David and Victoria Beckham have sold their Los Angeles mansion for R488 million, netting a R162 million profit on the plush pad they purchased 11 years ago.

The showbiz power couple have offloaded the six-bedroom Beverly Hills abode for the huge sum, 11 years after forking out R325 million for the plush pad, which has netted the former footballer and his fashion designer wife an R162 million profit. 

According to The Los Angeles Times, the house has nine bathrooms and iron gates at the front of the property to ensure the pair had plenty of privacy during their time there. 

There is also a music room, which would've been ideal if Victoria - known as Posh Spice during her time with Spice Girls - had been keen to roll back the years by belting out some of the 'Wannabe' hitmakers' top tunes. 

The home also features a media room and a library, which could have come in handy for the couple's four kids, Brooklyn, 19, Romeo, 16, Cruz, 13, and seven-year-old Harper. 

It is not yet known who has bought the abode.

The couple purchased the mammoth mansion around the time retired footballer David signed for US team LA Galaxy, where he penned a contract worth an estimated R3.6 billion. 

But the family are spending a lot more time at their London home nowadays, and when he is in the US, he frequently visits Miami, where he has set up a new football team, Inter Miami, which has been years in the making. 

Last month, it was claimed the Beckhams were searching for a new mansion to buy in the Fisher Island or Miami Beach areas of the Florida city. 

A source said at the time: "They spent a lot of time down there in the spring and summer."

In 2016, David and Victoria were said to be selling their LA home for $30 million. 

Stephen Shapiro, one of America's top estate agents, said at the time: "It has been quietly on the market for a couple of years. It is a beautiful house. I remember there was an asking price of $30 million(R443 million)."
