Woz's House Has Cave, Murals For The Kids

wozniak_cave.jpgMore news from the Stuff I Won't Be Buying Dept.: Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak's house in Los Gatos, CA, was bought by some developers who did some extensive remodelling. But they left most of Woz's additions for his kids intact. The feature list includes:

  • The Little Mermaid Bedroom features an original Little Mermaid mural painted by original Disney artist Erick "The Wiz" Castellan.
  • The Children's Discovery Complex, a 500sf collection of rooms on multiple levels that serve as an interior children's playground, complete with separate bedroom, firemans' pole, stairs, ladders, slides, and more, "accessed through a tiny, kid-size door surrounded by elaborate molding with a dinosaur design."
  • Woz's Cave, commissioned from the SF Academy of Sciences, it's a set of authentic prehistoric limestone caves that feature dinosaur footprints, stalactites, stalagmites, embedded gemstones, mineral shells, and other fossilized materials in the limestone strata. There's a window view up into the koi pond, and a complete audio/video entertainment center, too. [You know, just like in prehistoric times.]
  • Asking price: $10 million.

    Oh man, I've always wanted to live in a cave. Must be a genetic thing from 10,000 years ago. When I was a kid, one of my favorite areas of Disneyland was "Injun Joe's Caves" on Tom Sawyer's Island. I loved getting lost in those.

    I wonder if Wozniak's kids turned out okay as adults? Sounds like they were spoiled silly.

    Oh that Woz! He took all of those ideas from my kids rooms (yeah right).
