Gordon Ramsay to get new neighbours in Cornwall as offer goes in on £1.85m beach house next to his £4m mansion
GORDON Ramsay is finally set to get a new neighbour after a £1.85 million offer was made for the beach house next to his £4million mansion in Cornwall.
The chef has already provoked fury with residents in the picturesque seaside village of Rock in Cornwall when he bulldozed and rebuilt the original beachfront home.
The home, which has been on the market since April last year, has four bedrooms and private access to the Cornish coastline.
But the Hell’s Kitchen star will soon have new neighbours – as an offer has gone in on the £1.85 million beach house nearby.
The gorgeous property has beautiful views of the sea and boasts a private path leading straight to the beach.
The garden and patio overlooks the sweary chef’s cubic super-modern pad.
The contemporary beach house can be rented out as a holiday villa, or used as a second home.
The high-spec bolthole has four bedrooms – three with en-suite bathrooms – and beautiful views of the north Cornish coast.
The home is in the area known as “Kensington-On-Sea,” where wealthy Londoners head to on holiday.
The area is a favourite of Prince William and Harry, and Ramsay is one of a number of celebrities with houses in the area.
Gordon Ramsay, his wife Tana and their five children holed up in his multiple Cornish pads during the lockdown.
However, the 53-year-old has been a controversial figure in the popular holiday region.
The Michelin star chef was blasted by neighbours for moving down to Cornwall to his £4 million home for the pandemic – as they were concerned he could have brought the virus.
He was spotted travelling 246 miles back and forth from London to Cornwall.
Ramsay was also roasted by the coastguard for flouting lockdown rules.
The TV star had already enraged neighbours in Cornwall by flattening the 1920s house he bought in 2015 for £4.4 million.
The chef won an eight-month planning wrangle in 2016 to knock down the old house and replace it with his mega holiday home, despite furious objections from nearby residents.
Ramsay replaced the old house with an ultra-modern “Grand Designs” mansion, complete with two kitchens, a swimming pool, a wine cellar and four en suite bathrooms.
There were 17 separate objections, with the fiercest critic another of Ramsay’s next-door neighbours.
Tycoon Andrew Nisbet and his wife Anne took exception to the planned annexe, claiming it would compromise their privacy.
It is unknown if Ramsay’s long-running planning row affected the sale of the neighbouring house.
The estate agent selling the contemporary property has boasted its "privileged position" with peaceful, beach views right in the centre of the village.
It also wrote that the property is a perfect holiday home – full of spacious, airy living fit for any family.
With views of the estuary, the two-floor accommodation would be a catch for any beach lovers who can afford the price tag.
Ramsay also owns another £4 million beach house nearby, which he bought to stay in while rebuilding the other home.
The telly chef also rents out a luxury holiday home in Fowey for up to £7,000-a-week.
