casa linda dallas homes for sale

It may get hotter than blue blazes during Dallas summers, but we have plenty of positively divine weather, too (stick your head outside today for proof—high of 74°!).

During these gorgeous days, outdoor space is a must. Today’s Tuesday Two Hundred, at 9206 Forest Hills Blvd., offers it in spades, with a secluded front courtyard and big backyard. This Casa Linda house sits on 0.33 acres, located near Buckner and Garland in East Dallas.

This is a 2-1 with 1,264 square feet, built in 1946. This is a modest-sized home, but with such a big yard, there’s plenty of room to add onto the house, if new homeowners desire.

It was listed Jan. 29 by Jenny Capritta with RE/MAX DFW Associates for $299,500.

As part of a holiday philanthropy project, two Lakewood RE/MAX agents organized a drive this month to collect children’s bicycles for The Wilkinson Center.

Barbara Reeves and Lee Dirickson, realtors at RE/MAX DFW Associates, collected 45 bicycles, helmets, and bike locks from other Lakewood RE/MAX agents and their business associates, and a Wilkinson representative picked them up last week.

“We are so grateful for the large donation of bikes and helmets from RE/MAX DFW Associates,” said Melanie Myers, President of The Wilkinson Center, which is a leading poverty rescue and prevention agency for the working poor, serving over 14,000 people annually, mainly in East and Southeast Dallas. “This donation will bring joy to the families served by Wilkinson Center and reflects the true spirit of the holidays.”

The Wilkinson Center will distribute the donated bicycles to qualified low-income families so their children can have a brighter Christmas.

“I’ve lived in this area and been in the real estate business for 40 years, and have known about the Wilkinson Center for years,” said Reeves. “I think everybody remembers their first bike and how you learned to ride it, that little stroke of independence and you turned around and mom or dad wasn’t holding on and you were just flying on your own.”

The Lakewood office of RE/MAX DFW Associates serves Lakewood, the M Streets, Lake Highlands, and other East Dallas neighborhoods.
