    Default Bill Murray's New York country home up for sale

    A huge mansion once owned by Bill Murray, which contains the famous fireman's pole featured in his hit movie Ghostbusters, is up for sale.
    The iconic pole from the ghoulish 1984 comedy starts at the recording studio upstairs and runs down to the New York home's garage.
    The asking price for the Palisades, Rockland County home is $2.795 million.

    Country estate: the former home of Bill Murray is on the market for $2.795million

    Movie history: The home contains the famous fireman pole from Murray's hit movie Ghostbusters

    Restored from the 19-century the home is currently owned by the Oscar-winning composer David Shire and his wife, Didi Conn, who played Frenchy from the blockbuster Grease.
    The couple is hoping to get a high price because the stunning 5,100-square-foot Colonial home also boasts five bedrooms, five bathrooms and an impressive garden.
    Murray also revamped the mansion when he bought it in the early 1990s.


    Star owners: The home was restored by Bill Murray (left) in the 1990s, and was more recently owned by Didi Conn (right), who played Frenchy in Grease, and her husband, composer David Shire


    Unique feature: The pole has been designed to fit 'seamlessly into the house', estate agents says, and runs through three levels

    'It was in really poor condition,' a source told the media.
    'Murray completely rebuilt it and expanded it, sparing no expense. He gave it the feeling of an old farmhouse but with all the modern conveniences you could need.'
    For the actor, now 60, that included the pole from the famous New York City Ladder Co. 8 firehouse, which the ghost-busting cast slid down on their way to fight phantoms.

    Oasis: The New York state home is an idyllic hideaway surrounded by trees

    'It's a really fun piece. He incorporated it seamlessly into the house,' said Richard Ellis, of Ellis Sotheby's International Realty, the firm selling the converted barn.
    Shire, once married to actress Talia Shire, has scored music for screen hits including Saturday Night Fever, All the President's Men and The Conversation.
    'It's a gorgeous home and still has the renovations that Bill Murray did,' Ellis said.

    Luxury: The current owners, David Shire and Didi Conn, are asking for $2.795 million for the property

    Don't care for the decor all that much, but it's an awesome space to play with.

    I had no idea Bill Murray and Didi Conn were married.

    That is absolutely beautiful. I love all of it, especially the kitchen and the dining room with the fireplace. I'd live there in a heartbeat.

    I don't care for the decor, but it's workable. I just love him.

    I would buy it just for the fireman's pole, not even going to lie.

    Didi is married to Talia Shire's (Yo Adrian) former husband.

    I didn't know that Bill Murray had six children.

    I LOVE the house itself and the garden. I wouldn't want any of this furniture in my own house but I kinda like it in someone else's home .
