NORTH PALM BEACH, Fla. — The oceanfront mansion Tiger Woods' ex-wife purchased for $12.3 million has been demolished and she is planning to build a new home.

The newspaper reports the mansion that was demolished was a two-story, 17,000-square-foot-home built in 1932. It had a swimming pool and an elevator.

Realtor John True of Oceanfront Realty says the lot is in the Seminole Landing development, among the most exclusive in Palm Beach County.

Nordegren divorced Woods in 2010 after learning he had a string of affairs during their five-year marriage. They share custody of the couple's two children.
