Now that golf superstar Tiger Woods is focusing on becoming a better father, husband and person (hey Tiger — what about becoming a better driver?) — it appears Tiger and wife Elin’s real estate assets will stay put for awhile.
There is Tiger Woods’ Jupiter Island estate (photo above), which is a combination of several addresses: 450 S Beach Rd, Jupiter, FL, 466 S. Beach Rd, Jupiter, FL, and 467 S. Beach Rd, Jupiter, FL, and Tiger’s Windermere home (where Tiger’s car accident happened in the exclusive Isleworth golf community). Then, there’s another Windermere home, and a condo in North Palm Beach. And this is just in Florida.
Tiger’s Jupiter homes
According to Page2Live, Woods’ Jupiter real estate collection has been a work in progress since he bought the homes in 2004. First, he had the homes leveled, then Elin helped design the residence, which is nearly 10,000 sq ft and has an adjacent 6,000 sq ft gym (photo above). It is still under construction.
Palm Beach-area real estate agents feel he spent about $55 million, and will be lucky to get dollar-for-dollar back, if the Woods’ decide to split. Just recently, NFL’s Tampa Bay owner Malcolm Glazer sold his Palm Beach home for $24 million, considered a landmark property vs. Tiger’s Jupiter Island estate, which many real estate pros feel he may have over invested in.

Elin’s Sweden Property
Now, to add to the Woods’ real estate collection, Tiger’s wife Elin Woods just purchased a home in Sweden.
On Dec. 1, Tiger’s wife, Elin, purchased an old farmhouse on Faglaro, a small island near Stockholm, only reachable by boat (home is on the far right in photo above). The price is reportedly $2.2 million. No one knows if this deal was underway prior to Tiger’s “transgressions” or whether Tiger is part of the transaction. Since it is remote, it is possible the couple will try to escape the media blitz on the island. Or, it could just be a providential purchase by Elin.
The home is one of approximately 140 properties on the island — mostly summer homes — and it has six bedrooms.

Meanwhile, one of Tiger’s alleged girlfriends, Jamie Jungers is apartment-shopping in New York, looking at 1 Irving Place , which is reportedly owned by real estate developer Elie Hirschfeld who is presently selling his East Hampton estate for $25 million.
