Elin Nordegren is putting her massive divorce settlement from Tiger Woods to good use -- to the tune of a luxury mansion in West Palm Beach.

The former Swedish nanny -- who is mother to Woods' children Charlie, 3, and Sam, 5 -- totally demolished an original house after buying it for a cool $12.2 million in January 2011. In its place, she's constructing a modern 21,000-square-foot mansion that will include a gym, wine room, movie theater and a huge 1,200-square-foot master bedroom with views of the Atlantic Ocean.

Celebuzz has a sneak peek into what she has planned for the home that has been years -- and millions -- in the making.

According to building plans obtained from the records department of the planning, zoning & building division in Palm Beach County, Nordegren's two-story abode will include an attached pool cabana, a guesthouse, an understructure basement and a swimming pool with adjoining spa.

The pool measures almost 70 feet long and 20 feet wide and will include a play pool area. Nearby will be a fire pit built on a special deck, and cabana with spa featuring therapy jets.

To make the most of Florida's stunning sunsets, architects have even built special sun ledges above the pool level to afford ocean views. Also on tap: koi ponds around an ornate fountain, which will be lit up by colorful LED lights.

 

Inside, the mansion will boast a large dining and living room, with another area set aside to offer both views of her pool and the ocean. There will also be an adjacent guest house with a storage area for pool equipment, plus various powder rooms.

Nordegren -- who has been flying the Swedish flag over her new mansion -- was criticized for destroying the original property that was built in 1932. However, the 32-year-old insisted that it would have taken too much work to restore the home, which was not hurricane-proof and infested with bugs.

The charitable Swede even allowed Habitat for Humanity of Martin County to go through the structure and salvage tens of thousands of dollars worth of cabinets, hardware and fixtures.

 

Nordegren famously divorced Woods in August 2010 after it was revealed that he had cheated on her with multiple women during their five-year marriage. For her troubles, she netted a $100 million divorce settlement.

But she hasn't left the golf superstar behind completely: Woods also has a new place to call home in Jupiter, Fla. -- about 30 miles away from Nordegren.

What's your favorite part of Elin's mega-mansion? Is it the koi pond, or the sun ledges? Tell us what your dream house would be like, below.

    Geography lesson, her view will be that of the stunning sunrises, not sunsets. The property faces east. The view to the west will be of West Palm Beach, far from stunning.
