Elin Nordegren bulldozed her $12 mn mansion as it was beyond repair

London, Fri, 20 Jan 2012 ANI

London, Jan 20 (ANI): Elin Nordegren had to demolish her 12-million-dollar home without her ever moving in because it was in such a bad state of repairs, say her realtor.


Tiger Woods' ex-wife Nordegren ordered a demolition team to level the house so that she could build a new home from scratch at the Florida waterfront property.


The former nanny, who received a 100-million-dollar divorce settlement from the golfer after his multiple affairs, was criticised for leveling the 80 year old home.


But her realtor Chappy Adams has said the plan was always to flatten the home as it was beyond repair.


President of Illustrated Properties, Adams said that 33-year-old Nordegren knew from the start that the white timber framed house would have to go.


"A lot of people were upset, asking, 'how could she tear down a 12 million dollars house?'" the Daily Mail quoted Adams as saying.


"Well the house was always intended to be torn down. Even before she looked at it, we knew anyone who would purchase it would have to tear it down.


Adams said that the most recent owner barely lived in the home in North Palm Beach and upkeep was slim to none.


"When you have a home on the ocean, the salt water, the corrosion, really takes a toll on the home. The home had fallen into disrepair, the roof needed to be replaced, the shutters were falling apart and the pool was not functioning," he said.


Adams said that the home was only worth 2-million-dollar while the land with its views of the Atlantic Ocean was worth 10 million dollars.


He said it would have cost over 20 million dollars to repair the home and secure insurance for the seafront property.


Before ordering in demolition crews Nordegren allowed a local charity to take what they wanted from the building.


Adams said that Nordegren's new home will be ready in 18 months. (ANI)
