In a related note, you golfing fans (I am one) may be interested to know:
|Two years after buying a £23 million Florida waterfront estate (on Jupiter Island), Tiger Woods has bulldozed virtually everything to make way for an executive "mega home".|
Woods, the world's highest earning sportsman, snapped up 10 immaculately-appointed acres of what Forbes magazine has dubbed "The world's most expensive zip code" and ripped it all up so he could start again.
The existing 13-year-old mansion has gone, as have three other large houses, two swimming pools, basketball, tennis and volleyball courts and a mini-golf course on the estate on Jupiter Island.
Woods's architects have drawn up plans for a 10,000 sq ft, two-story house that - on paper, at least - wouldn't look out of place in the average business park.
A glass lift runs from the grand entrance to the first floor where there will be three bedrooms and a master suite with his-and-her bathrooms. A basement will house a large wine cellar and possibly a cinema and games area. Adjoining the house, which features huge windows, will be four other new buildings, including a boat house, golf training studio, three-car garage and guest house.
Outside, there will be a tennis court, gym, pool, lap lane and a small golf course. A pair of boat docks will provide a berth for Woods's 155ft, £10 million yacht, "Privacy".
Scores of trees have been re-planted and heavy landscaping will provide the Woods family with the privacy they require on an island which bans high boundary walls.
