Rumors have surfaced that David and Victoria Beckham are in the process of selling their magnificent home âBeckingham Palace,â and moving to Los Angeles permanently. Get the scoop along with a bunch of fantastic photos below.
The Beckhams originally acquired their U.K. mansion aka âBeckingham Palaceâ for a mere ÂŁ2.5 million just over 10 years ago. You say, hey, thatâs a lot of money! And youâre right, but itâs nothing compared to the most recent appraisal value of ÂŁ18,000,000. Now thatâs what I call a great investment!

The gossip surrounding the sale began after a spokesperson for the Beckhams reportedly confirmed that the couple had their 24-acre UK estate appraised.
So what makes this residence worth so much? It features indoor and outdoor pools, a recording studio, tennis courts, a zoo (Yes! It has a freakinâ zoo), and a beautiful garden. Plus you could think of it as an investment in history considering all of the celebs that have walked those halls.
A inside source revealed that they couldnât see David and Victoria ever coming back to âmake London their full-tie base.â Itâs crazy to think that this could be true remembering how resistant the former Manchester United soccer player was to originally move to America. Although, reports suggest that after the sale of âBeckingham Palaceâ is complete, the couple will buy another property in England. This one will most likely be much smaller than their current home.
Here you can take a peek inside the mansion.
As a designer Victoria often does business in London, but it is rare that she visits for more than a week or so before flying back to the US.
Question of the day: after seeing all of the beautiful âBeckingham Palaceâ photos, if you had ÂŁ18 mill would you buy it? Share your answer with us in the comments.
