Steve Jobs Gets Go-Ahead to Destroy Jackling Estate

After several years of tireless effort by preservationists to save the historic Daniel C. Jackling Estate in Woodside, California, its fate is now in the hands of owner, Apple and Pixar CEO, Steve Jobs. In December, the Woodside Town Council voted 4-3 to uphold the planning commission’s earlier decision to allow the 1920s estate to be demolished, despite appeals made by residents and business owners of this upscale Northern California town.


The only thing that could save the neglected Spanish Colonial Revival home from the wrecking ball would be a preservationist hero – someone willing and able to remove the structure from the site. Interested persons have until June 2005 to express their intentions to Jobs and the Town Council.

Architectural Historian, Michael Corbett has mixed feelings about the ill-fated estate. “The house is not public, it can’t be seen,” says Corbett, who evaluated the property in 2001. “I’m not sure what the role of historic preservation [should be] here. But on the other hand, it seems like such a waste to just throw it away.”
