Steve Jobs' Memphis House Looks Empty




I was little bored yesterday and decided to go take a look at the house that the national media have decided is being occupied by Apple CEO Steve Jobs. The backstory, in case you haven't heard, is that Jobs supposedly had a liver transplant in Memphis and has purchased a house here. The house in question, according to several websites, is on Morningside Place, only a few blocks from my own extensive Midtown holdings.

Morningside Place is a lovely, lovely street, just off Parkway East. Large oaks shade the winding cul de sac. A few children play on the median. From the street, 36 Morningside looks empty — no window treatments, no cars in the drive, no signs of occupancy. It doesn't even look like a "mansion." But from space, via satellite, it's much more impressive, certainly a worthy joint for a man of Jobs' means. They probably even have wireless.


But there's no security, at least none that was visible. I did read that there were cameras installed in the trees. If so, they got a nice shot of me jumping out of my ancient 4-Runner and snapping a pic of the place. Hi, Steve! Call me — 575-9450 — and we'll do lunch. I'd be happy to show you around the Bluff City.
