The celebrity chef, who has an estimated net worth of $220m (£178m), made a handsome profit from the sale, having paid £4.4m for it in 2016. He now has one left. 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, replacing Polwartha in Rock which sold for £6.5m in 2007, according to Cornwall Live.
Ramsay appeared outside the property in a segment of ITV’s breakfast show This Morning, with her daughter Matilda, when the family spent time there during the first lockdown in 2020.

The house in Rock was built on the site of a now-demolished five-bedroom house, which he bought for £4.4m in 2015.
In March, Ramsay came under fire for saying he didn’t like local residents, some of whom had complained about his renovation plans in the past, but that he “absolutely loves” the county.
“Trust me, I love Cornwall, I just can’t stand Cornwall,” he told Vernon Kay, the substitute host of Zoë Ball’s BBC Radio 2 breakfast show. When asked further about the comment, he added, “I promise I meant it.”
A spokesperson for Ramsay later said that the Hell’s Kitchen star had “made these tongue-in-cheek comments many, many times”.
