The Beckhams Set To Work On Basement Renovations

Plans have been revealed of the £31.5 million property in Holland Park in the capital, owned by the Beckhams, showing that the family intend to start their London basement conversion to enlarge their wine cellar and install a cinema screen.

Other work set to be done on the house includes renovating two bathrooms and removing one bathroom on the third floor in order to create a sitting room and extended bedroom, the Daily Mirror reports.

Once all the work has been completed, the house will boast a gym, six bedrooms, an office, study, cinema, playroom and a big drawing room. David and Victoria will occupy the master suite on the first floor.

Estate agent Becky Fatemi told the news source: “The Beckhams’ home has got very grand proportions, it is a trophy home. You don’t get that many coming up for sale as many of these homes have been turned into flats… The work will probably cost around £500 – £600 per sq/ft so it will cost around £5 million to do.”

This type of work is increasingly popular among wealthier boroughs of London as homeowners seek to expand their living spaces while operating in accordance with guidelines set out by their local authorities. Restrictions on building work means people have limited options to build upwards, so subterranean construction is their best option.
