​Disgraced ex-Masterchef judge George Calombaris puts home on the market

Disgraced celebrity chef George Calombaris has put his beach house in the Mornington Peninsula on the market for a whopping $900,000 to $950,00.

The four-bedroom residence that also features a well-equipped kitchen and outdoor entertaining area is ideal for any wannabe chefs who think they’ve got the same skills as Calombaris.

The home is just one of many that the former TV chef and his wife Natalie Tricarico have bought in recent years.

The couple also purchased two other homes in Arthurs Seat and Toorak, Melbourne. In 2013. The homes went for $580,000 and 2.2 million respectively, according to Domain.

Calombaris made headlines this year after the hospitality group that he founded MAdE Establishment was ordered to backpay staff 7.83 million in unpaid wages and superannuation to a shocking 515 current and former employees.

The staff were not paid at the correct classification, worked hours that were not adequately compensated by annualised salaries and were affected by the incorrect application of an award.

The home is being marketed as an executive holiday residence or a family home.

Set over two levels, the home offers open plan formal and informal living.

There are four bedrooms and two bathrooms, as well as a walk-through dressing room and en suite in the master bedroom.

The kitchen comes with a butler’s pantry, a large island store bench and a 900mm oven. The outside dining room is home to a pizza oven and a barbeque.
