Victoria Beckham and her husband David now have an impressive property portfolio including their London home, Cotswolds country retreat and Miami penthouse, but they previously lived in a two-bedroom flat in Cheshire.

The couple bought the home in Alderley Edge for £317,000 in 1998, where they lived with their eldest son Brooklyn. Photos show that Oakwood House was an impressive property to look at, with a red brick exterior and large bay windows, set within green communal gardens.

Inside, Victoria supposedly decorated the family home herself using items from both Europe and America. While VB is said to have chosen a Harrods kitchen and a bold zebra print living room, a former listing of the property on Rightmove in 2015 shows very chic interiors – of course, it's possible these have changed since the Beckhams owned the flat.

The drawing room was used as an open-plan living and dining room decorated with cream walls, cream carpets and matching curtains that hang either side of the large windows. A glass dining table and a crystal chandelier add glamorous touches.

The master bedroom had an en suite and dressing room, while there was also a separate bedroom and large bathroom, perhaps used for Victoria and David's guests.

The Beckhams welcomed baby Brooklyn in March 1999 before getting married in July of the same year. In 2002, they sold the top-floor flat and bought their first home together in the same area.

The couple bought this converted barn in 2001

Offering a lot more space for their growing family, their next house was a five-bedroom converted barn known as Hollinshead House in Alderley Edge. 

The fashion designer and footballer purchased the Grade-II listed house in 2001 for £1.25million, but reportedly invested £200,000 on renovations to create their dream home. They lived there with Brooklyn and Romeo until 2005.

When it went up for sale in 2012, the listing shared a look at the rustic interiors. Features included a 35ft long indoor swimming pool with exposed brick walls and high vaulted ceilings, and a living room with large French patio doors leading out onto the gardens, spanning half an acre of land.
