Always striking, mid-century modern homes are constructed low to the ground using natural materials, and they typically feature open floor plans and big windows. Frank Lloyd Wright, the most famous name behind this movement, stressed continuity between the home and outside world by connecting porches and decks to interior rooms. For the same reason, he also promoted generous use of what he considered to be a magic material: glass. Orange County mid-century modern real estate reflects this worldview with spacious interiors and windows that draw in tons of natural light. Rooms flow into one another, and then outside onto balconies and porches, creating a sense of bigness regardless of the home's actual footprint.

Originating primarily in the mid-1960s, Orange County mid-century modern homes for sale have typically undergone extensive remodeling and rejuvenation in order to support the active, contemporary lifestyles of some of SoCal's most affluent inhabitants.
