Tiger Woods's ex-wife Elin Nordegren has gotten rid of her expansive North Palm Beach estate after about two and a half years of trying, selling it to Russell Weiner, billionaire founder of Rockstar Energy Drinks for $28.6 million, reports The Real Deal. That was a pretty significant bargain for Weiner, since the property was originally listed with a much higher asking price.
How much of a bargain? When Nordegren first put it up for sale in March 2018, she was aiming for almost $50 million, and when she relisted it in November of that same year it was at $44.5 million.
At any price, the property is a waterfront gem located in the Palm Beach, Florida community of Seminole Landing, optimized for privacy, security, and luxury. Here's how it was described in a recent listing from Sotheby's International Realty Palm Beach:
"Secluded on 1.4 gated acres in Seminole Landing is an estate of understated elegance and Caribbean inspiration. The 25,878-square-foot residence takes full advantage of its oceanfront location, blurring the lines between indoors and out and allowing for the most pleasurable resortlike lifestyle. The style of British West Indies-with its breezy outdoor spaces and light-filled, view-focused interiors-offered inspiration and was adapted for relaxed, refined modern living."
Nordegren bought the property the current estate sits on back in 2011 (shortly after her $100 million divorce from Tiger) for $12.25 million, going on to completely tear down the existing house and having this one built.

As for Weiner, the property is only the latest of multiple pieces of Florida real estate he's reportedly owned over the last couple years.
