Giving over their glam villa to Victoria’s parents did not mean that the Beckhams abandoned Dubai. Instead, they bought a condo in the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa. Reports place the value of the apartment at around $5 million.
These days, the Beckhams’ home-base is their townhouse in Holland Park, Central London. The couple bought the Grade II–listed Victorian home in 2013 for an estimated $37.9 million and spent almost $10 million in renovations in 2016, including building separate quarters on an adjacent empty plot of land for son Brooklyn. The four-story mansion features six bedrooms, a state-of-the-art kitchen with black cabinetry and open shelving, an indoor pool, wine cellar, gym, a fashion runway, nail salon, and even a rumored escape tunnel under the garden.
Like most well-heeled English folk, Victoria and David Beckham purchased a proper country home in 2016. The Beckhams bought three Grade II farmhouses in the Cotswolds, the quintessential English countryside known to attract British royalty and celebrities. They spent $7.6 million and converted the homes into one nine-bedroom forever country home. Extensive work has been done on the grounds of the two-acre site with the Beckhams creating a ‘natural’ lake-type swimming hole filled with recycled water, and planting gardens, meadows, fields, and an orchard with 23 types of trees designed by British celeb landscaper Marcus Barnett. They have also added a wine cellar, an outdoor swimming pool, a traditional Estonian sauna and hot tub, a plunge pool, and a safari-style tent said to cost over $61,0000. A tennis court had been added early on, but has now been converted to a soccer pitch, complete with bleachers. One outlet even reports that the couple have put in applications for another escape tunnel. With all the upgrades and renovations, the country estate is now said to be valued at $14.7 million dollars.
As co-owner and president of Miami’s relatively new Club Internacional de Fútbol Miami, or Inter Miami CF as it is more commonly known, it only makes sense for David to own a place in the coastal metropolis. The family picked up a 10,335-square-foot full-floor penthouse in Downtown Miami’s One Thousand Museum, a curvy, other-worldly-looking 60-floor skyscraper designed by the late, great female architect Zaha Hadid. The five-bedroom, six-and-a-half-bathroom luxury condo features floor-to-ceiling walls which give way to spectacular views of the water and South Beach. The unit comes with several terraces, high ceilings, high-end Italian finishes, and even integrated sound and security systems. Apart from the standard gym and pool that seems requisite for most luxury buildings, this one also comes with a helipad, roofed driveways, lightning-speed elevators to each apartment, a wellness center, and according to one report, “custom scenting” in common areas like the lobby and communal dining spaces. Reports put the purchase price of this particular unit at $24 million.
