Casa Elegante, 4 Bedrooms, AC, Game Room, Sleeps 10, Fireplace, Gas Grill
You’ll understand how Casa Elegante got its name as soon as you pull into the home’s crescent drive. The large windows and front porch make a wonderful first impression—and inside, the 4-bedroom house makes an equally fabulous second impression.
Casa Elegante offers numerous spaces where everyone can hang out together in comfort and style, making memories that will last for years to come. It also includes plenty of spaces where you can slip away for one-on-one chats or private time. For instance, there’s a room furnished with plush couches and Spanish Colonial-style furnishings with wrought-iron flourishes that would be the living room in many other homes. Here it’s a sitting room perfect for indulging in a nap while the others gather in the main living area.
That main living area is part of Casa Elegante’s spacious great room. The towering ceiling and huge windows give it an airy, open ambiance. The leather couch and armchair, the well-cushioned stools of the breakfast bar, and the seating around the informal dining table ensure that the whole gang can watch TV, surf the web, play charades, or warm themselves by the wood-burning fireplace. Just off the great room is a game room, with a foosball table, another flat-screen TV, and a gas fireplace.
In addition to the table for 4 and the breakfast bar in the great room, there’s a table for 8 in the formal dining room. And even if your initial thought is “Who wants to cook while on vacation?” Casa Elegante’s kitchen is sure to bring out your inner Julia Child or Jamie Oliver. The stainless-steel appliances, including a 5-burner range, are set among handsome wood cabinets and plenty of gleaming black granite countertops. The rear patio has a gas grill as well. What’s more, tables and chairs dot the front and rear porches, so you can savor your wake-me-up cup of coffee alfresco amid the mountain breeze and sip after-dinner cocktails beneath a canopy of stars.
All 4 of Casa Elegante’s bedrooms are quiet havens, furnished in the same quietly luxurious style as the rest of the home. Each includes a flat-screen TV and a ceiling fan to help lull you to sleep. Three bedrooms feature a queen-size bed. The master suite is especially sumptuous. Not only does it boasts a lofty king-size bed, but it also has sliding glass doors that open onto the rear patio, so you and your sweetheart can treat yourself to a nightcap in the moonlight. Adding to the sense of romance is a gas fireplace, perfect for casting the room in a golden glow. Perhaps best of all is the jetted tub in the private master bathroom. The lavishly tiled bathroom has a separate shower too, along with dual sinks.
Casa Elegance has 2 other bathrooms as well, and any additional guests can sleep in the sitting room; one of the sofas opens into a queen-size bed, enabling the house to accommodate 10 people. When you arrive you’ll find all the beds impeccably made up, plenty of towels in all 3 bathrooms, and extra bedding ready and waiting. And because Casa Elegance has its own washer and dryer, you can pack lighter than usual.
The house’s large sloped yard is perfect for playing catch, and the kids will have a blast running around. But there are plenty more outdoor adventures to be had nearby. Less than 10 minutes away is Alto Lake and Recreation Area, where you can fish in the stocked lake and explore the surrounding trails via foot, mountain bike, or horseback. Just beyond the lake is Ruidoso Winter Park, where you can snow tube in winter and soar on a zip line year-round. And you can drive to Ski Apache in just over a half-hour.
Casa Elegante is a perfectly furnished home in a perfect location—which means it is the perfect base for a perfect vacation. Book your stay today, before someone else beats you to it! Please remember that Ruidoso is a mountain town with snow and icy conditions during the winter. This can affect driving and parking conditions regardless of the property, driveway, or roads.
