Contemporary and Modern Style Homes in The Santa Barbara and Montecito CA. Area

As a real estate agent in the Santa Barbara area, I have the priviledge of viewing a lot of wonderful homes across all price points.  We live in a town in which there is a good amount of disposable income and wealth which leads to the fact that there are a lot of people that build and / or remodel some very magical properties.  The end product is often a pleasure to see. One of the more popular style homes over the last 20 years has been the modern contemporary style home.  Within this style there is in my opinion a decent amount of interpretation.  Some contemporary homes are very drastic while others simply have a "clean straight line" feel.  In addition to this, we see a good amount French, Spanish, Cottage style homes on the exterior that then have a more modern style interior. Here below are a few pictures and descriptions of some recent amazing contemporary homes in our area. 1) 2363 Whitney Avenue, Summerland CA.  Newly constructed 3bed/2.5 bath with design elements that create an innovative contemporary retreat.
