Mickelsen Farm is a well-equipped equestrian breeding and training facility conveniently located between Portland and Seattle, just minutes from the I-5 corridor. Beautifully sited on a bluff overlooking the Cowlitz River, the main house is designed to take full advantage of the stunning views of Mount St. Helens and the river valley below.
The entry level features a large living room with floor to ceiling windows, three bedrooms, an updated bathroom and a spacious kitchen with granite counters, stainless appliances and double ovens. The kitchen opens to a casual dining area and an impressive family room with hardwood floors, vaulted ceiling, a gas fireplace and direct access to a view balcony with stairs to the pool area below.
The home's lower level features a fourth bedroom, a second updated bathroom, a pine-paneled sun room, a laundry room, storage and a large recreation room with a second kitchen and direct access to the pool area. A deck and cabana adjacent to the heated in-ground pool with solar cover make the pool area great for entertaining. The property also includes an attached over-sized one car garage and a security system with video monitors.
This mostly level 25.5 acre parcel is fully fenced and offers year-round pasture. The property features two separate pastures and six paddocks, one of which is used as a stud pen with a loafing shed. A well-maintained gravel drive leads to a parking pad in front of the barns that's large enough to accommodate a tractor trailer. Two separate septic systems service the main house and the barns. The property is served by a private well. Two adjacent 20 acre parcels are currently in pasture and available for sale separately. Mickelsen Farm is agriculturally zoned, which allows for significant annual property tax savings.
The property's horse facilities include two large barns separated by a concrete aisle. The main barn contains eleven 12' x 12' rubber matted stalls, a 72' x 120' indoor arena, a heated wash rack and an adjacent tack room. The back of the main barn leads directly to several paddocks, the pastures and a 90' x 150' outdoor arena.
The main barn also offers a 1156 square foot two bed, two bath caretaker's apartment with a full kitchen, a laundry room, laminate flooring and wall heaters. The apartment can be accessed from the front of the barn or from inside the barn aisle.
The second barn has eight 12' x 12' rubber matted stalls, a 60' covered round pen with a viewing deck and a laundry room with a lab area. This barn offers additional covered parking for vehicles as well as a shop area and hay storage. It could easily be reconfigured to accommodate additional stalls or indoor parking for larger vehicles and trailers.
