We've obtained photos of the 5 bedroom, 5 bath, 6,000 sq. ft. mansion where Elin Nordegren has been living with her two kids. It's near the gated community where she lived with Tiger in Windermere, Florida.


We're told she's been living in the house -- valued at a cool $2 mil -- since mid-December.

Don't care that she can afford it - just wondering why?

OMG...TO THE PEOPLE WHO ARE WORRYING ABOUT THE DECOR OF THE HOUSE...ELIN IS RENTING THE HOUSE, SHE DOESN'T OWN IT AS TMZ SAYS, MEANING THE HOUSE WAS ALREADY DECORATED AND FILLED WITH THINGS BEFORE THE FAMILY MOVED IN...ANYONE WHO HAS COMMON SENSE WOULD REALIZE, THAT ELIN WHO VALUES HER PRIVACY WOULD NOT LET PEOPLE INSIDE THE HOUSE TO TAKE PICTURES..TMZ PROBABLY GOT THE PICTURES FROM AN AD THE OWNER POSTED TO SEEK OUT SOMEONE WHO WILL RENT THE HOUSE...IN ADDITION, TO THOSE WHO ARE SAYING WHY 3 PEOPLE WOULD NEED A HOUSE THIS BIG, UMMMM,COMMON SENSE ELIN HAS MONEY, OF COURSE SHE WILL CHOOSE A FORM OF LIVING THAT HER AND THE CHILDREN ARE ACCUSTOMED TO..WHAT DO YOU EXPECT FOR ELIN AND HER KIDS TO MOVE IN A LOW PAY APARTMENT JUST TO SHOW THAT THEY ARE A COMMON FAMILY...IF SHE WAS RENTING A LOW PAY APARTMENT, I WOULD CALL HER A PHONY TO GET SOME SYMPATHY FROM THE PUBLIC, BUT I'M BETTING SHE DOESN'T CARE WHAT PEOPLE THINKS OF HER...SHE IS ONLY WORRIED ABOUT HER KIDS' SAFETY..SHE HAS THE MONEY, OR TIGER AND HER HAVE THE MONEY, SO WHY NOT SPEND IT..BESIDES I DON'T TIGER WANTS HIS CHILDREN LIVING IN A DUMP..

These houses look great from the outside, but then you see photo's of the inside and atleast for me i have to wonder what the decorater was thinking.
The inside of this house, is drab, boring, dark and just plain depressing.

Tiger's wife has alot of big decisions to make and i personally hope she has more self-respect and self-esteem then to let any man treat her like Tiger has.
I do give his wife the upmost respect she has handled herself like a lady and she is living her life and not hiding. She should not be hiding she did nothing wrong except marry a douche bag.

Is it just me, or is that property excessive for one woman and two infants? I mean, for God's sake, why would anybody need to live in a home that huge? It is such an ostentatious waste of resources.

As for why people need that much house...people that have money dont NEED anything they choose to live this way and when you work hard and make that kind of money people then you can judge. I work for a builder in Texas we dont build a home under 8,000 sq ft and less than 3 Million so this home at 6,000 sq ft is not that ginourmous. We have a home going up now at 20,000 sq ft. so people buy what they can afford and want. Who cares how big the home is are the kids being taken care of? Do they have a roof over their head no matter how big? Do they have food on the table? these are the things to be concerned with. Elin is not a gold Digger she had money and nice things before Tiger ever came along HE chased her down not vice versa!

reply to post 15 she was never well off let's be honest. She was a nanny to a golfer that suck balls before she met tiger. I'm assuming she's renting this place due to privacy.

Whoa...a bit jealous, eh?

She's not a brainless wonder nor has she exploited Tiger Woods for his money in the past. She now must have bodyguards to protect herself and those children with the explosion of her husband's secretive life and, yes, he's created a very unsafe emotional, psychological, and physical environment on behalf of Elin Woods and their children via his narcissistic sexual addiction. The way all those whores came out of the woodwork (with many living in Florida near their family home), I'd say she has plenty of reasons to leave the "house" she shared with TW and, yes, she's also providing live-in space for their bodyguards and professional caregivers so curtail the jealousy. Envy or jealousy are destructive human traits...you want the life, create the life for yourself.

Actually, I think her attorneys could sue TMZ for showing the schematics of her rented home as it, also, puts Elin and her children at risk as they have taken flight for safety reasons.

Leave her alone....

Tiger has needs, with the stress of championship golf on the line. Obviosly, Elin was not supp;ying his needs. What's the problem?

by the way -- this home looks staged with 2004 furniture and has MINIMUM Finish. NOT luxury. Not even close.

My guess the TIGER home is VERY WELL APPOINTED. this is NOT the lifestyle to which she is accustomed -- but will do in a pinch. COME ON....There is no lawyer on earth that would have her move into anything less.

AND AT least she's staying put and staying quiet. What else would you want from someone who is taking care of their children? Out clubin and doin prescription pills like the rest of the goof balls that appear in these pages?

Not to burst the bubble of TMZ's exclusive however Elin is still living in Isleworth in Windemere. The house she is living in is another house that she and Tiger both own in Isleworth. they are right up the street from each other. One is on Deacon circle and one is on Green Isle cove. Yes she has been living there since Dec when the 911 tape of Thanksgiving and her Mom's was released with the address. Security is tight there even at the back gates. Both homes are woth a few million dollars each

Not sure why SHE needs to be renting. Don't THEY have two homes in the "gated community"? And obviously he isn't living "at home". So, why does she feel she needs to live elsewhere?

And as for the house? Over rated. Nice on the outside, gaudy on the inside. Much ado about very little...just like the whole Tiger controversy!
