Modern Splurge Vs. Traditional Steal In Casa Linda and Little Forest Hills

This week we take you to the Casa Linda Estates and Little Forest Hills area, where a modern new build and traditional cottage are the highlights of our Splurge vs. Steal. There are lots of details to love in both, but their price points and styles are miles apart. Which one catches your eye, the Little Forest Hills Splurge or the Casa Linda Estates Steal?
