Dan Aykroyd and his wife, actress Donna Dixon, have placed their 5,000-sq.-ft., Cape Cod-style home of 25 years in the Hollywood Hills on the market for $4.2 million.

The private, gated estate is set on lush, isolated and densely foliated grounds of more than three-quarters of an acre. Built in 1951, the residence contains five bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms and a large country-style kitchen with adjacent staff quarters.

The extensive master suite has an attached office and weight room/gym. French doors from the den lead out to the swimming pool and English gardens. There's also a library/studio and fireplaces in the den, master bedroom, kitchen and dining room – six fireplaces in all.

The home, which is listed with Barry Sloane of Sotheby’s International Realty Beverly Hills, also comes with plenty of "soul," having served as the site of numerous parties in the '60's when previous owners included Ringo Starr, of the Beatles, and then "Mama" Cass Elliot, of the Mamas and the Papas.
