NORTH PALM BEACH — Elin Nordegren, the Swedish model who divorced an adulterous Tiger Woods in 2010, is becoming quite the real estate maven.
Nordegren, who received a $100 million divorce settlement from the legendary golfer, shortly thereafter purchased a 2-bedroom, 3-and-a-half bathroom beachfront townhouse for $1 million and listed it in October of last year for more than twice what she paid.
Turns out she was just getting warmed up.
Nordegren, 38, has now listed the sprawling North Palm Beach mansion that she also bought in the wake of the divorce for an astonishing $49.5 million.
The oceanfront home, coming in at nearly 26,000 square feet, boasts an impressive 11 bedrooms, 15 bathrooms and 3 half-baths.
Ocean views abound throughout the manor, which sits on 1.4 acres of land. The home is the very picture of luxury, featuring—among other amenities—a home theater room (complete with bar), a temperature-controlled wine cellar, a home gym that would make even the most ardent gym rats envious and a magnificent 3-story Swarovski crystal chandelier.
As one might expect from the ex of the famously sporty Woods, the estate also lays claim to a huge swimming pool, an artfully-designed pool table, a half basketball court and—of course—a putting green.
The living and sleeping quarters are no less remarkable. In the posh master bedroom alone, there are dual bathrooms, three fireplaces and a balcony overlooking the ocean. The formal living room, dining room and marble-decorated kitchen are nearly as breathtaking as the views of the Atlantic that surround them.
Nordegren erected the home on the site of a spacious 1932 house that had fallen into disrepair and that she had torn down after purchasing it for $12.2 million, donating its serviceable parts to Habitat for Humanity.
She appears to harbor no great ill will for the very unfaithful Woods, with whom she shares two children and was married for six years.
“I am in a good place,” the model shared. “Our relationship is centered around our children, and we are doing really good. We really are. He is a great father.”
Woods may be poised to re-take greatness on the golf course as well. Over the weekend, he placed 2nd in the prestigious Palm Harbor “Valspar Championship,” coming in with just one stroke over the leader.
