Victoria and David Beckham’s surprisingly small bedroom will leave you in awe

Victoria and David Beckham have an impressive property portfolio with breathtaking homes in London, the Cotswolds and Miami. However, in the 90s, the couple lived in a modest house in Salford – and their old bedroom might surprise you.

A unearthed video, taken in 1997 two years before the couple got married, reveals one of their bedrooms with a small double bed. He had been dressed in white valance sheets and there was a soft stuffed bunny on the pillow, despite the fact that their eldest son Brooklyn was only born in 1999.

The space was finished with classic white walls, a wooden side table, and cream draped curtains. Unlike their super-chic homes today, the Beckhams’ former home was filled with small ornaments and pictures lining their windowsill, which added a warm, lived-in feel.

The room also featured a dressing room in the corner with rails holding rows of silk shirts and 15 pairs of trainers neatly positioned under a radiator. Sky Sports presenter Rob McCaffery, who was given the house tour, joked: “All the women in the country want to walk around here now.”

By comparison, their family mansion in Holland Park, London, has a huge walk-in dressing room which is decorated with a green velvet sofa, a large black rug and a decadent chandelier. The walls are lined with wardrobe doors while a large window at the end of the space provides a bright room perfect for staging the fashion designer’s outfits.

The property is said to be worth £150,000, and the rest of the interior boasted a living room with two white leather sofas, blue curtains and a life-size cardboard cutout of the footballer “that his girlfriend [Victoria’s] mama had wanted,” and a kitchen with white tile floors, pale blue cabinetry, and plaid blinds.

David and Victoria then bought a two-bed flat in Alderley Edge for £317,000 in 1998, and Rowneybury House – dubbed ‘Beckingham Palace’ after the Queenthe royal residence, Buckingham Palace – for £2.5million in 1999. The latter was complete with a maze, swimming pool and 24 acres of land.

But their Salford home clearly held a special place in their hearts. In an interview with MEN in 2008, Spice Girls star Victoria said: “Last time we were in Manchester for the Spice Girls concert, David and I went back to this house in Hazelhurst Road to have a look. There are such great memories for us – of the Trafford Center and all that sort of thing.

“I know David misses Manchester as well and he still stays in touch with everyone.”
