A London palace befitting the Beckham brand

A London palace befitting the Beckham brand

The Beckhams’ London home has a grand façade that has not been altered for 150 years. The footballer David and his singer, model and fashion entrepreneur wife Victoria are believed to have spent £30million for the London house on one of the smartest Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea streets. The renovation budget is understood to be £5million.

It contains more than 9,000 square feet of space and is one of the largest houses in the area, with eight bedrooms and just seven bathrooms.
Victoria’s chosen interior designer is her friend, Kelly Hoppen. The mansion has four nail bars, just in case the Beckhams have a group of guests to stay. The kitchen is restaurant-standard and the gym has a fish tank.


Listed building status

The property has a Grade II-listing so the Beckhams are prevented from making any significant alterations to the exterior. However, inside the five-story house it’s a different story.

At the bottom, on the lower ground floor, a spacious gym and massage area has replaced the pool that had been installed many years earlier. The aim is to create an atmosphere like that of a luxury spa.

As well as the fish tank, the space contains four massage beds and a cascading water feature on one wall. Nearby is a luxury powder room with mirrors.

There is a playroom for the Beckhams’s three sons, Brooklyn, Romeo, and Cruz, and daughter Harper. There is also a small study, a larder and a utility room.

On the ground floor is a family living room, a home office for Victoria and a spacious kitchen and dining room, which will be at the heart of the house.


Bedroom area

On the home’s first floor, which by itself measures 2,000 sq.ft., is dominated by the couple’s bedroom area, with the master bedroom and bathroom occupying half the area. The rest of the space has been given over two - his and her - dressing rooms.

Victoria’s dressing room – the larger of the two – incorporates a wooden floored catwalk runway. The wardrobes are designed to be walked into and have electrically operated runners so a button can be pressed and the garment in question will be pulled out and presented to the chooser. There is also an area for Victoria’s hairdressing, manicure and make-up. Outside is a terrace, which overlooks the 100ft oriental garden.

The second floor is also dominated by bedrooms: there are three with ensuite bathrooms. These are where the boys sleep.

At the very top of the house - on the third floor - is David’s snug room with a pool table and mini-bar. It also contains three guest bedrooms, with ensuite bathrooms. One has a dressing room. In the grounds outside there is another small house for even more guests.

They sold their 12-acre estate in Hertfordshire before buying the new London house. The price they received was reportedly £12million. But the sale also involved David and Victoria’s sports cars and the family's holiday home in France, which netted £2.6 million.
