Since the pandemic started, Gordon Ramsay has been splitting his time between his three houses on two different continents. The celebrity chef-turned television personality reportedly lives in his mansion in Los Angeles, California, while shooting for shows in America and luxury pad in Wandsworth, south London, while he is in England. However, during the pandemic lockdown, Ramsay spent the entirety of it alongside his family in their Cornwall mansion also known as their holiday home. Ramsay’s current houses are in Wandsworth, South London, and Bel Air, California.
Gordon James Ramsay is a British chef, food critic, restaurateur, television personality, and writer. Over the years, Ramsay has become the most recognized and globally successful chef in the world if not one of the best. From his humble origins from Boiling Point, a British TV miniseries, which propelled him into becoming the most influential chef in the United Kingdom to reaching a global audience through the culinary cult classic show, Hell’s Kitchen.
His short temper, blunt demeanor, and love for screaming out profanities have made Ramsay a television icon in its own right. Though a long time has passed since those Hell’s Kitchen days, with appearances on Junior Masterchef and similar shows, we have seen another side to Ramsay’s personality.
Thanks to his wholesome presence on social media with pictures and videos of Oscar, Gordon’s youngest child, helping Gordon in the kitchen, Gordon has managed to become quite an influential social media celebrity. With the rollout of the duet and stitch features, Ramsay has been critiquing food submissions from across the world and this has allowed him to earn over 38.2 million followers on TikTok making him the most successful professional chef on the platform.
His Instagram account currently has over 13.8 million followers and alongside that, he has 19.2 million followers on his YouTube channel and over 7.6 million followers on Twitter. Gordon first rose to prominence on the UK version of Hell’s Kitchen and Kitchen Nightmares and subsequently became highly sought-after when producers wanted to adapt the same shows in America.
Since his debut on the Hell’s Kitchen, Gordon has become the first person from Scotland to hold a Michelin star, and has since received over 16 Michelin stars over the past decades and currently holds seven stars. Ramsay has been awarded the OBE, Officer of the Order of the British Empire, by Queen Elizabeth II in 2006 for his contribution to the hospitality industry.
Following his success as a chef and restaurateur, Ramsay has also become a successful investor and businessman. In 2020, Forbes reported that Ramsay has earned over $70,000,000 in the year which placed him no. 19 on its list of the highest-earning celebrities.
Celebrity Net Worth reported Ramsay purchased a 7,413 square foot mansion with five bedrooms, six bathrooms, a swimming pool, and of course, a state-of-the-art luxury kitchen for $6.75 million in Bel-Air in 2012.
The mansion sits on a 1-acre plot of land that offers breathtaking views of the canyon, city, and ocean and is within the limits of the prestigious guard-gated enclave of Bel-Air Crest. This 8,880 square-foot traditional estate offers rare luxury, privacy, and comfort as it was intended by architect Ken Ungar and interior designer, Carol Poet.
The house was built in 2003 and features idyllic grounds with rolling lawns, patios, a 2-story guest house, a spa, and an infinity pool. The house is estimated to have a value of $11 million as of today and features five bedrooms and seven bathrooms.

The other main mansion that is used by the Ramsay family is their $8 million luxury pad situated in Wandsworth, South London. A townhouse, in essence, the Ramsay family has been living in this house ever since they shifted to London. Gordon’s application to renovate and convert the existing four bedrooms in the house into one huge master bedroom with two ensuite bathrooms and a walk-in dressing room was approved by the local council earlier last year.
The townhouse also features a massive kitchen that was featured in the CBBC show Matilda And The Ramsay Gang. Apart from this, the house also features a gym, study, and utility room, and all renovations are expected to finish by December 2022.

At a point in time, Ramsay owned three different properties in Cornwall with his mansion on Fowey being his grandest house at one point in time. Ramsay dropped over $4 million for the refurbished bank in Fowet but eventually sold the property in 2020. Apart from that, Ramsay also owned the Daymer Bay House, Trertherick, which is less than a couple of miles from his current Cornwall residence. Ramsay eventually sold this property as well in 2021 for over $9 million.
The Hell’s Kitchen superstar currently owns a huge mansion with amazing sea views in Rock which Ramsay bought for over $5.3 million in 2015. The house that stands on the property today was built from scratch after Ramsay had the original 1920s house demolished. DailyMail reports Ramsay spent over $2 million on renovations alone after buying the property for over $5.3 million which made it the second most expensive property sale in Cornwall at the time.
Today two houses stand on the property, the main house and a smaller second house called the Garden House.
The main house has two kitchens which considering who Gordon is and what he used to do for a living, is not that strange. Apart from that, the house also has four en-suite bathrooms and two terraces overlooking the Camel Estuary.
The smaller house features three bedrooms, a separate kitchen, a boat store, a cart port and a dining and living area. The most impressive part of the house remains to be the infinity pool that cost Ramsay over $100,000 and a wine cellar that set the Ramsays back by over $38,000.
All of Gordon Ramsay’s business interests are held by the company Gordon Ramsay Holdings Limited.
Gordon is also a great philanthropist as The Gordon and Tana Ramsay Foundation helps in providing some of the sickest children the best chance in life by supporting the Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity.
As of 2022, Ramsay is the third-richest chef on the planet and earns his astounding net worth of $220 million from his 35 restaurants, his thriving TV, TV production, and directing careers.
A. No, Gordon Ramsay is not the richest chef in the world anymore. He was recently overtaken by Alan Wong, who became the richest celebrity chef in the world. He is currently the third richest chef behind Alan and Jamie Oliver.
A. Currently, Gordon splits his time between Los Angeles and England. In the former, he has a $6.75 million mansion, which he bought in 2012, while in England, Ramsay usually spends time in his Wandsworth Townhouse in South London and his vacation in Cornwall.
A. Gordon’s Cornwall Vacation house is the biggest in his impressive portfolio in terms of actual living space even though his Bel-Air house sits on a plot of over one acre.
A. Given inflation and the recency of the purchase, Gordon’s Cornwall $7 million house seems to be the most expensive after factoring in renovation costs. However, his London Townhouse was initially purchased for $8 million and underwent recent renovations which could make it his most expensive house.
