Steve Wozniak's House: The Other Whiz Behind Apple Also Designed Houses

By on March 18, 2013 in ArticlesCelebrity Homes

All eyes were watching Apple after Steve Jobs passed away.  Everyone was wondering how the company was going to fare without its visionary leader at the helm.  While it has stumbled a bit, it has largely remained a technological powerhouse.  Though the company is most often associated with Steve Jobs, it was actually built on the design and engineering work of one man, Steve Wozniak.  Mr.  Wozniak, who co-founded the company with Steve Jobs and Ronald Wayne, designed and built both the Apple I and Apple II computers.  Though the Apple I was moderately successful, it was the Apple II  that ultimately put Apple, Inc. on the map.  Mr. Wozniak left the company briefly in the early 80s after an accident, and then returned to work as a regular employee.  He left for good in 1987, though he is still listed as an employee and receives a three-figure yearly stipend.  He has gone on to launch various successful ventures, both commercial and philanthropic.  He has also made television appearances on such shows as "Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List" and "Code Monkeys", and he competed on the eighth season of "Dancing with the Stars".  Basically, he's marched to the beat of his own drummer since before the success of Apple, and he's continued to do so.  Marching to his own beat, included designing his own house in California in the mid-80s.  That house, is currently on the market.

Steve Wozniak's house has six bedrooms and eight bathrooms, spread out over 7,500 square feet.  The home has actually had a few other owners over the years, but it still looks very much like it did when Mr. Wozniak first built it.  In addition to the bedrooms, Steve Wozniak's house also has a playroom, a massive state-of-the-art kitchen with a stained glass skylight, a wraparound balcony, a terrace, and a multi-car garage.  The home also features hardwood floors, floor-to-ceiling windows, and multiple fireplaces.  Outside Steve Wozniak's house there is a koi pond, and a  swimming pool with its own waterfall.  The home is currently on the market for $4.395 million.  Who wants to bet that the next owner will be an Apple fan?
