The two-story foyer opens to formal living and dining rooms. The family room leads to the backyard, which contains a swimming pool and elevated spa.

Including a master bedroom with a covered patio and a walk-in closet, there are five bedrooms, five full bathrooms and a powder room.

Garman, 55, starred as the host of Spike’s “The Joe Schmo Show” for its three seasons. “The Ralph Report” podcaster does voice work on the current series “Family Guy,” “Robot Chicken” and “American Dad!”

The 4,228-square-foot house previously sold in 2008 for $1.865 million.
