Tiger Woods, one of the world’s richest sports stars, is truly living the high life. With a net worth of over £850 million, Woods has no shortage of money to spend on extravagant purchases. And his most impressive buy has to be his stunning Florida home on Jupiter Island, worth a staggering £41 million. Let’s take a tour inside this exclusive mansion and see how the golfing legend enjoys his life of luxury.
Woods purchased the property for £33 million in 2006 and decided to build his own custom home on the 12-acre land. The new digs consist of a 3,300-square-foot living quarters and a 6,400-square-foot multi-purpose building. The latter includes a world-class gym, a media room, a wine cellar, and a lift. The two buildings are connected by a glass-covered walkway. Additionally, the estate features a guesthouse, a garage, and a large mooring for Woods' boats.
Woods' mansion is filled with luxurious amenities. There's a 100ft lap pool, a diving pool, a tennis court, and even a golf studio. Inside the home, he has an oxygen therapy room, a basement games room, and a private cinema theatre. There's also a guesthouse for family and friends to stay in. And the location is just as exclusive as the property itself, with neighbors such as Bill Gates, Celine Dion, and fellow golfer Greg Norman.
Living with his Ex
Woods' ex-girlfriend Erica Herman lived with him in the mansion for six years until their split in 2023. She later filed a lawsuit claiming £25 million in damages, alleging that Woods tricked her into leaving the home. Woods' lawyers, on the other hand, argued that she lived at the property as a 'guest'. Eventually, the lawsuit was dropped by Herman.
A Long Journey
Woods' luxurious mansion is certainly a far cry from his humble beginnings. He grew up in a three-bedroom bungalow in Cypress, California, with his parents Earl and Kultida. The bungalow, spanning 1,500 square feet, is now considered a historical monument. Before his father's death in 2006, Earl vowed to turn the property into a museum rather than selling it.
Staying in California
In 2004, Woods purchased a two-story condo in California overlooking the ocean. The property, worth £2.2 million, featured three bedrooms and two bathrooms. It is believed that Woods spent time with his mistress Jamie Jungers in this home. However, in 2012, he decided to sell it, listing it for £1.8 million.
Woods eventually settled in Florida, where many golf stars frequent. His first Florida home was in Windermere, a £3.8 million property in the private gated community of Isleworth Golf & Country Club. The spacious 7,940 square foot house boasted seven bedrooms and seven and a half bathrooms. It was in this home that Woods famously crashed his SUV into a fire hydrant and a tree, just days after rumors of his affair with Rachel Uchitel surfaced.
Tiger Woods certainly knows how to live, and his Florida mansion is a true testament to his incredible success in the world of golf.
