Elin Nordegren's home was infested with termites


Tiger Woods' Swedish ex, who recently demolished the $12 million Florida property she bought after splitting from the golf star, is planning to build a new mansion on the site that will look strikingly like the old one.

Based on renderings 32-year-old Elin Nordegren filed with the Palm Beach County Department of Planning, Zoning and Building, she is planning to replace the estate she razed with another colonial-style mansion.

But sources told People magazine her decision was for more than vanity -- the oceanfront 1920s house was infested with termites and not compliant with hurricane building codes -- and that she gave a local Habitat for Humanity group a month to salvage usable materials and fittings before the demolition.

She now can build her dream home after making a few required tweaks to her building plans.

Aside from its nine bedrooms, two kitchens and wine cellar, the sparkling new property will feature a pair of Jacuzzis, a pool cabana and a three-bedroom guest house, according to TMZ.

She and her children with Woods -- daughter Sam, four, and two-year-old son, Charlie -- are living in a nearby rental while their new home is constructed.
