    The outside of what Jobs' mansion used to look like.

    Almost two years ago Steve Jobs got permission to play architect and today the Apple CEO finally lived out his dreams.

    Rumors of Jobs' health should be put to rest after the company announced last week he was conducting meetings from his home and reports Monday that his Woodside mansion was torn down after years of legal wrangling.

    Jobs owns a Spanish Colonial Revival home built 86 years ago by architect George Washington Smith.

    The Apple front man lived in the home at 460 Mountain Home Rd. for 10 years before renting it out and eventually letting sit vacant and fall into decay.

    Jobs has had plans to tear down the structure and put a new house in its place but neighbors have fought him trying to convince him to preserve the historic home.

    But in separate court decisions and city council meetings, Jobs has repeatedly won approval to replace the home.
