Welcome to Michelle Dr, a picture perfect ranch finely finished with high quality and stylish features. Nestled in the Sierra Nevada foothills just a few minutes from all the shopping and dining in Auburn, this five acre property is fenced and cross fenced with gently rolling hills and a serene pond. A two stall loafing shed with runs awaits your equine friends; a large leveled area in one of the pastures was an arena in the past and could be again.

This single-story home was extensively remodeled in 2012 with a focus on preserving the charming style while maximizing on the amazing views. The sunken living room boasts beamed and vaulted ceilings, drawing your focus to the Sierra Nevada views. The remote master suite offers loads of privacy, a luxurious bathroom and huge picture windows bringing the views to your bed side.

Tongue and groove barrel roll ceilings in the kitchen continue the stylistic themes of this home. Custom cabinetry, granite counters and high-end appliances make the kitchen a dream to live and work in and the picture window over the sink can make just about anyone want to do the dishes here. The solid walnut floors in the main living areas and kitchen create a warm, elegant feel to the spaces and are most definitely a conversation piece in the home.

An expansive, shady back deck creates another ideal location for gathering, entertaining, and soaking in those long range views. The property has public water to the house, a domestic well serving the pond, and also benefits from 1 miners inch of seasonal irrigation water. A delicious assortment of fruit trees compliment the towering shady oaks and produce a good variety of different tasty treats.


Auburn is in the heart of Northern California’s Gold Country, quietly tucked in the stunning Sierra Nevada Foothills about 45 minutes north of Sacramento. Acclaimed as the “Endurance Capital of the World” for being home to internationally renowned events such as the Tevis Cup, Wester States Endurance Run, and the Western States Trail Ride, the Auburn State Recreation Area hosts more endurance sporting events than any other venue globally. Auburn is also known as a bird sanctuary with local government and citizens alike working to preserve the pristine natural habitats of all the local wildlife. As the county seat of Placer County and with close ties to the California Gold Rush and the construction of the Transcontinental Railroad, Auburn’s rich historical roots are well preserved and celebrated.

With all it has to offer, Auburn has been a popular location for young families looking for a safe place to raise their kids, adventurers and outdoor enthusiasts, and city-slickers ready to stop and smell the roses. Auburn’s culture represents the diverse demographics and is a testament to what it means finding the balance between past and present. Welcoming community events gathering the town to celebrate local food, art, music and culture right in the main streets of the quaint Downtown and Old Town areas glance back to the mid-century charm of small town America. From festive parades celebrating national holidays like the annual 4th of July Parade, to formal exhibitions of local food and drink such as the “Auburn Cruise Nights,” residents and visitors alike appreciate the warm sense of family in this town.

The Placer Arts Counsel advocates for local artists, organizing and promoting local studio tours, exhibits, art walks and more. The Auburn Cruise Nights bring residents to the streets of Downtown for a free car show and street fair with local food and drink for all ages once a month from May to September. The charming Old Town area preserves the architectural stylings of the “old west”, in the shadow of the gorgeous Placer County Courthouse, Old Town Auburn is a well trafficked destination by locals and tourists alike for shopping, dining and nightlife. The Placer County Fairgrounds are also located in Auburn and are home to a myriad of entertainment, expositions, flea markets, trade shows, concerts, races and more. All that Auburn has to offer, and you are still less than a two-hour drive from popular destinations like Lake Tahoe and San Francisco; suddenly that day trip to the slopes or into the city for Christmas shopping amidst the lights and festivities in Union Square just became a reality.
