David Beckham and Posh Spice Want to Sale Their Beckingham Palace
Looking for a new house? Beckingham Palace might suits you.
With the intention to make America their permanent home, David and Victoria Beckham are reportedly put their seven bedroom UK country mansion for sale.
Eleven years ago, the property in Sawbridgeworth, Hertfordshire was bought for £2.5million. The 24-acre estate have had been valued by estate agents, and it is now estimated to be worth as much as £18million. Sources close to the stars say they are keen to sell but it is not yet on the market.
The couple have spent more than £18million renovating it over the years. It has an indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a petting zoo, recording studio, a snooker room, a gym, and state-of-the-art floodlit tennis courts. The garden has three £10,000 themed-gazebos, and they have also installed a 52ft garden pavilion with a marble floor, which houses a 4ft barbecue that cost £70,000.
Since 35-year-old David joined LA Galaxy football club, and moving to another country, the Beckhams have adapted easily to life in LA. A close family friend shared, “Frankly they cannot see themselves ever returning to make London their full-time base. The children are settled, speak with American accents and David and Victoria are immersed in the laid-back Los Angeles way of life.”
The Beckhams already own a £11 million house in Beverly Hills, as well as a £2million château in France and a luxury apartment in Dubai, and decided running a UK mansion was a needless expense. Sources say they plan to buy a central London townhouse and are considering options in Chelsea or Belgravia but this will simply be for UK visits rather than living in.
The soccer star is currently injured so unable to play but his contract with LA Galaxy runs for another three years and is worth an estimated £12million. Meanwhile, Mrs Beckham herself has now carved a career as a fashion designer and will take her new collection to New York Fashion Week on September 12th.
Well then, if you’re interested… get your money ready, future buyers!
