The pair is allegedly bidding their current Hertfordshire residence (aka “Beckingham Palace”) adieu for the $27 million spread—the most expensive country home in the United Kingdom.
The 17th century mansion sits on 22 acres in Cotswolds—where Kate Moss also resides—with a main house that includes ten bedrooms, six bathrooms, and six separate reception rooms.
There’s also thirteen cottages surrounding the main house that are part of the property—with grounds so expansive that the Dikler River actually runs through it!
In addition to two distinct entrance lodges and eleven farmhouses, the home is enveloped by landscaped gardens designed by the celebrated British architect, Edwin Lutyens.
Also worth noting is the estate’s dozen-odd drawing and dining rooms, ideal for hosting guests and lounging indoors with friends and family.
Outside, nearly 960,000 sq. feet of land allows for plenty of outdoor activity—fishing, farming, and even horseback riding—perfect for entertaining the Beckham kids: Brooklyn, Romeo, Harper, and Cruz.
