Steve Jobs' Pet Project Exudes Apple Practicality

Despite the success he's had in the office, back at the ranch, our beloved Apple CEO had a rough go of things. For years, Steve Jobs had been desperately trying to demolish his Spanish Colonial Revival Jackling House which he purchased in 1984. He grew tired of the 17,250 square feet and 14 bedrooms around the late-'90s, moved out, and got a permit to demolish it in 2004. However, a preservation organization called Uphold Our Heritage challenged the move in court and won the right to keep the mansion standing and Steve Jobs fuming.

But last year, the matter was re-reviewed in court and Jobs got the go-ahead to tear down that 1925 structure and build up a brand new estate. And this week, Gizmodo got its hand on the purported plans for the future Jobs abode.

Compared to the previous mansion, the new $8.5 million single family home shows incredible restraint. It's one-third the size and opts for more yard space for gardens and stone walkways. According to Gizmodo's Bryan Gardiner, "Everything is neat, tight, pragmatic, and in its place."

Hmm, sounds awfully familiar. It would seem that Jobs' future home will be, as Gardiner puts it, the "iPhone of houses."

The construction is estimated to take around 22 months to complete with a final, detailed set of plans to be submitted long before ground is broken. For Jobs' sake, here's hoping the plans are still legible no matter which way its held.
