On the cusp of spring 2019, Elin Nordegren—ex-wife of golf pro Tiger Woods—listed this sizeable and extremely glamorous waterfront estate in South Florida for nearly fifty million dollars. November of last year saw the property’s ask drop to just under forty-five mil. It took over nine months from that point for the property to sell, but sell this month it did—although it closed at well under $30 million.
The mansion’s architecture borrows from Caribbean and Balinese designs. The symmetrical façade is grandly expressive, with a double-stair rising to a second-floor entry, towering oversize windows, storm shutters, and a second-floor balcony.
The home’s interior living area measures 26,000 sq. ft. Caribbean design elements include open ceilings, plank ceilings, and cane wall covering. The master bath is particularly appealing, with a solarium soaking tub alcove, a hipped ceiling, and a sitting area with a corner in-wall gas fireplace.
There’s plenty of glam on display, though. The three-story chandelier that illuminates the central staircase is nearly a conspicuous installation; it’s a remarkable embellishment. Amenities in the mansion include a—massive—home fitness center, and a home theater with velvet curtains and seating.
The lot features a broad lawn that gently slopes down to the beach; a covered pavilion with a marble wet bar and a glass balustrade takes in the tranquil ocean view.
The property’s buyer was energy drink czar Russell Weiner, who has listed a host of properties in California and Florida over the past few years. He apparently couldn’t pass up a good deal.
