About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms + Attached Unit, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
Four Mile Village is a tiny, gated community with only 35 home sites on approx 350 acres. Two thirds of the property in undeveloped and held in trust as the Coffeen Nature Preserve.
Stay in 'Mockingbird Hill' and enjoy Gulf views accentuated by the many sliding glass 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 separate Studio Apartment downstairs which is accessed by an outside staircase only. This can be added as a fourth bedroom and bathroom 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.
Turn east along the shore past the last Village home and you are on the secluded, pristine, preserved 2 mile stretch of beach within Topsail Hill State Park Preserve .
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 east to the private 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.
