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

Gordon Ramsay has sold one of his homes in Cornwall for £7.5m in what is believed to be the most expensive sale ever recorded in the county.

Daymer Bay House in Trebetherick – a property with six bedrooms, four bathrooms, a swimming pool and tennis court set on a hectare (2.5 acres) of land – was sold in March last year, when the pandemic-fuelled “race for space” was still driving up house prices in picturesque and more rural locations.

The celebrity chef, who has a net worth estimated at $220m (£178m), has made a tidy profit from the sale, having paid £4.4m for it in 2016. He now has one property left 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 went for £6.5m in 2007, according to Cornwall Live.

Ramsay has appeared outside the property on 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 once owning three homes in Cornwall, including a Grade II-listed former Lloyds Bank in Fowey, he now just has his waterfront house in Rock.

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

In March, Ramsay was criticised for saying he did not like the local residents, some of whom have complained about his renovation plans in the past, but “absolutely loves” the county.

“Trust me, I absolutely love Cornwall, it’s just the Cornish I can’t stand,” he told Vernon Kay, the stand-in host on Zoë Ball’s BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show. When further asked about the remark he added: “I promise I did mean it.”

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