David and Victoria Beckham splash out an eye-watering £40 million on posh London pad (complete with staff quarters, naturally!)

Golden Balls and Posh are on the move again. The glamorous couple have just snapped up a huge £40 million family home in the capital's most exclusive neighbourhood

After many months of house-hunting the Beckhams have finally bought their new UK home and (surprise, surprise!) it’s no run-of the-mill London terrace. No sir. Take a look at this gorgeous mansion…

The white stucco Georgian house, located in the Royal London Borough of Kensington & Chelsea, has seven bedrooms, an underground car park and even a tunnel linking the main part of the house to a second property behind (rumoured to be for the ‘staff’).

However, old Becks can’t just rest on his laurels now they’ve found their dream home. Rumour has it that Posh is planning a £5 million renovation with the help of bestie and design guru Kelly Hoppen (maybe she’s building herself an extra-large dressing room!).

They’re also planning to add specially designed waterproof plasma TVs in every bathroom.

Brooklyn, 14, Romeo, 11, Cruz, eight, and daughter Harper, two, will take over the second floor of the house, which has three bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms.

The lower ground includes a study, gym area, three service rooms and a small garden and there is an underground garage where David can keep his fleet of cars.

David and Victoria sold their former home in Hertfordshire last month.

The Sawbridgeworth property, dubbed Beckingham Palace, is thought to have fetched a whopping £12 million.

Along with the sale of the house, Golden Balls’ much-loved Ferrari, two Jaguar sports cars and a £2.6 million holiday home in France were thrown in for good measure. WOWSERS!
