ expansive estate on Jupiter Island, FL.
Despite the short distance to her ex, the former model’s new home is everything the elusive mom wants it to be. The house is located in Seminole Landing, a gated neighborhood of 60 multi-million dollar properties. The 77-acre community has manned security, tennis courts and a beach-front golf course, in the off-chance that Woods ever stops by.
Built in 1932, the two-story house has 8 bathrooms, a 4,000-ft basement, pool, and beach access. The home’s total square footage is 17,178 square feet — plenty of room for Nordegren and her two young children.
While Nordegren purchased a home in Sweden in December 2009, this house is her first personal purchase in Florida. Previously, Nordegren held several joint real-estate assets with Woods, including a few properties on Jupiter Island, two homes in Windermere, FL, and a beach-front condo in North Palm Beach.
According to Page2Live.com, Nordegren holds a $54 million mortgage on the Jupiter estate until Woods pays his part of the divorce settlement, rumored to be upwards of $100 million.
