Their renowned Beckingham Palace reportedly featured leopard print walls and mirrored ceilings, but the Beckhams’ £12 million Cotswold mansion is far more understated and sophisticated.
Viewers caught a glimpse of their Soho Farmhouse-inspired residence in their new Netflix docuseries “Beckham,” where the couple showcased their expensive tastes and appreciation for classic designers, hardwood flooring, and exposed brick walls.
The couple, parents to Brooklyn, 24, Romeo, 21, Cruz, 18, and Harper, 12, acquired their country retreat for a reported £6.15 million in December 2016. Several scenes from the documentary show Posh and Becks conversing with the camera or unwinding in their rustic living room.
In one scene, Victoria is seen reclining on a lavish Chesterfield green velvet sofa, valued at approximately £10,000.
It comes with a footstool costing around £2,900 and a grey armchair priced at about £4,900.
In another scene, David sits on a grey sofa in front of the fireplace, which is also estimated to cost around £10,000.
The room is complemented by a substantial drinks cabinet and upscale lamps, with family photographs adorning the walls.

“Versailles-style parquet flooring provides a softer feel underfoot than stone or polished concrete, while also offering some acoustic baffling in what could be a rather echoey space,” commented Benji to FEMAIL.
“I adore the upholstery colors in the living room; they’ve maintained a very earthy ambiance here, using dark green, shades of greige, chocolate, and grey.
“We know they prioritize family, and the gallery wall of black and white photos likely includes images of joyful moments. By using only black frames, everything looks orderly despite the random arrangement,” he added.
Viewers were later treated to the renovated rustic Cotswolds kitchen, featuring chic dark grey cabinets with gold handles and a concealed fridge.

Completing the country-inspired look is a black double-fronted AGA, costing around £10,000, along with a traditional pizza oven, estimated at approximately £1,000.
A large stack of firewood stands ready for the family to prepare Italian dishes.
They cook with elegant copper pans hanging from a sizable rack and clean up with designer Daylesford White Stripe Tea Towels (priced at £7.50 per towel) from the namesake and nearby village. Large wooden boards hang on the exposed brickwork alongside oak shelves stocked with glassware.
The outdoor kitchen offers ample space, featuring a breakfast bar and a spacious leather sofa, ideal for family gatherings around the fireplace.
As if two kitchens weren’t enough, the Beckhams also possess a £50,000 BBQ tent from their friend Guy Ritchie’s brand, Wild Kitchen.
Back in March, David first shared a glimpse inside his latest culinary extravaganza.
The athlete provided a look at the expansive double tent, boasting a 12-seat table, BBQ, and an extensive grill. The ‘double tent’ can reportedly accommodate up to 20 guests, though David’s evening appeared to be a more intimate affair as he showcased his culinary creations.
Sharing a photo of fish grilling alongside a hearty serving of vegetables, David described the cooking experience as ‘unbelievable.’
He also shared pictures of the exterior of the cooker, asserting it was ‘by far the best fish I’ve ever eaten.’
Clearly impressed by the setup, the father of four declared it a ‘thing of beauty’ and stated that ‘it doesn’t get any prettier.’
Guy Ritchie initially unveiled his £50,000 luxury BBQ during the first day of the Chelsea Flower Show in September 2021.
