Discover Orange County Modern and Contemporary Homes For Sale

The chief appeal of modern and contemporary architecture comes from the sheer variety of home styles that fit into this category. Ranging from modernist classics to new buildings on the cutting edge of architectural fashion, Orange County contemporary homes for sale are universally compelling. The distinctive look of flat or low-pitched roofs, floor-to-ceiling glass windows and sliding doors, and clever use of natural materials like wood and concrete all contribute to a feeling that you're seamlessly connected to the surrounding landscape. The most desirable of these properties are perched along cliffs and ridgelines too, framing dramatic panoramas of the surrounding countryside.

Though many of these homes have been described as works of art, Orange County modern and contemporary real estate doesn't sacrifice on the human element. Reflecting the easy living of Southern California, they tend to be equipped with modern comforts and conveniences. You can expect high-quality kitchen appliances, large bathrooms and master bedrooms, walk-in closets, and generous square footage from all of these homes. The most luxurious of the oceanfront properties, of course, include opulent bonuses you won't find elsewhere, like:

  • fully-equipped home gyms
  • private beach club access
  • smart house technology
  • maid's quarters
  • wine cellars for 700 bottles

Whether you want your home to be a striking showpiece or simply appreciate innovative architecture, the range of homes you'll discover in these Orange County modern real estate listings is truly astounding.

Life in Orange County Contemporary and Modern Real Estate

At times it might seem like the Orange County lifestyle is all about the Pacific ocean—and why not? Orange County modern and contemporary homes for sale are perfectly situated to take full advantage of miles of gorgeous California beaches, including Laguna Beach, Corona del Mar, and Crystal Cove. Here, you'll discover plenty of surf, sand, and fun along the boardwalks and piers. From whale watching tours to surfing to sandcastle competitions, there's a diversion for everyone here. The cities and towns of the region are also home to excellent restaurants and retailers. Fans of luxury shopping, for instance, will love visiting the boutiques at South Coast Plaza and Fashion Island.

Yet there's much more to life in Orange County because it's also a profoundly livable place. Families, in particular, will appreciate that the OC sports some of the safest communities in California. Three of the county's elementary schools were recently named National Blue Ribbon Schools, and a number of local high schools have received wide recognition for innovative academic, arts, and technical programs. Major arteries, like the I-5 and I-405, make getting around easy, while more scenic routes like the Ortega or Pacific Coast highways may not always be practical but will dazzle you with spectacular sights.
