The Beckhams may be moving to the country.
Rumor has it that the pair have purchased The Abbotswood Estate, a 774-acre property in the English countryside.
On the estate is a historic 10-bedroom manor house built in 1865. There’s plenty of room for their four children and any new additions.
According to the Daily Mail, the house’s square footage makes it 24 times as large as the average new construction in modern Britain.
