    Renowned actor, writer and director Harold Ramis’ six-bedroom mansion in Glencoe was sold for $2.3 million, according to The Chicago Tribune.

    The Chicago native, known for his long resume of comedy classics, including “Ghostbusters,” Illinois-based “Groundhog Day," and “National Lampoon’s Animal House," died Feb. 24, 2014.

    His widow placed their mansion on sale, and on Tuesday the couple's 8,357-square-foot mansion was sold. It includes Palladian windows, four fireplaces and two sunrooms, according to the Tribune.

    The publication also said that listing agent Nancy Gibson commented that during the staging process, "We found all of Harold's original movie scripts — 'Animal House,' 'Ghostbusters,' 'Groundhog Day' … just sitting in a cardboard box on the floor of the unfinished basement. We also found a 'Ghostbusters' belt that still had the residual white goop from the marshmallow man!"
