UPDATE - Beckhams get off to shaky start with neighbours after planning dispute over tree house

POSH and Becks are a step closer to bringing their lavish lifestyle to Oxfordshire as work on their enormous £6m farmhouse looks all but complete.

David and Victoria Beckham bought the grand barn conversion in Great Tew, near Chipping Norton, for £6,150,000 in December 2016.

In February last year the home, which comprises three Grade II listed barns linked in an E-shaped pattern, still resembled a building site.

But now, more than a year since it was purchased, the property looks like the sprawling mansion the Beckhams had envisioned in their plans.

The home is situated along an unnamed road near Soho Farmhouse, an exclusive celebrity club which boasts visitors like Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as well as the Beckhams themselves.

It will include a two-tier garden containing an orchard with 23 different types of tree.

Other plans recently approved by West Oxfordshire District Council include a ‘natural swimming pool’, garden pergola and thatched outbuilding roofs.

It is understood football legend David, 42, will live in the home with his wife, former Spice Girl Victoria, 43, and their children Brooklyn, 18, Romeo, 15, Cruz, 12, and six-year-old Harper.

Rumours the star might have been doing a spot of DIY at the new house surfaced late last year after he was spotted in a B&Q in Banbury.
