About Joyce Mikkelson

I have been working for the Center for International Trade at the college in Chico for the past 17 years. I grew up in Manhattan Beach California. I enjoy theater, the arts, Soroptimists, and the guests I have had continuously visit the house in the last 3 years.

Joyce Mikkelson purchased this house in 1990

Why Joyce Mikkelson chose Shasta Cascade

This 1/4 acre property has a large grass areas a patio with BBQ. You can go swimming in the creek about 2 blocks from the house. There is a fire pit, and a large grass area to play ball. It feels like a resort with the gardens and cut flowers in the suites. I have lived in Chico for 32 years and feel this community is very special. People are friendly and the town is very active and sporty. There are bike paths, streams, fishing close by.

What makes this house unique

The house has a chef kitchen, open floor plan, a large backyard with Redwoods, Oaks and Cherry trees. It is in a safe cul-de-sac and only 1 block from the park.

This home is a piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

This home is a piece of heaven, all what we need to feel home away from home. Baby wanted Daddy to get the house for him. So cozy, we loved the design, the décor, the kitchen, the garden but most of all… the wonderful redwood trees…feels like you go to the backyard and suddenly you are walking in a trail of Sequoia Park…that marvelous it is!

Wonderful stay at Roth St House

  • 5 of 5

Terrific house in Roth St which suited the needs perfectly for our family of 7 visiting from London. The house was really spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. We were in Chico to visit our relatives and this home really did make our visit very comfortable and memorable. Joyce was a pleasure to deal with and very helpful. We would definitely return for future family gatherings in Chico!

Perfect Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family during our trip to Chico. It is exactly as described, with comfortable furnishings and all the modern conveniences one would want. It is in a quiet and well kept neighborhood in a convenient part of town. I definitely recommend this home, and you will find Joyce to be very easy to work with.
