In the asymmetric unit of the title compound, C38H 56O3, there are two symmetry-independent molecules that differ in the rotation angle along the C - O bond between the 3-(4-ethoxyphenyl)prop-2-enoate and cholest-5-en-3β-yl groups by 169.3 (3)°. In both molecules, steroid ring B adopts a half-chair conformation, rings A and C adopt a chair conformation and ring D exists in an envelope form. The two symmetry-independent molecules pack in the crystal into separate layers parallel to (1̄02) with their long axis parallel to the  direction. Short intermolecular C - H⋯O and C - H⋯π contacts are observed.
