She is selling the property because she has another house nearby that is nearing completion.

The four-bedroom house was adapted to her personal taste with the help of her interior designer Sheldon Harte and her property manager and general contractor Justin Krzyston.

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

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

Gross’s ex-husband Bill made his fortune with PIMCO Investment Management and has made headlines in the past for youthful tactics involving his properties.

“If Ellen buys it, lives there or owns it, it’s a great piece of land,” he said.

According to House BeautifulDeGeneres had bought the house in 2015 for $15.995 million and flipped it over before selling it to Gross.

The comedian has built quite a reputation for flipping high-end homes.

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

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

Gross claimed Bill spread noxious odors throughout the house and even stuffed dead fish into vents, making her life “an unmitigated nightmare” for months.

She noted that when she finally gained access to the property, it was left in a “state of utter chaos and disrepair.”
