Forget the air-con David and Victoria Beckham want to install in their £31.5m detached house, it's the cinema, gym and wine cellar we're interested in...
David and Victoria Beckham have gone and ruffled a few feathers in their Holland Park neighbourhood. The pair have asked for planning permission to have air-con installed in their £31.5m pad and fellow residents are not happy.
The Beckhams want air-con pumping into five rooms, including their gym and wine cellar, but one nighbour has raised concerns that this will ruin the historical feel of the road.
Anyway, whatever, all this has done has given newspapers the chance to print and share the incredible details of the Beckhams’ mansion. And we’re lapping it up.
Here’s a little lowdown on just how luxurious the new home of this super-couple is…
Posh and Becks hired London-based designer Rose Uniacke to oversee the £5m renovation of their home and, when it’s all ready, the house will have six bedrooms, a gym, wine cellar, study, office, playroom, cinema and drawing room.
The first floor will belong to David and Victoria, and has a huge bedroom, dressing room and en-suite bathroom. The house will also, reportedly, have separate beauty rooms for hairdressing, manicures, make-up and general pampering as well as entire rooms dedicated to VB’s shoes. Heaven!
This leaves the second floor of this four-story house for kids Brooklyn,16; Romeo,12; Cruz, ten and Harper, three to have the run of.
Staff and security will have access to a tunnel which will take them unseen to a second property, a mews house behind the main house. And there’ll be an underground garage.
All this will take the value of the pad up to £42m. Oh, and the Beckhams also own homes in California, Dubai and the South of France.
So, that’s what a combined wealth of £210m can get you. Not too shabby.
