Four Mile Village house description
Stay in newly renovated 'Mockingbird Hill' and enjoy breathtaking Gulf views accentuated by the new windows and sliding doors.
Large, light and airy rooms with interesting artwork and comfortable mattresses await you. The master king bedroom has a private bathroom.
This home has a completely seperate Studio Apartment downstairs which is accessed by an outside staircase only. This can be added as a fourth bedroom for larger groups and for older children responsible enough to sleep down stairs unsupervised.
The gazebo and deck, situated on the east side of the house is very private and offers cooling breezes as well as fabulous views of the surrounding dune vegetation. You can watch the groups of deer come and go on their daily walkabouts.
Bay trees will complement your seafood suppers which can be prepared on either the gas or the charcoal grill.
Step back in time and enjoy a preserved, natural, coastal dune habitat, complete with a 50 acre globally rare freshwater lake. Private beach access leads to one of the most secluded beach areas in the County. The property is gated and has no through roads.
The beach can not be accessed from the private lot shown in the view directly below the house. The community beach access is just over 1/2 mile by car where there is parking. You can walk down the dune from the home and follow the beach road to the community access (approx 250 yards.) Many guests rent a golf cart locally which makes getting to and from the beach a breeze.
This home is individually owned, but professionally managed by Susan Paladini for David Walker Realty, Inc. Susan is the Resident Caretaker for Four Mile Village and the Coffeen Nature Preserve.

If I were to design and decorate a beach house,it would be "Mockingbird Hill".Built high on a dune with clear view of beach and gulf, it has charm, character, and comfort. We spent the month of March in Four Mile Village and the Coffeen Nature Preserve--a very unique 200 plus acres with a few houses tucked among the trees and dunes with a spectacular beach.It is a Florida treasure. Highly recommended!!

This is a very beautiful, very comfortable home. Lovely furnishings. The living area is very large with a large dining table. Perfect for vacationing families to gather. My favorite part of the house is the gazebo, where you can sit on summer evenings and enjoy the wonderful gulf breezes.

We absolutely adored our stay at this Four Mile Village property. The rental agent was very nice and spoke more than once with us about the interesting history surrounding this area. I feel like the photos of this property do NOT do it justice at all. It is a HUGE, beautiful home with tons of space. The beach is so private and we hardly saw any other people the whole week. There were never more than three groups of people at once on the whole stretch of beach, which is very long. I wouldn't really recommend this for those looking for the party beach vacation. It's very calm and relaxing though and perfect for a couple or family retreat. The water here is VERY calm and crystal clear. I get a little woozy if I stay out in hard waves for very long, but I stayed out in the water for hours on end without a single difficult wave. We had a wonderful time and would definitely come back again!!
