The Beckhams have been granted permission to repair their ‘ruined’ mega mansion in London, according to reports.
The couple bought the £31.5million mansion from Kensington and Chelsea in 2013, but in recent photos parts of the property are cordoned off as “urgent repair work” is underway.
The pad’s stairs and deck are said to be “structurally unsound” and “too dangerous to use”.
Victoria, 47, and David, 46, have several homes available to them, so the renovation shouldn’t be too much of a problem.
However, the famous family will want the huge house repaired because part of the property is said to be ‘too dangerous to use’.
According to Victoria and David’s Design and Access Statement, the Beckhams no longer use the mansion’s terrace, which has structural damage from age, water seepage and frost chipping. reports MailOnline.
The statement reads: ‘A structural engineer has inspected the terrace and recommended repairs and renewal work on a similar basis.’
In other photos attached to the application, the roof terrace, which appears to be collapsing, is supported by metal poles – to prevent it from collapsing.
The project would be overseen by Soho House architect Michael Ergatoudis, who was also in charge of previous renovations to the property as well as Beckham’s Cotswolds stack.
After buying the London property in September 2013, the couple spent millions on renovations, employing renowned designer Rose Uniacke to remodel the interior, which includes six bedrooms, a gym, a shower room, a home cinema , an indoor swimming pool and even an air-conditioned garden. .
However, Posh and Becks ran into a problem after their next-door neighbor wrote a strongly worded letter opposing the air-conditioning plans.
They would have wanted to install air conditioning in five rooms, which included the luxury gym and the gigantic wine cellar on the ground floor.
The resident said he “totally disagrees” with the plans, which “will affect the historic character of the Victorian Streets House, my house included”.
He wrote: “Council should identify (sic) our deep concerns about any negative impacts on living conditions from noise, vibration, dirt, pollution and dust from construction and associated traffic, in addition to concerns about impacts on drainage, appearance and landscape, structural stability and historic buildings.”
The Beckhams are no doubt hoping for a smoother ride this time around as they focus all their efforts on their son Brooklyn’s wedding to actress Nicola Peltz, which is set to take place in April.
Victoria also has to keep an eye on her son Cruz, who is believed to have separated from his girlfriend Bliss Chapman, who is the daughter of Posh’s girlfriend, Rosemary Ferguson.
The Mirror has contacted representatives for Victoria and David for further comment.
