Since their return to London this year David and Victoria Beckham have been renting a property in West London but they could soon be moving into the £50million mansion that belonged to the late flamboyant director Michael Winner.
The Grade II listed property is close to Victoria’s fashion headquarters in Battersea as well as close to the Queen Park Rangers football ground where eldest son Brooklyn, trains with the youth squad.
Since David announced his retirement from international football there is no possibility of him moving to another country to play for a new team so the couple are said to be keen to put down firm roots in London and make a family home.
The huge mansion, named Woodland House, is a Queen Anne-style property that was built in 1875. Michael Winner bought the property in 1978 when it was a collection of flats, restoring it back to an impressive family home - so it would have plenty of room for David and Victoria’s four children.
With 47 rooms Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and little Harper Beckham will have plenty of space to run around as well as enjoying the in-house pool and cinema room that the property boosts, while David and Victoria could enjoy the Jacuzzi room and huge master bedroom suite.
Michael Winner did approach the local authority in regards to purchasing and maintaining the house as a museum but Kensington and Chelsea council decided the property was too large and in-turn could not afford the cost of running it – step in Mr and Mrs Beckham who are willing to pay the £50million price tag and keep it as a family home.
