Gordon Ramsay is set to become an official Los Angeles resident after buying a posh $6.75 million mansion, reports AOL Real Estate
. The British chef, television personality and restaurateur scored a sweet mansion in the highly prestigious (and therefore, exclusive) guard-gated compound of Bel Air Crest. Ramsay's new digs measure 7,413 square feet and include peaceful views of the canyon, city and ocean, which will hopefully serve to calm the notoriously hotheaded chef.
Inside the pad there's five bedrooms, six bathrooms, and of course, a state-of-the-art luxury kitchen where Ramsay can hone his cooking skills and rev up for the coming seasons of MasterChef and his new show, Hotel Hell, which just began shooting at New York's Cambridge Hotel. Outside amenities include a large free-form swimming pool and spa, which is a must-have amenity for any luxurious Tinseltown mansion.
These days Ramsay is all about launching projects on this side of the pond, so buying a swanky Los Angeles pad certainly makes sense. Not only does Ramsay's show MasterChef shoot in L.A., but he's also launching a new restaurant, Gordon Ramsay Steak, in Las Vegas this spring, as well as developing a line of kitchenware and products for Kmart (talk about multi-tasking). With so many American-based projects in the works, do we smell dual citizenship in Ramsay's future?
