"Beckingham Palace," with David and Victoria Beckham (inset)
Beckingham Palace on the block?
That's the word out of Britain, where multiple reports
and Victoria Beckham
are planning to sell their 24- acre English estate dubbed Beckingham Palace.
The asking price is around $28 million, according to the Daily Mail
When the couple and their children moved to Los Angeles
in 2007, they held on to the property, located north of London in Hertfordshire, as a base for when they went back home.
The Beckhams bought the seven-bedroom estate in 1999 for nearly $4 million and are said to have spent millions renovating the property to include, among other things, a 52-ft. garden pavilion with a marble floor, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, tennis courts, recording studio and gym.
But with the couple's three sons
settled into their Hollywood lives and a recent family addition, daughter Harper
, they seem to be strengthening their ties to the States.
Earlier this year David, signed a new two-year deal with the LA Galaxy soccer team, after turning down an offer to join France's Paris Saint-Germain club.
