Tiger Woods House

OK, back to the Tiger Woods house. There are no pictures I am sure. There are tons of pictures of a very glamorous beach front home. The website Snopes.com start the page by saying:

Claim: Photographs show the beachfront home of golfer Tiger Woods.

Note the word claim. This is followed by tons of photographs of a home that is not as far as I am aware remotely connected to Tiger Woods (but is it, see below?)! Here is one of the pictures:

Claimed Tiger Woods Home

I understand the photo above to be copyright free but I won’t reproduce a pile of them as there is no point. The house looks more like it is situated in Hawaii or some such place. Also the pictures have undoubtedly been taken by a real estate agent to sell or rent the property and he would not be able to release them if it was the Tiger Woods house. However, the real home is a waterfront home (src: Telegraph UK).

Update: Dec 2009: Here is a picture by a Flickr photographer (by Phil Romans) of what is supposed to be Tiger Woods house in Maui, Hawaii 96790, USA. Maui is the second-largest of the Hawaiian Islands.

Is this the outside picture of the
interior pictures of the house above?

 
The search continues for his new house. It is, by the way, interesting to note that the Tiger Woods Foundation (his charitable foundation to help children) is located in Irvine, California. Tiger must spend some time there as it is important to him. Irvine is the opposite side of the USA to Orlando. Here is a map showing where Irvine is (for non-Americans):

In fact, Tiger Woods also owns property in Orlando, California, Wyoming and Sweden, his wife’s home country.

Update Dec 2009: It is alleged that his wife Elin has bought a house with her sister in Sweden. She has also allegedly moved out of the Tiger Woods house in Windemere to another one nearby in Isleworth. How many houses are there?

His main residence is as mentioned above planned to be on Jupiter Island, on the Atlantic coast of Florida, about 200 miles south and slightly east of Orlando. This is a perfect place as it is exclusive with limited road access. It is a long thin island about 20 miles long and 500 yards to half a mile wide. It is about 500 yards wide where Tiger Woods has his home.

Apparently, he had the original estate demolished. It cost $38 million to $48 million (we are not sure!). The whole lot was knocked down, it seems, which included: a 13-year-old mansion of 7,600 sq. feet, 3 other large houses, 2 swimming pools, tennis, basketball and volleyball courts and a mini-golf course. In fact one of the guest homes on the estate was hit by lightning after he bought the estate and destroyed – no big deal. His architect planned for a 10,000 sq ft, two-storey house. It is, it seems, going to be a modern house in design. Other features of the future Tiger Woods house are:

  • a glass lift from the huge entrance to the first floor.
  • 3 bedrooms and a master suite with 2 ensuite bathrooms.
  • basement wine cellar, cinema and games room.
  • feature windows facing the beach and the Atlantic ocean.
  • boat house, golf training studio, 3 car garage and guest house.
  • tennis court, small golf course, pool, gym and boat dock for his £10 million yacht, Privacy

He likes his privacy and justifiably and has had trees planted in abundance. Apparently fences are not allowed! Here is a picture of the bit of real estate he bought:

The picture is believed copyright free. I have marked it up & made an informed guess as to the entire estate based on the description of the properties demolished. The address is South Beach Road, Jupiter Island, Florida:

Update 1-5-09: I have added the comment of an anonymous contributor (who I thank) in the quote above. He says that the Jupiter Drive house will be his house in the near future.
