Tiger Woods' ex-wife Elin Nordegren has demolished her $12 million Florida mansion in order to create her own dream home, which may end up being a honeymoon pad for her and new boyfriend Jamie Dingman.
Nordegren, 32, called in a team to tear down the six bedroom mansion in North Palm beach earlier this week.
'It was a beautiful place.'
Nordegren bought the gorgeous mansion in March for $12.3 million, one year after receiving a $100 million divorce settlement from professional golfer Tiger Woods.
Apparently, however, the 17,000-square foot house, built in 1932 and sporting an in-ground pool and newly added elevator, just wasn't suiting the Swedish former model... perhaps because the original property is part of a development that houses the famous Seminole Golf Course.
It was a beauitful place, realtor John True, who toured the mansion at a Halloween charity event, told The Palm Beach Post. Incredible landscaping, fantastic ocean frontage.
I heard the original plan was to renovate it, True said. But once they started, I heard they decided to tear it down.
Nordegren to Design 'Dream Home'
According to TMZ, Nordegren demolished the gorgeous mansion in order to construct a new dream home, hiring a top-notch architect and even requiring workers to sign a confidentiality agreement about the details of her planned mansion.
Elin Nordegren recently found love again with billionaire businessman Jamie Dingman, who she started dating in July 2011.
After years of marriage to a man who cheated on her with multiple women, Nordegren may have wanted a brand-new home in order to start afresh with her new love, as well as her two children with Tiger Woods.
While she waits for the demolition to be over and a new home to be build, Nordegren is reportedly shacking up at a rented mansion inside the gated North Palm Beach community.
Tiger Woods still lives in the couple's former home in Orlando while his planned luxury home on Jupiter Island is being completed.
