Former model Elin Nordegren, who was once married to pro golfer Tiger Woods, is selling her 11-bedroom megamansion in North Palm Beach, FL, for $49.5 million.Nordegren, 38, negotiated a $100 million divorce settlement from Woods in 2010, after the golfer crashed his car outside the couple’s house following a fight in 2009. She spent a little over $12 million to buy this property in 2011. After the purchase, the 1920s-era mansion on the land was bulldozed and a new home was built.Completed in 2014, the new 25,000-square-foot home is located on 1.4 waterfront acres in Seminole Landing, an upscale gated community south of the Seminole Golf Club, which ranked 23rd in Golf Magazine’s latest list of the 100 best golf courses on the planet
The house was designed for “relaxed, refined modern living,” with its architects drawing inspiration from the tropical estates found hundreds of miles south, in the British West Indies, the listing reads. True to form, the house blends indoor and outdoor living, with large windows that capitalize on the uninterrupted views of the Atlantic Ocean.
The living room features a floor-to-ceiling folding glass wall that opens fully, bringing in the sea breeze. Just off the living room, the kitchen has a marble chef’s island with ample storage, and a second marble island with seating for four. There’s an informal dining area in the kitchen, lounge, and second folding glass wall, which opens to an outdoor table. Adjacent to the living room is an office with a large window to the backyard and ocean.Just outside the living room, there’s a resort-style pool, spa, and stone deck amid mature palm trees. The backyard also features a wide, flat lawn that could easily accommodate a tented gala. There’s a covered cabana with wet bar and pool table, and a lounge area upstairs.Back inside, one of the home’s staircases features a unique crystal chandelier that cascades all the way down to the floor, creating a waterfall effect.Upstairs, the master bedroom has a vaulted ceiling with exposed white beams, large windows to the ocean, a sitting area, and fireplace. The master bathroom has a fireplace, and a soaking tub in the window.Elsewhere, there’s a delightful, nautical-themed bedroom with four built-in bunk beds and a lighthouse mural. Another bedroom has a floor-to-ceiling mural of the beach, with a surfer catching a massive wave. That room has a nautical-themed window seat with wraparound views of the ocean.There’s a home theater, gym with a mirrored wall, expansive wine cellar, and a high-capacity catering kitchen.
Nordegren and Woods were married in 2004 and have two children together. In 2014, she graduated from Florida's Rollins College with a bachelor’s degree in psychology, and was given the Hamilton Holt Outstanding Senior Award for her near-perfect GPA. She’s months away from graduating with a master’s degree.
