Soccer Superstar David Beckham Puts Beckingham Palace Up for Sale

Soccer superstar David Beckham and his wife, former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham, have put their sprawling English countryside manor house on the market, for a cool $29 million.

Seems the stylish couple, who have settled into their home in Los Angeles where David plays for the LA Galaxy, thought better of keeping the estate in their homeland when their lives now keep them Stateside the majority of the time.

The couple purchased the gorgeous estate, dubbed "Beckingham Palace" by the British press, in 1999, for a reported $4 million,  but have done extensive refurbishing of the home and property over the past decade. Beckham had the opportunity to return to Europe to play with a French team late last year, but declined, stating that his family is his top priority, and his children, sons, Romeo, Cruz, Brooklyn and infant daughter Harper, are well-adjusted in their lives in LA, and he did not wish to uproot his family.

The super-couple also maintain a home in the French countryside, as well as their sprawling LA home base.
