Updated: Woz' Former Los Gatos Home on the Market for $4.5 Million

Famous computer engineer is said to be planning a move to Australia or New Zealand seeking new adventures.

The former Los Gatos mansion of Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, a.k.a. Woz, is on the market for $4.5 million.

Located at 300 Santa Rosa Drive, the 7,500 square foot, six-bedroom, eight-bathroom home sits on 1.19 acres in the Los Gatos Mountains, according to its real estate posting on the redfin.com website.

The listing, posted courtesy of Sothebys International Realty's Art Sharif, says the two-story modern/high tech/contemporary style house "combines post-modern style with majestic natural views.

"It is a natural abode full of light and warmth Euro chefs kitchen, wraparound terraces. Recent major re-design and renovation, indoor kids play area, pool w/ waterfall, Koi Pond."

The famous computer engineer and programmer, who founded Apple Computer with Steve Jobs and Ronald Wayne, is said to be planning a permanent move to Australia.

Correction: This story has been revised. An earlier version mistated Woz' ownership of this home. He's no longer the deed holder on this property. Everybody makes mistakes ... even us!

I just emailed the Woz asking for comment! Stay tuned for more clarity on this. Thank you.

The Woz emailed us back with more details about his impending move to Australia. Will post another story on this tomorrow. Stay tuned. But Gail and Rene are right. He said in his email that he owned the property 10 years ago and sold it.

As I mentioned on my post to FB, the Wozniaks live on Blackberry Hill. Their home is not currently on the real estate market.

Hi Rene ... we're posting a story on this later today. Stay tuned! The Woz emailed me yesterday, but you're correct.

I wonder why it suddenly gained so much attention. The listing has always mentioned it was built for Woz. Nice bit of publicity for it though, maybe it will help get it sold for the current owners.
