The new iPhone 5S may be the hot topic of late, but today is all about the iHouse, as in the former Las Gatos home of Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak.
Not only is he credited as the designer for the Apple 1 personal computer, but Woz is also credited as designing the contemporary home in 1986. The architecturally quirky property originally came to market in September 2012 for $4.5 million. It resurfaced in March with a slightly slimmer price tag and has since seen another price adjustment, relisting in recent days for $4.152 million.
The original Woz estate was completed roughly a year before Woz’s full-time tenure at Apple came to a close. Sited on a shaded, 1.2-acre parcel, the home is just a short drive away from the tech giant’s corporate headquarters in Cupertino, CA.
Described as “post-modern style with majestic natural views,” the 7,100-square-foot home underwent a complete re-design at the hands of designer Larry Willard and architects Avi Agasi and Amnon Levy in 2006. It features a unique, geometrically-inspired design with numerous windows and light vestibules, including a circular stained glass skylight in the chef’s kitchen, which invites a wealth of natural light. And, like Apple’s latest product unveiling, the home is not without its own colorful design twist: a fireman’s pole linking the home’s two floors.
