A former WeWork top executive has listed the Brentwood mansion he bought last year from Lindsey Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac.

Michael Gross is asking $32 million for the 10,000-square-foot home, records show. The property has seven bedrooms and 11 bathrooms on a 1.2-acre lot, according to multiple listing service information.

Gross paid $28 million for the home in July 2019. Buckingham and his wife had the property custom-built, and it includes a recording studio.

Danny Brown with Compass and David Offer with Berkshire Hathaway have the listing. Gross and his wife, Amy Miller Gross, are moving back to the East Coast to be closer to family, according to Offer. Brown represented Gross as buyer last year.

The mansion was built over three years, after the property was purchased in 2004. In addition to the studio, it has a two-story tower and billiards rooms. The grounds include a large swimming pool, tennis court, standalone gym and pool pavilion, and a guesthouse.

Gross and his wife bought the property as WeWork was gearing up for an initial public offering. The IPO fell apart as the company’s financials and corporate structure came under scrutiny.

In late September 2019, Gross was pushed out along with a handful of other WeWork executives seen to be close with founder Adam Neumann, who himself had recently stepped down as CEO. Gross’ departure came a few weeks after the IPO was postponed.

Gross and his wife also owned a triplex in Manhattan’s Tribeca neighborhood at the time they bought the Brentwood home.
