David and Victoria Beckham are selling their lavish mansion in Los Angeles for £24 million, but have yet to find a suitable buyer. The power couple quietly put the Italian-style villa, which they bought in 2007 for £14.2 million, on the market “a couple of years ago” because they want a bigger garden for their children sons Brooklyn, 17, Romeo, 14, Cruz, 11, and five-year-old daughter Harper.
A source told The Sun newspaper: “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 Ramsay or Sir 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.”
The beautiful 1.25-acre property is situated in between Beverly Hills and Bel Air, California, boasts gorgeous views of city, comes with nine bathrooms and has a large swimming pool.
Although it’s been on the market for a while, it has raked in plenty of interest.
Stephen Shapiro, one of America’s top estate agents, 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 $30 million (£24 million).”
But it’s not just their house in Los Angeles they want to offload as soon as possible, as the famous family put their £2 million holiday home in the south of France on the market in August.
The couple spent £5 million on renovations for the apartment but decided to part ways with it after visiting it just a few times since they bought it.
They also have a £31 million townhouse in Holland Park, West London, they live in for the majority of the year.
