Victoria and David Beckham French Estate is Listed at $2.7MM

Description:


David and Victoria Beckham have put their estate in Bargemon, France, up for sale for $2.7 million. “Beckingham Palace-sur-Mer” cost the British power couple around $2 million American when they purchased it in 2003, and despite extensive renovations to the tune of $6.6 million, they’ve decided to unload it after having only visited a handful of times.

Located near the Cote d’Azur in southern France, the 19th century home counts a state-of-the-art kitchen with stainless steel countertops and exposed wood beams and an oversized dining room with intricate sconce and chandelier lighting and a two-way fireplace among its amenities.

A lavish formal sitting room is done up in lavender and extends the open fireplace into a pair of arched, stone doorways, while an entryway with a coved ceiling and heavy wood adornments has a bedrock-gray paint job to go with a Doric ruin-themed wall sconce.

Also on the home’s first floor is a guest suite with three double bedrooms and a large bathroom featuring a soaking tub, a chandelier and moody purple and green walls. Two staircases lead to the second floor, where the master suite has a brighter theme: the chandelier pair matches the white walls and the ceiling includes a subtle mural of the sky and opens to the raised terrace, with access to the property’s opulent gardens.

Also outdoors is an enormous infinity swimming pool, a pool house, rolling meadows and dense woodland, plus a farm house converted into a guest home.

David’s been busy on this side of the pond this year, finally securing a spot in Miami to place his MLS expansion team’s stadium in March. Among his partners in the venture are Simon Fuller, the creator of the Idol franchise; Bolivian telecom impresario Marcelo Claure; and Tim Lieweke, the former president of the Anschutz Entertainment Group, which owns the L.A.’s Kings, Lakers and Galaxy.

David’s net worth is estimated at over $350 million. But make no mistake—this is a marriage of equals: Former Spice Girl Victoria has a net worth estimated at $300 million. Both are in their early forties.
---------------------

Victoria snapped up the property, located in the sunny French village of Bargemon, near the Cote d’Azur, for £1.5m in 2003.

If the property now sells at its listed price, it could mean an overall loss of £4m on the picturesque French property.

According to legend, the estate is rumoured to be haunted by the ghost of a previous owner, who took his own life in the study - but the reasons for the Beckhams selling now might simply be down to their preference to divide their time between their homes in London and Los Angeles.

A source told Sun on Sunday: 'They might have poured millions into the mansion, but they didn't seem too keen to enjoy the results of their cash.

'The locals won't miss them as they were hardly ever here.

'You wouldn't have seen Victoria queuing for a croissant in the boulangerie.'

According to the agent, Knight Frank, the 'exceptional estate' offers 'wide open country views' and is 'ideal for those seeking complete privacy'.

The property boasts six bedrooms, three reception rooms, four bathrooms, staff accommodation and a 'superb infinity pool with magnificent views of the woodland and meadow.'

The estate also has a chapel and various outbuildings which offer 'additional potential'.

Victoria, David and their four children, Brooklyn, 17, Romeo, 13, Cruz, 11 and Harper, five are currently in LA, where they own a home which they retreat to during the summer holidays.
