Inside Steve Jobs’ Home in Palo Alto

Tucked away on a Palo Alto corner of Waverley Street, Steve Jobs enjoyed family life in his 1930s Tudor-style home. The late Apple CEO Steve Jobs bought the Palo Alto home in the mid-1990s, after his marriage with Laurene. The 5,768-sq ft modest house sits on over a half acre and includes 7 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. The house is very much of the “British country style,” fitting beautifully with the rest of this quiet neighborhood — and certainly didn’t stand out as the house of a high-tech mogul.

Lane Wallace wrote about Jobs, her neighbor, in the Atlantic. She talks about the “calming” nature of his home and the neighborhood: “The corner where Jobs lived, however, was my favorite corner and block in the entire neighborhood. If I was really upset or stressed, I might walk up and down the two blocks that framed his house multiple times, just because it was so beautiful, and somehow so calming that I’d always leave there feeling better…. And I like being able to remember him that way: quiet, calm, and anonymous, surrounded by simplicity and beauty that changed with the seasons, but were always, somehow, inspiring.”

There are not many photos of the inside of Steve Jobs’ Palo Alto house, expect for pictures of Jobs’ home office (below) taken for a Time Magazine article. The Time reporter added: “The Steve Jobs who is currently running two sophisticated companies lives in a turn-of-the-century English-style country house in Palo Alto with his wife Laurene. The house is run with a distinct 1960s flavor. Laurene has planted a garden of wildflowers, herbs and vegetables all around. The rooms are sparsely decorated, the only extravagances being Ansel Adams photographs.”
