(Newser) – Elin Nordegren is renovating a $2.3 million "paparazzi-proof" Swedish island mansion, reports the Daily Beast in a look at Nordegren's new life. Rumors are swirling that Tiger Woods' ex-wife will move back to her home country, and her late 2009 purchase of the secluded mansion—it can only be accessed by ferry or, during the winter, by hydrocopter—seems to support that theory. In addition to the estate, which has its own private beach and mini-harbor, Nordegren owns a $2 million penthouse apartment in nearby Stockholm.

She can also retreat from the paparazzi in her mother's 16th-century Swedish castle. Or perhaps, Radar reports, she'd rather stay in the States. Nordegren spent her Labor Day weekend looking at South Florida real estate with her children and mother. "Elin plans on keeping the children's nannies," says a source. "But she would prefer to get a property with either a separate guest house or a mother-in-law suite, off the main area of the home."
