Victoria and David Beckham house: The footballer and his wife Victoria lived in a modest house in Salford in the 1990s – see the eye-opening bedroom
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 came 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.”
