Since you say it was a marital agreement, I am not surprised that he won a Specific Performance suit. It was fortunate that he was required to pay his own attorneys fees. If the house will not sell then a Chapter 13 would be more helpful than the Chapter 7 if you are wanting to keep the house. Why will it not sell? Are you living in the house? Have you offered to let him occupy the house and pay the mortgage? You could live better in a modest apartment off of your alimony. If the house has to be sold, why don;t you buy it?
