Those who appreciate luxurious architecture and interior design, but are on a bare-essentials budget may find that now is the best time to invest in real estate. Due to the poor economy, many homes are priced significantly lower than they may have been just five years ago.

The new Pasado at Del Sur residences in California combine elegant design with affordable pricing. The houses - which were designed and built by William Lyon Homes - feature solar panels, pecan Beech cabinets, stainless steel appliances, surround sound pre-wiring and granite kitchen countertops. Each home comes complete with a stately courtyard for outdoor seating.

Pasado homes have two-story detached floor plans that range from approximately 2,047 to 2,360 square feet, with three to four bedrooms, two to three bathrooms and two-car garages.

The tree-lined neighborhood offer a wide variety of residential styles that are influenced by San Diego's architectural heritage. The development is adjacent to scenic hiking trails and within walking distance to Del Sur Elementary. A nearby community park with a lap pool and hot tub is currently under construction.

Adults who are interested in designing luxury homes may benefit from enrolling in an architectural degree program.
