Jamie Oliver’s original pukka pad is for sale

A three bedroom London where Jamie Oliver filmed the original series of The Naked Chef has gone on the market for almost £3m.

More than a decade ago, Jamie made his television debut at the Clerkenwell flat in The Naked Chef. The programme featured the spiral staircase in the opening credits, the cobbled street where Jamie parked his moped and the kitchen where he cooked his ‘pukka tukka’.

Jamie and his wife Jools lived in the property – paid for by the BBC – while filming the first two series of The Naked Chef.

The programme was ground-breaking in its day with the use of jumpy, close up camera work and Jame’s relaxed cooking style, which would see him tear up herbs rather than chop them.

Each episode would be based around a social event in Jamie’s life, such as cooking for his sister’s hen night.

Since moving out, the property has been updated, with a new kitchen, a spa bathroom and ensuite bedrooms. It is currently on the market for £2,995,000.

John Athanasiou, of estate agents Stirling Ackroyd, said: “When you go up the spiral staircase in this particular property, people can’t help but be impressed with the bright and beautifully space.”

Chef Marcus Wareing puts pad on market for £2.1m

Italian units in the kitchen

Gordon Ramsey’s former protegé chef, Marcus Wareing, has listed his family home for sale through Savills for £2.1m.

Wareing and Ramsay both live in Wandsworth, London (where average property values are £501,892) and publicly fell out. Could this be why Marcus Wareing is selling up? He was recently quoted as saying:

‘If I never speak to that guy again for the rest of my life, it wouldn’t bother me one bit…’

The fully refurbished property is set over five floors and has f ive bedrooms, three reception rooms, three bathrooms and a walled garden and is situated on St Anne’s Crescent – a stones throw away from Wandsworth Common.

We imagine the real money was spent on the kitchen (Gordon Ramsay reportedly spent £40,000 just on his kitchen!!). Wareing’s kitchen has a “contemporary feel to it and a wide range of Italian units with integrated Smeg appliances and light and bright dining area which sit under a partially glazed roof, benefiting from built-in seating and French doors which open on to the garden.”

The full set of property details can be found here.
