Rumor: Jobs owns Memphis mansion near hospital

Jobs mansion in Memphis

Following reports that Steve Jobs received a liver transplant in Tennessee, a number of Memphis residents believe the executive secretly purchased a mansion in an upscale district in Memphis. The property is allegedly located on Morning Place, a quiet cul-de-sac with homes set back amongst old-growth oaks, according to the Memphis Flyer.

Alexander Halslip of peHUB claims the 7,500 square-foot was purchased last month by an LLC owned by a local law firm. A lawyer involved in the transaction declined to provide additional details, but he did not explicitly deny the idea that Jobs owns the property. "I have no comment and I do not know," he said.

The realtor also claimed to be unaware of the true resident, as she worked directly with the lawyers. "Everybody in Memphis has come up with a story on who bought that house," she said.

Neighbors allegedly claim the building has received comprehensive renovations in the past few months, along with installation of a network of security cameras. The property is also said to be protected by a security guard. None of the locals claim to have personally observed the new occupants, however.

Despite the availability of top-notch hospitals in the Bay Area, the average wait time for transplants in California is much longer than in Tennessee. If the rumors are true, Jobs may have purchased the home or established a temporary residence to recover from the transplant without venturing far from the hospital.

    It would be interesting..

    ... to know how much I have contributed to that mansion with all my Mac purchases from my first Mac LC to my Pro and all the 'puters in between including the Duo Dock.

    not that interesting...

    as Mr. Job's sale of Pixar to Disney for cash & stock is the source of most of his wealth and his Apple salary is still only one dollar I believe. And the sale of Next Computer to Apple before that... of course, he has a ton of Apple options.

    Could it be....

    that he Rented it???? Maybe the person who purchased it did so to rent it out. People actually do rent places like this...

    That's where Steve jails all the people who've failed him, like that Frank guy who gave Steve a camera with a dead battery during a keynote all those long years ago...:o)

    It's so ugly. It is hard to imagine Steve wanting to live in a house like that when you think of the sculpted works of high-tech art he produces at work. And the Mercedes he drives. I mean, think of that hideous "mansion" he's going to demolish in Palo Alto. Steve actually at some point had a tour and thought to himself "yes, this is the house I want to buy?" Astonishing.

    Who the heck cares? Do people react the same way to Bill Gates's life-style or Microsoft? I think not!
