It may have taken a few months, but Tiger Woods has finally sold his Corona Del Mar condo. Tiger listed the condo back in April, and in retrospect, a celebrity home selling in just a few months is actually pretty fast. Sometimes, these celebrity homes sit on the market for years before the price takes a dramatic cut, or someone shells out.
In this case, it took only a couple months for Woods to lower the asking price. A couple of months after that, he sold it for $2,213,875—about half a million dollars less than what he paid in 2004.
Why did Woods sell the home? Maybe this is part of his effort to start over. It’s been a while since his splash in the tabloids, which we won’t discuss any further, and perhaps this home isn’t something he cares to bring into his new life.
Enough gossip—let’s get onto the home. To be honest, we expected a bit more from Woods. When we heard he had listed a luxury condo in California, we expected the works. The place is nice, just not Tiger nice.
Located at 2616 Ocean Blvd., the three-bedroom, three-bathroom condo has a beach view, is made of mostly stucco and is just super plain. Of course, it has soaring ceilings, a bunch of patios and balconies, and about 2,000 square feet of living space.
Sounds like a regular California condo to us, but perhaps we should be commending Woods for not being so extravagant like other celebrities. Maybe he doesn’t need his own home theatre or gym, or a wine cellar that looks like it belongs in the basement of an ancient castle. All that said, Woods does own another home, which is currently his primary residence, on the opposite coast in Florida, and it’s on a private golf course…so that one is probably outrageous.
Is Woods searching for another new home to replace this one? We’re not sure, but we’ll be keeping an eye out!Google+
