Gordon Ramsay sells Cornish home ‘for a record’ £7.5million | Gordon Ramsay

Gordon Ramsay has sold one of his homes in Cornwall for £7.5million in what would be the county’s most expensive sale on record.

Daymer Bay House in Trebetherick – a property with six bedrooms, four bathrooms, swimming pool and tennis court on one hectare (2.5 acres) of land – was sold in March last year, when the “ pandemic-fueled “space race” has been continuing to drive up home prices in scenic and more rural locations.

The celebrity chef, who has an estimated net worth of $220m (£178m), made a handsome profit from the sale, having paid £4.4m in 2016. He now has a property in Cornwall.

The sale was the most expensive in Cornwall last year, according to land registry documents. It is also believed to be the most expensive ever sold in Cornwall, supplanting Polwartha in Rock which cost £6.5million in 2007, according to Cornwall Live.

Ramsay appeared outside the property in a segment of ITV’s breakfast show This Morning, with his daughter Matilda, when the family spent time there during the first lockdown in 2020.

After owning three houses in Cornwall, including a Grade II listed former Lloyds Bank in Fowey, he now only has his waterfront home in Rock.

Rock’s home was built on the site of a now demolished five-bedroom house, which he acquired for £4.4million in 2015.

In March, Ramsay came under fire for saying he dislikes local residents, some of whom have complained about his renovation projects in the past, but “absolutely loves” the county.

“Trust me I love Cornwall, it’s just Cornish I can’t stand,” he told Vernon Kay, the stand-in host of BBC Radio 2’s breakfast show. Zoe Ball. Asked about the remark, he added: “I promise I meant it. »

A spokesperson for Ramsay later said the Hell’s Kitchen star had “made these tongue-in-cheek comments many, many times.”
