Cathy and Darren Lee have flipped about 20 homes in the last two years, but none of them were quite as distinctive as this Cliff May-designed midcentury modern in Casa View.

If 2620 Andrea Lane looks familiar, it’s because you’ve likely seen it while touring Casa View’s epic collection of California modern homes. Listing agent Alicia Lee will put this updated and expanded Cliff May on the market this evening for $310,000 — a record-setting price for the area. To find out more, call 972-978-6584.

Though many of these homes have been neglected or suffered incompatible renovations over the years, this particular home is solid — something Darren insists upon for all of his investment properties.

The Natural Grocers at Casa Linda Plaza was once home to a three-screen theater, one of the first to be integrated into a shopping center back in 1945. It closed in 1999, much to the chagrin of the neighborhood. 

East Dallas keeps on truckin’ up the list of the most popular parts of the city, and its neighborhood Casa Linda is no different. If you haven’t been around this little area of the land for awhile, you may be surprised at the growth and increasing coolness.
