I wouldn't care about the house. I would keep fighting the custody issue at least until he has supervised visits.
I think the gift thing about the house is true though.

I have a friend that got screwed out of her half of the equity of the house because he used money that his grandmother had given him, even though they had rolled the equity from other houses in to this one. He hid his money really well and had the cash flow to pay attorneys and CPAs to make things look like they weren't community property. He is emotionally and has been physically abusive to the kids and there really isn't anything she can do about it but provide the kids with therapy. If the kids tell the therapist about the abuse then it becomes record. if it comes from the parent then it's hearsay. They have to be careful because there is so much coaching from resentful parents.
Put your kids in therapy with an advocate that they can trust to tell the truth to.

It would all depend on specifics of accounting. How did you close on the house? Did he write a check from his personal trust or from a family trust from his family (one that maybe his grandparents put money into for him)? If so, then that could create a sticky situation. If you have the money, ask your attorney about getting a forensic CPA to track his money.
As for the kids, document any abuse they report to you in a journal. If there are physical marks, take pictures and report him. I stand by the therapy suggestion as well, as this can be an advocate for you in court should it come to that.
