Buyer of Groucho Marx’s former home tries for $4.2M flip

Groucho Marx once said that, “While money can’t buy happiness, it certainly lets you choose your own form of misery.”

The new owner of a Hollywood Hills West residence once owned by the famed comedian seems to feel the same way. They’re gunning for a tidy profit by listing the property for $4.2 million, a 22 percent markup over the $3.45 million they paid for it just six months ago.

The 1930s-era, two-story Traditional comprises four bedrooms and four bathrooms, the Los Angles Times reported. It spans 3,700 square feet and features a library, a wet bar, a powder room, a writer’s nook, a covered porch and a balcony in the master suite. Outside, there are multiple patios and a shower room with a sauna.
