Ex-wife of billionaire Bill Gross lists 'resort-like' Beverly Hills estate for $38 million

Sue Gross, the ex-wife of billionaire bond king Bill Gross (pictured together in 2012), is selling her Beverly Hills estate for $38million three years after purchasing it from Ellen DeGeneres 

The ex-wife of billionaire bond king Bill Gross is selling her 'resort-like' Beverly Hills estate just three years after purchasing it from Ellen DeGeneres and her wife, Portia di Rossi.

Sue Gross listed the 5,286-square-foot Midcentury Modern home, which sits behind large double gates on North Alpine Drive, for $38million. She purchased the home for $35million in 2018 and has since made several renovations. 

Gross describes the luxurious Los Angeles County home as a place to 'escape without having to leave the city,' the Wall Street Journal reports. 

She is selling the property because she has another house nearby that is almost done with construction.

The four bedroom home was customized to her personal tastes with the help of her interior designer Sheldon Harte and her property manager and general contractor Justin Krzyston. 

Krzyston and Harte helped Gross make several updates to the property. 

She reportedly added custom hand-raked limestone fireplace surround in the living room and had two additional bathrooms built. Gross also added a smart home systems to the property. 

Gross's ex-husband Bill made his fortune running PIMCO Investment management and has made headlines in the past for juvenile tactics involving his properties.

Listing Agent Josh Altman told the newspaper said the fact that the property once belonged to DeGeneres highlights its quality.

'If Ellen is buying it, lived there or owns it, it's a great piece of property,' he said. 

According to House Beautiful, DeGeneres had purchased the home in 2015 for $15.995million and flipped it before selling to Gross. 

The comedian has developed quite the reputation for flipping high-end homes. 

Gross, who has an extensive property portfolio, filed for divorce from Bill Gross in 2016 after 31 years of marriage. 

In 2018, Bill was accused of spraying his $20million marital home with fart spray after he was forced to hand over the keys to the mansion to Gross as part of a divorce settlement. 

Gross claimed that Bill sprayed noxious scents around the home and even crammed dead fish into air vents, making her life 'an unmitigated nightmare' for several months. 

She noted when she finally gained access to the property it had been left in a 'state of utter chaos and disrepair'.
