Mickles Valley View Ranch was one of the best known cutting horse and race horse breeding and boarding facilities in Texas. In 1997, the Mickle family shifted their focus from the commercial operation of the ranch to the development of the property and Canyon West Golf Club. The ranch features extensive equestrian improvements including two huge mare motels, four homes, two barns, covered pens, fencing, and a drip irrigated pasture.

Offered in 25 beautiful estates, Mickles Valley View Ranch will sell to the highest bidders at the auction. Located in an ideal spot between the Brazos and Trinity Rivers, bounded by Old Mill Creek and surrounded by canyons, mesas, and hills, these secluded tracts feature panoramic views and homesites just a cart ride away from the Canyon West Golf Club.

For those looking at the property as an entirety, it enjoys more than 2/3 mile of frontage along I-20 and a 16ft x 40ft billboard, providing unparalleled visibility and easy access for future development.

The ranch estates are located in Parker County, Texas, just a few miles west of Weatherford, the cutting horse capitol of the world. A quick trip east on I-20 to Fort Worth provides access to world-renowned art, historical, and cultural museums, fine and ethnic dining, quaint boutiques and excellent universities, not to mention a wide variety of seasonal activities and events.
