If a nicely done renovation makes a property sing a fresh tune, then two talented house flippers have created an entirely new songbook for one Casa View Oaks home built in 1954.   

Casey Barton and Raymond Graham have taken a cramped, outdated house and reimagined every element. 2468 Highwood Dr. is in Dallas’ up-and-coming neighborhoods in deep East Dallas, a few miles from White Rock Lake. Flippers are starting to see the potential here and several houses have undergone transformations. This one stands out with a sleek aesthetic, unexpectedly luxe touches, and on-trend design. 

Barton and Graham enclosed the garage to create a master bedroom, bathroom, and walk-in closet and reconfigured the rest of the home’s floorplan. This added a bathroom and 275 square feet, making it three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,395 square.

“We tore down the wall between the kitchen and what is now the dining room — what is now the living room used to be a bedroom,” said Barton. “We also added onto the original hardwoods, carrying them throughout the kitchen and master addition.” 

The team will list tomorrow for $295,000 and there’s an open house Sunday from 2-4 p.m. Want a sneak peek and a look at some before-and-after photos?

Barton-Graham Strike Again with Beautiful and Bold Buckner Terrace Renovation | CandysDirt.com

We’ve been following the remarkable work of a dynamic design and real estate duo making their mark in East Dallas. Today, we’re looking at their latest project in Buckner Terrace. 

Casey Barton and Raymond Graham are the talent behind the renovated house at 3214 Sharpview Ln. This pair have been at it for several years, turning dumpy dives into delightful digs with function, flow, and fabulous style. (If you want to see what we’ve featured before, check out this house, this house, and this house.) 

“This is our third flip on the 3200 block of Sharpview, so one of our biggest challenges we faced was making it look different from the house we flipped directly across the street,” said Graham. “We definitely have a look that brands us [with elements like] painted brick, a reflective address plaque, a pop of color on the front door, midcentury elements, geometric shapes, and mixed chrome and gold throughout the house.” 

Today’s Thursday Three Hundred offers those things plus an open floorplan, original refinished and new solid oak hardwoods, and a huge master suite with a to-die-for closet — and that’s just the beginning. The house has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living areas, two dining areas, and 1,950 square feet on one story, built in 1965. 

There’s an open house this Sunday, March 25, from 2-4 p.m. Would you like to look around beforehand?
