Sue Gross, ex-wife of retired billionaire bond king Bill Gross, is listing a Beverly Hills estate for $38 million.
Located above Sunset Boulevard near the Greystone Mansion, a local landmark and a popular filming location, the roughly 5,300-square-foot Midcentury Modern property sits behind large double gates. The home has four bedrooms, teak and Ipe wood detailing, a walnut kitchen with a skylight as well as a covered patio. There is also a large outdoor pool, according to the listing agents.
In an email, Ms. Gross said she was drawn to the home for its “resort-like” feel. “It provides an escape without having to leave the city,” she said.
Ms. Gross bought the home in an off-market deal from Ellen DeGeneres and her wife Portia de Rossi for $35 million in 2018, records show. Ms. Gross said the celebrity talk show host, who is known for flipping high-end homes, had done an extensive renovation, but Ms. Gross still invested in customizing the property to her own tastes.
Justin Krzyston of Stonehurst Group, Ms. Gross’s property manager and general contractor, said the revamp included adding two additional bathrooms and creating a custom hand-raked limestone fireplace surround in the living room. Ms. Gross also upgraded the smart home systems.
