  • David and Victoria Beckham are selling their Hertfordshire home but will only allow a family to move in

    Victoria Beckham is a girl who knows what she wants and it’s certainly something she’s admired for, so it comes as no surprise then that she’s already lined out who she’ll allow to buy her Hertfordshire home and who is struck off the list.

    In light of the news that David and Victoria Beckham are to sell their mansion, nicknamed Beckingham Palace, it’s also emerged that they won’t allow their former home to be sold to property developers.

    Instead, they’d like a private buyer and according to the Daily Mail, they’ve informed their estate agent that they’d like a family to move in instead. The reasoning? Victoria and David don’t want anyone to cash in on their name. A source close to the couple told the newspaper:

    ‘They know there aren’t lots of individuals looking for houses of this size, and developers would jump at the chance to turn it into smaller flats, which would have added value because of the Beckham connection.

    ‘But both David and Victoria spent years improving Rowneybury and they’re prepared to wait for the right buyer who will continue their work.’

    The Beckhams did extensive work on the mansion including building both indoor and outdoor pools and a recording studio. But now the family is settled in London they’d prefer a more central base and are house hunting in Kensington and Mayfair, near to Victoria’s offices in Battersea.
