Steve Wozniak, Co-Founder of Apple

Location: Los Gatos, California

Price: $1.125 million in 1987

Woz's playhouse: Wozniak built the house with kid-friendly features, like a cave in the backyard.

Wozniak, who co-founded Apple with Steve Jobs, purchased this Los Gatos home in 1987 for $1.125 million, about two years after Wozniak had already left Apple to start CL9, a remote control company. Wozniak is well-known for his work with kids, and the house--which he sold in 2004--served as the unofficial headquarters for Unuson, a company Wozniak uses to focus his educational and philanthropic efforts, like computer training for local students. According to a 2003 Wired profile of Wozniak, classes for Unuson were held in his three-car garage, which included "computer equipment, class supplies, and unopened cases of Jolt."
