Tiger Woods' Swedish ex, who recently demolished the $12 million Florida property she bought after splitting from the golf star, is planning to build a new mansion on the site that will look strikingly like the old one.

Based on renderings 32-year-old Elin Nordegren filed with the Palm Beach County Department of Planning, Zoning and Building, she is planning to replace the estate she razed with another colonial-style mansion.

But sources told People magazine her decision was for more than vanity — the oceanfront 1920s house was infested with termites and not compliant with hurricane building codes — and that she gave a local Habitat for Humanity group a month to salvage usable materials and fittings before the demolition.

She now can build her dream home after making a few required tweaks to her building plans. She hired a top architect to help build her a new dream home, and every worker involved in the project is required to sign a confidentiality agreement, according to TMZ.

Aside from its nine bedrooms, two kitchens and wine cellar, the sparkling new property will feature a pair of Jacuzzis, a pool cabana and a three-bedroom guest house, according to TMZ.

It was not known when the new pad would be completed. Nordegren and her children with Woods — daughter Sam, 4, and 2-year-old son Charlie — are living in a nearby rental mansion inside the private community.

Nordegren bought the original North Palm Beach home — a six-bedroom, eight-bathroom property — in March, eight months after she finalized her divorce in 2010 from her cheating husband and received a $100 million settlement.
