More and more homes in the Casa Linda Estates area have been torn down, with towering two-story houses filling lots where rambling stone ranches once stood. That’s happening all over Dallas’ close-in neighborhoods, some may note. However, it’s laudable to see a builder come in and expand a home in a way that adds a fresh face to it without taking over the large lots for which Casa Linda Estates is known. 
 
That’s what makes this gorgeous rebuild from Tivoli Construction our High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans. Taking an already great home with sturdy bones in a great neighborhood with a fabulous location and transforming it into a stylish, modern house fit for family life is no small task, said listing agent David Collier of David Griffin & Company Realtors.
 
Right from the spacious front deck, which wraps the front of this updated midcentury ranch at 1540 San Saba, you can tell that this rebuild is something completely different. Not only was the interior completely redesigned, but there are so many wonderful touches outside the home, cementing its status as a High Caliber Home. Spoiler alert: It’s priced under $1 million, too!
