The former country home of "Gone With the Wind" actress Vivien Leigh has hit the market for about $5.9 million, according to a report in the Daily Mail.

The actress purchased the estate in 1961 and her ashes were scattered on the pond after she died in 1967, according to the report.

Potential buyers can purchase the almost 75-acre property as a whole or one of its three lots separately. The five-bedroom mansion reportedly has an ancient bluebell wood, a walled-garden and a separate gardener's cottage.

Leigh purchased the property after divorcing Laurence Olivier in 1960.

The property's present owners, Ken and Honor Higgins, have lived there since 2005.
