EXCLUSIVE PIC AND VIDEO PACKAGE: Gordon Ramsay's House Nightmares! TV chef leaves local residents with sour taste over building work on holiday home
THESE are the first pictures of Gordon Ramsay’s multi-million pound holiday home, which is being constructed from scratch after he controversially razed a 100-year-old property to the ground.
The fiery TV chef sparked anger in the posh coastal town of Rock, in North Cornwall, when he applied for planning permission to completely destroy a house, which he bought for £4.4 million in November 2015 and had stood there since 1926.
Cornwall Council gave him the green light to build a fancy four-storey property and a smaller home, called The Garden House, which especially annoyed local residents for being constructed too close to the shoreline.
The 51-year-old’s grand plans includes a main house with two kitchens, five en-suite bedrooms, wine cellar, gym and swimming pool. The garden annexe will have three bedrooms and space for a boat store.
Angry locals accused Ramsay's plans of being a 'blatant attempt to move the building line closer to the sea’, setting an 'undesirable precedent’ and ‘alien to the character’ of the area.
Rock is one of the richest towns in the south west of England, where property prices average £802,115, but Ramsay is running the risk of annoying his neighbours even further with the noise and dirt on the main road leading upto his property. Unlike the grand renovations of his friend David Beckham - who recently converted three disused barns into one main dwelling in the trendy area of Great Tew, The Cotswolds - there are no signs saying what time building work can start and finish.
