Victoria and David Beckham bring LA traditions to their new home in London
Having bid farewell to their beloved Beckingham Palace last month, which they sold for a modest (in celebrity terms) £9.5 million, Posh and Becks have found their dream home in West London. And it's just down the road from Kate Middleton and Prince William.
Bringing a slice of their LA life back to the UK, the family's swanky, five-story home is said to come complete with fully-fledged panic room.
‘Security is a concern and the new house had a soundproof panic room,’ a source told The Mirror. ‘It may sound OTT but they are actually the norm in Los Angeles.’
Despite currently living in a rented mews house, the family are taking their time to perfect the dream mansion. Other impressive features include an underground spa, a pool, an indoor cinema, library, underground car park, and, erm, ‘staffed massage rooms’, although they aren't expected to move until late 2014.
‘After months of searching they have found their dream city home. Their offer should get accepted any day now, ' the source said. 'It is in a perfect, quiet location with discreet, well-to-do neighbours.
'David and Victoria want everything perfect. It will be unique.'
Said to be just a stone's throw away from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at Kensington Palace, there's every chance (we like to think) that Prince William will Becks will invite Wills for a kick-around on his new AstroTurf pitch.
David and Wills became friends in 2007, as they joined forces to help Britain's Olympic bid and bagged an invite to the royal wedding 2011.
