Was it the in-house juice bar that sealed the deal? It’s not yet clear, but we do know that Brooklyn Beckham and his fiancée Nicola Peltz have celebrated the one-year anniversary of their engagement with a new mansion in the mountains above Beverly Hills. The pair splashed out $10.5 million on the impressive “starter” home, paying a whopping $1 million over the $9.5 million asking price for an amenity-packed pad filled with everything from a “white crystal quartz” massage room to the aforementioned juice bar, plus a rooftop meditation garden and labyrinth. The pricey deal was first reported by E!.
Best known as the eldest child of retired English footballer David Beckham and Spice Girls singer-turned-fashion queen Victoria Beckham, 22-year-old Brooklyn has forged a career as a model/photographer, appearing in Vogue China and shooting a campaign for Burberry BRIT, among others. As for Peltz, the billionaire heiress-turned-actress (“Inhumans,” “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” “The Last Airbender”) is the daughter of New York-based tycoon Nelson Peltz and his third wife, former model Claudia Heffner Peltz.
Jointly built and designed by Jason and Sonya Powell of the James Group, the so-called OM House is nestled on a quiet side street in the Coldwater Canyon neighborhood of Beverly Hills. Their overall goal: “to promote the ultimate wellness lifestyle experience with the highest level of design.”
Toward that end, the striking structure features 7,700 square feet of chic living space rife with exotic wood and stone throughout. Walls of glass open to create seamless indoor-outdoor environs, and there’s more good energy, apparently — the place includes a feng shui-inspired reflecting pool by the glass front door, designed to “attract and enhance positive energy, wealth and abundance.” Once inside, a slab of smoky quartz crystal is meant to additionally purify and neutralize unwanted energy. (Of course, it would seem abundantly clear that Beckham and Peltz need no help on the wealth and abundance front.)
Though he’s English, Beckham is certainly not new to Los Angeles. Beginning in 2007, his parents owned a lavish part-time home in Beverly Hills that they kept until 2018, when records reveal they sold it for $33.1 million to L.A. Rams owner Stan Kroenke and his wife Ann Walton Kroenke, a Walmart heiress.
