The masked thief allegedly entered the property through an upstairs bedroom and managed to remain undetected by the family until the Beckhams’ 17-year-old son, Cruz, returned from a night out with friends.
Cruz reportedly noticed broken glass from the window of the guest bedroom and discovered it had been ransacked.
Alerting his father, the pair then called for police before searching for the intruder themselves.
Arriving at the property, police were unable to locate the burglar, who was believed to have fled with thousands of pounds worth of designer and electronic goods.
Officers are currently examining CCTV footage from that evening, which reportedly shows an individual clambering over the front gate of the property between 8:30pm and 11:30pm.
Though sources for The Sun suggest that the Beckhams have very good security “both physically and technically”, the family has since ordered a review after being left “shaken” by the break-in.
Police believe the incident may be gang-affiliated, with similar cases reported in neighbouring properties. Though no arrests have so far been made, the investigation is ongoing.
