They’ve made Los Angeles their home for the last five years.
But now the Beckhams have decided to make it more permanent and are to put their famous English residence Beckingham Palace up for sale.
David and Victoria are having their Hertfordshire mansion, believed to be worth around £18million, valued by estate agents.
The couple, who are worth over £160million, love the home which holds many happy memories for them, but felt it was wasteful to hold on to it when they never visit.
Victoria said in her recent Vogue interview that she’s in London she prefers to stay at The Savoy hotel, as she would have to spend four hours in the car just to get to and from the office.
The couple bought Beckhingham Palace’s sprawling 22-acre estate in 1999, shortly after tying the knot.
And they have since spent £18 million renovating the mansion to include swimming pools and a gym, amongst other highlights.
The latest buzz is that Hollywood hotty Kim Kardashian is planning to buy the Beckingham Palace for her family. Recently reports have come that Beckhams are planning to sell their house for 18 million pound as the British player has settled full time in America with wife Victoria and four children. According to a Sun Online report, the Reality TV star wants to use the property as a European base for her family which includes sisters Khloe and Kourtney and mother Kris Jenner. “That when Kim’s family isn’t there, she hopes to rent the place out to fans of the Beckhams,” sources said.
If you want peek into the life of a celebrity, then look no further than Amersham Common House in Buckinghamshire.
This was formally the house of the pop star Leo Sayer who entertained so many of us in the 1970′s and then re-introduced himself controversially in Celebrity Big Brother in 2007.
Amersham Common House is now for sale for £2.65 million, giving us a chance to view Leo’s former home and lifestyle.
Since he sold it for £925,000 he has been living in Sydney, Australia, enjoying the warmer climate to that of his rainy hometown.
Some might say he is also trying to forget his expensive divorce and an irresponsible manager who went on far too many spending sprees, leaving Leo now only able to rent properties in Sydney.
The property has been substantially enlarged and extended since Leo lived in it, giving 7 bedrooms that are ideal for a large family.
It also boasts a swimming pool and leisure complex fit for a celebrity. The kitchen area has been impressively extended and there are some very cool environmental features, such as a ground source heat pump. However, the best feature for any pop star is the in house Cinema with Dolby surround sound that will definitely stir even the most placid soul and make them feel like dancing.
