“It was a beautiful place, incredible landscaping, fantastic ocean frontage,” said Realtor John True, who was at the house on Halloween for a charity event after work had begun.

“I heard that the original plan was to renovate. But once they started, I heard they decided to tear it down.” The house was not up to code for current wind and hurricane mitigation, and would have been too costly to retro-fit for the regulations.

Elin Nordegren is living in the San Remo condominiums, an oceanfront development in Juno Beach, while her new home is being built, according to local officials who asked not to be named. Woods continues to live in his home outside of Orlando, awaiting completion of his Jupiter Island mansion.

The 17,000-square-foot house, built in 1932, was two stories, with eight bathrooms, an in-ground pool and an elevator.

Seminole Landing is on the east side of U.S. 1, just north of PGA Boulevard in unincorporated Palm Beach County, according to county records.

The 77-acre development is among the top five most exclusive communities in Palm Beach County, said True, owner of Oceanfront Realty in Juno Beach.

The gated development is the home of the private Seminole Golf Course.

The course, built in 1929, was rated the 13th-best golf course in America last year by Golf Digest magazine. No Florida course ranked higher.

Most of the houses in Seminole Landing are on at least 1 acre.

A listing for a house on the same street as Nordegren has an asking price of $18.9 million.

The demolition resulted in a huge donation to the Martin County chapter of Habitat for Humanity, thanks to Nordegren’s generosity. The value of the salvage is estimated at $300K, and includes appliances, original fixtures, hardware, and miscellaneous items. Martin County’s Habitat chapter is one of the few affiliates in Florida with a fulltime deconstruction team.

Nordegren, 32, divorced Woods in 2010 after evidence emerged he had affairs with a string of women during their five-year marriage.

She has custody of their two young children.
