Victoria and David Beckham’s new house has a secret tunnel, a hair salon and make-up and manicure rooms.

The superstar couple returned to London in January after David’s contract with Los Angeles Galaxy ended. They have been searching for a new family home for some time and have now splashed out £40 million on a mansion in the city.

It has been reported Victoria and David plan to spend a further £5 million renovating the four-storey period property. The house will feature rooms for hairdressing, make-up and manicures, plus separate areas for Victoria’s impressive shoe collection.

The lower floor has a gym, massage room, underground garage and a study.

Bedrooms for their four children Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper will be located on the second floor, and they will each have their own en-suite bathrooms.

Every bathroom will have custom-made waterproof plasma TVs and there is a sound system installed throughout the house which can be controlled with a phone or computer.

It has been reported that the mansion also boasts a secret tunnel that gives access to a second unseen property. This will be used by the staff and security teams.

David and Victoria also own homes in Dubai, California and the South of France.

They recently sold their Hertfordshire mansion, dubbed Beckingham Palace, for £12 million. This was the property they lived in after they wed in 1999, before relocating to Spain in 2003.

“David in particular was desperately sad to sell the family home as there are so many memories there,” a source told British newspaper Sun on Sunday. “They have had years of happiness in the home, but practically now there is no need to keep it.”
