Wellington: The Silicon Valley home where Apple co-founder Steve Jobs built some of his first computers has been added on the city`s list of historic properties.

The historical commission in the city of Los Altos voted unanimously for the historic designation.

According to, the home, where Jobs and his foster parents moved in 1968, is owned by Jobs` sister, Patricia Jobs.

The commission did not need her permission for the designation, although she could appeal it to the City Council.

According to the report, Steve Jobs, with help from his sister and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, built the first 100 Apple I computers at the home.

Steve Jobs also wooed some of Apple`s first investors and in 1976, established the first partnership for Apple at the home, the report added.

The company later relocated to nearby Cupertino.
