Former Real Madrid star David Beckham and wife Victoria are set to sell their £24million LA mansion – because it is too small.
Posh and Becks bought the luxury 13,000-square-foot home in June 2007 for £14.2million after David landed a £128million deal at LA Galaxy but have now put the huge Italian-style villa on the market for almost double its original price tag.
The 1.25-acre property – nestled between Beverly Hills and Bel Air – boasts stunning views, nine bathrooms, palm trees and a swimming pool but it is understood they want to swap it for an even more lavish manor, with a bigger garden for sons Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz to play football.
A source revealed to the Sun on Sunday;
“Victoria and David have both had concerns over the house for some time – especially about its size.
“The garden is too small for football and the boys have to go round their friend’s houses – usually either Gordon Ramsey or Elton John – to have a kick-about.
“The private driveway is also relatively small. The house has been on the market for a long time and David and Victoria are actively looking for a bigger place.”
While Stephen Shapiro, one of America’s top real estate agents, also confirmed that he had shown potential buyers around the address. He said;
“It has been quietly on the market for a couple of years. It is a beautiful house. I remember there was an asking price of $30million (£24m).”
