That’s nearly $200K above the asking price

Comedian and podcaster Marc Maron has officially parted ways with his Highland Park home—and earned quite a profit on the transaction, as Eastsider reports.

Property records show that Maron purchased the low-key two-bedroom residence in 2003 for just over $375,000. He started recording the popular WTF podcast in the detached garage behind the house in 2009.

Maron, who has now, as the New York Times reports, moved on to a larger Craftsman-style home nearby, listed the property in March. Last week it sold for $920,000—nearly three times its last purchase price and an astonishing $171,000 above the $749,000 that it was listed for.

The home, built in 1927, is quite charming, with hardwood floors, coved ceilings, and an elegant living room fireplace. The airy kitchen has tile floors and flows directly into a formal dining room.

Sitting on a sizable 8,114-square-foot lot, the house has just 932 square feet of living space, but leads out to a large wooden deck, as well as a garden and patio space.

The house might also be historic landmark material someday, having hosted a legion of notable podcast guests, including former president Barack Obama.
