Home Depot, meet Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous.
After reports that Elin Nordgren was demolishing the $12-million Florida home she bought only last year, now comes word that those dozens of items salvaged from the 17,000-sq.ft. residence near North Palm Beach are now for sale at the Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore in Stuart, Fla.
According to the charitable organization’s website, among what is available from the home of the former Mrs. Tiger Woods are kitchen cabinetry “finished with a light wash that gives a distressed finish,” starting at $89 per unit, and a mantelpiece of “glowing maple wood and custom carved stunning fish accent supports” for $3,700.
Comparable unfinished mantels can start for as much as $6,000, says the listing.
A vintage brass and iron staircase railing from the house – which was torn down for not meeting hurricane standards and because of bugs – is going for $1,800, while chandeliers range in price from $22 to $1,300 (the pricier ones with Swarovski Crystal balls).
The store also has “many ‘common’ products from the Seminole Landing DeConstruction project. We have faucets, vanities, bamboo, bath lights and much more” – although record crowds were reported at the store on Tuesday.
The organization also lists on its website the valuable work done by this chapter of Habitat for Humanity, and notes, “Since its inception in 1986, Habitat for Humanity of Martin County has built 94 homes in Hobe Sound, Indiantown, Jensen Beach, Port Salerno and Stuart.”
