Tiger Woods has purchased a 10-acre Jupiter Island estate, paying a record-breaking $38 million for the waterfront compound. Combining three separate parcels, the deeds into three separate legal entities were dated January 26, 2006.

The parcels stretch from the intracoastal waterway on the west to the Atlantic Ocean on the east. The property includes two boat docks and four houses. Historically, new owners on Jupiter Island tear down existing improvements and rebuild in their own image. Look for Tiger Woods and his wife, the former Elin Nordegren, to do the same. The main house on the property is about 13 years old.

Tax assessment of the three parcels combined for 2005 was $21,567,710. Look for these assessments and those of the other luxury residential properties on Jupiter Island to increase for 2006 based on these transactions.

"It just seems like every time you turn around there's a new high price that's been hit," Assistant Martin County Property Appraiser Mike Fribourg said.
