The mansion of the legendary actor, writer and director Harold Ramis has been placed on the market. Originally constructed in 1923, the six-bedroom and 8, 357-square-foot house has been listed at more than $2.59 million. Nancy, Harold’s widow, decided to put the suburban home up for sale following his death early last year from a rare autoimmune condition.

The couple had paid about 1.9 million to buy the vine-covered mansion. In 1996, they decided to buy a house in Glencoe to get closer to the actor’s aging parents. The property covers little less than an acre, has a pool and is surrounded by lush landscaping, the Chicago Tribune reported.

Last year, Nancy donated their 11, 255 square foot mansion located in Lake Forest to a local hospital to help it with a fundraising campaign.

Harold Ramis, a prolific actor, director, as well as screenwriter, is best-remembered for playing the character of Egon Spengler in 1980s cult movie Ghostbusters. He made a name for himself as comedy writer and won the BAFTA Award for Best Original Screenplay in 1993, along with Danny Rubin, for the movie Groundhog Day. He directed successful comedies, including Groundhog Day and Analyze This.
