Marc Maron’s house pictured in January

Highland Park   Marc Maron sold his 2-bedroom Spanish-style home with its famous garage that served as his podcast studio for $920,000 — $171,000 above the asking price, according to Redfin.

Countless WTF guests — including then President Barack Obama — traveled to Maron’s home in the 1800 block of Phillips Way to be interviewed for the podcast. “This home’s new resident will own a piece of history,” said the listing.

The 1927 home has less than 1,000-square-feet of space but is located on a large hillside lot with a deck and multiple terraces.

Maron purchased the Spanish-style home for $375,000 in 2003.

What prompted the move? Looks like Maron needed a new and larger studio.

“It started to look like a sad roadside attraction,” Maron told the  the New York Times earlier this year of his crowded garage studio. “Dust and cobwebs. People were going to be like: This is weird and gross.”

It’s not clear where Maron has moved but the New York Times reported that he will be moving his studio into a more spacious garage of a Craftsman-style home located about 10 minutes away.
