Tiger Woods Home
Tiger Woods isn't the only person who loves to spend his time
in the warmth of the Florida sun, but he's one of the few who
can afford to do it in a $60 million house with a golf course
(four holes) and a running track. He has tweeted about his excitement
at the prospect of moving into the home, located in Jupiter, Florida.
The home was
planned before he and his ex-wife split up, but it won't
be a family home anymore.
After the affairs he had while he was married, it will probably
be a bachelor pad, at least for awhile. That's how Woods has redesigned
it, and it is very much state-of-the-art.
Sitting above the Atlantic Ocean, Tiger's new home has huge windows
that allow wonderful views of the sea. It even has a glass-panel
elevator in case you don't feel like using the stairs. In addition,
his master bedroom is enormous, even though he'll probably only
be using the "his" en suite and not the one for "her".
He has three more bedroom suites in the home. The detailed plans
of his house by its architect also show a wine cellar and a possible
play space for Charlie and Sam, the Woods' children.
You'll find four buildings
adjoining the main mansion, and these include a
large guesthouse, a detached garage, a studio for golf training
and a boathouse. The boathouse will give a berth for "Privacy",
Tiger's 155 foot yacht. The property also boasts a diving pool
with a lap lane, a gym and a tennis court. It will be much different
inside with just Tiger present or he and his kids entertaining
Woods wrote in his blog that be is especially excited to use his
3.5 acre golf course, located conveniently in his back yard. He
designed the facility for short game practice, and watched carefully
over its construction, to make sure it had everything he wanted
included. It has six bunkers and four greens, along with differing
types and depths of sand, a putting green and a video center.
He can use a 7-iron if there isn't any wind, and he can even hit
shots from his studio on the second floor.
Tiger's marriage of five
years was shattered in late 2009, shortly after
a very strange car crash near his home in Orlando on November
27 of that year. His then-wife, who was a former swimwear model,
left him and then would file for divorce later. She has spoken
out somewhat about the relationship that she and Woods shared
for years. She admitted that she was embarrassed and blindsided
when she realized that not only had Tiger been cheating, but with
more than one woman.
Nordegren, the ex-Mrs. Woods said that she had never suspected
anything, although she was home more with pregnancies and children
in the last several years. Woods and his ex-wife did attempt to
work through the problems their marriage had, but they agreed
to split after getting back together proved too difficult and
painful. So Tiger's den is a bittersweet home, as it carries dreams
of the life they would have shared together.
