Property description

'Casa Elena' is a Spanish-Colonial styled house located in the beautiful community of Verrado, home of the renowned Raven Golf Course. The home includes private outside courtyards, which provide beautiful sun-rise and sunset views. The backyard has a private heated pool and propane gas BBQ. Two bicycles with helmets are stored in the garage opened by a garage-door-opener.

Casa Elena features high ceilings, numerous indoor archways, and nearly 1900 sq. ft. of indoor living space. From the moment you enter into the home through the rotunda, you'll know you've entered a beloved home. From the rotunda you enter into the Great Room which features a counter-height bar, comfortable dining for six and a den area with flat screen television and gas fireplace. Casa Elena also features central air and heat, and ceiling fans in almost every room, to make your stay individually and collectively comfortable.

Just off the kitchen area is a room dedicated to wine tasting. Feel free to enjoy one of the bottles provided or bring your favorite bottle with you. A great place for conversation and relaxing!

Casa Elena has three bedrooms each with flat screen televisions. Each room is decorated with your physical and visual comfort in mind. The master bedroom features a queen-sized bed with a Tempur-Pedic mattress. Ensuite master bathroom features a soaker tub, a separate shower, and a private water closet. The master suite comes complete with monogrammed soap and towels, as well as bathrobes for use during your stay. Flat-screen TV, VCR/DVD player with a small collection of VCR movies. The master bedroom has a wonderful view of the backyard pool area.

The second bedroom features a queen-sized, pillow-top bed. This room also has bathrobes available for use during your stay. Flat-screen TV. The second bedroom has a view of the park-like Verrado landscape from the front and side windows.

The third bedroom features twin beds. This third bedroom also houses a small library and various games. Flat-screen TV. This bedroom has a view of the front courtyard area.

The second bathroom is located near the second and third bedrooms, and has a shower/tub combination. This bathroom also features high-absorbancy, monogrammed bath towels.

The outdoor spaces are what make Casa Elena a truly wonderful vacation home. Your first introduction to the property is through the entry courtyard, which provides ample outdoor living space with wonderful views of Verrado and outdoor seating for a minimum of six people. From this vantage point you have a view Poet's Park, one of the numerous parks located in the Verrado development.

The backyard of Casa Elena contains a private heated pool (ALTHOUGH THERE ARE SAFETY DOORS FROM INSIDE THE HOME OUT INTO THE BACKYARD, THE POOL AREA IS NOT GATED. YOU ARE FULLY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SAFETY OF YOUR CHILDREN), outdoor dining space for six and lounging areas around the pool where you can just relax. It is from this backyard vantage point that you can most appreciate the sunrises. The backyard also contains a propane gas BarBQ grill for 'outdoor chefs.' An additional outdoor area is provided just off the 'wine room.' It is here that an intimate glass of wine can be enjoyed while watching the sun set, or where you can glimpse the humingbirds tasting the nector of blooming flowers.

Casa Elena is just minutes away from numerous outdoor activities, the most famous of which are the Spring Training Camps for major-league baseball teams and NASCAR tracks. In addition to two golf courses, there are walking, hiking and biking trails within the Verrado Community. Just minutes away are theatres, shopping, a zoo and acquarium. Professional sports arenas for football, hockey, and basketball are located nearby. The Botanical Gardens and the City of Scottsdale are less than an hour drive away from Casa Elena. The Cancer Treatment Center of America is 15 minutes away. For those wanting to get the very most from your vacation, Sedona and the Grand Canyon are 2 to 3 hours drive away, and both Los Angeles and San Diego are a mere 5 to 6 hours drive away. There is truly something for everyone in the Land of the Sun (Arizona) and at Casa Elena in Verrado!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Hi. I am a passionate decorator. Casa Elena has great structural bones. The house it truly a decorator's delight. I have traveled all over the world, and I have stayed in some very good hotels. It is my stay in these 'good' hotels that impels me to offer you the best possible accomodations at Casa Elena. It is my belief that a good vacation is made up of a combination of a good location and good accommodations. Verrado in Arizona provides the good location. Casa Elena provides good accommodations. I have done my best to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Please let me know where I can improve. Thanks for considering my vacation home.

Why the Owner Chose Buckeye:
I chose the community of Verrado because it had the most diverse collection of homes I'd seen in the greater Phoenix area. Additionally, every effort was made to give residents the benefits of fine living with a hometown feel. You can get to know your neighbors while maintaining your private oasis.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I really love the community of Verrado. Although this is a planned residential neighborhood, it offers so much more. For example, there is a 'Main Street' in Verrado that has a bank, grocery store, drug store, pizzeria, coffee/juice bar, gym; just over a 1 mile radius from Casa Elena. This makes living and vacationing here very convenient - you never have to leave unless you just want to. Additionally, the grounds are absolutely beautiful! Mountain views, sunrises and sunsets, with big sky views, add to the appeal. The neighbors are also wonderful; especially my neighbors across the street. Very welcoming community. There is a renowned golf course right on the property. I don't play golf but I have many friends who do. Personally, I enjoy the simple act of drinking my first cup of coffee in the front courtyard or on the back patio while watching the sun rise. After all, it is the simple things in life that make life worth living!
