My Kitchen Rules host, celebrity chef and author Peter Evans and his wife, the former glamour-model turned nutritionist Nicola Robinson, have finally upgraded in Malabar.

The couple are selling their now unneeded previous home (above and below).

It was back in 2014 when they bought a 1960s knockdown home with the intention of creating their family residence. The couple paid $1.27 million and have since built on the 580 sqm parcel at a cost of around $1 million.

The two-level, Metricon-designed home, which they moved into late last year, features a roof terrace. They’ve also got a dedicated ping pong room — Evans says the whole family are dedicated ping pong players.

It sits in exotic gardens that feature aloe trees, Mexican lilies and a climbing fig tree.

They have also installed a magnesium swimming pool, beside the enclosed trampoline for Evans’ daughters, Indii and Chilli. And their dog, Shikoba, is a fan of the pool, judging by their Instagram posts.

Evans and the family spent time over the summer break at their farm in Pottsville, in northern NSW between Byron Bay and the Gold Coast. They recently added an outdoor ice bath to the farm.

Evans has been in the spotlight in recent weeks, as MKR celebrates its 10th season. He has also created headlines when he recently reiterated his 2016 suggestion there was no need to wear sunscreen.

The controversial health food couple have now listed their redundant five-bedroom home which is just a few streets back from the beach.

NG Farah Little Bay agents Peter Goulding and Nick Ujvary have the old family home going to auction on February 23. Buyers have been told similar homes are fetching prices between $2.5 million and $3 million.

The 2008 modern home on 330 sqm comes fitted with a designer commercial kitchen which opens on to a ground level wraparound ­courtyard.

Evans and Robinson have ­enhanced the size of the courtyard, which now features a swimming pool along with more entertaining space complete with barbecue and fireplace.

The upper level terrace, off the curved media room and master bedroom, has ocean views.

The couple, who wed in a secret ceremony in late 2016 on their farm, paid $1.44 million for the now redundant home in 2013.
