Not too shabby

This is the most expensive country home in the UK - and the Beckhams might want it

It’s VERY swanky.

THE BECKHAMS MAY have watched too much Downton Abbey for their own good.

According to the Mirror, David and Victoria Beckham are set to plunk down £27 million (about €38 million) on a country estate in The Cotswolds, in south-central England.

The historic 10-bedroom estate in question, known as The Abbotswood Estate, is set on 774 acres of pristine English countryside.

It’s also reportedly the most expensive country home in the UK.

Knight Frank has the listing.

There is a historic 10-bedroom manor house, built in 1865, on the estate. The home is a Grade II-listed building, which protects it from destruction or alteration due to its cultural heritage.

There are also 13 separate cottages on the massive property.

Here are some photos if you want to take a look around:
