Four Mile Village Homes
Four Mile Village includes 47 total home sites and completed residences that sit on about one-third of the property adjoining the protected forest. Eleven of these are on Lake Fuller, which is a rare coastal dune lake. Twelve more are beachfront, while the rest are interspersed among the native sand pines, magnolias, oaks, and palmetto palms. The original modernist architecture, which still exists today, was inspired by famed architect Walter Gropius. Some of the newer homes built include beautiful contemporary designs with state-of-the-art kitchens and infinity-edge swimming pools with magnificent Gulf of Mexico views.
Four Mile Village Amenities
All the fortunate residents and their guests in Four Mile Village have access to the beautiful beach, the lovely lake, and nature trails that meander through the woods. The unmatched serene views at Four Mile Village is hard to beat. There is easy beach access for all the homes, whether gulf-front or situated more inland, there is either the community access point or private dune walkovers. The benefit of living amongst the magical "preserve" is the variety of scenic trails right in your backyard. Travel back into time on the Sand Pipe Military Trail, which meanders throughout the Titi swamp, and remains of the military bunkers can be discovered throughout the journey. Another great trail is the Flatwoods Hammock Trail, which takes you through the less-traveled side of Lake Fuller. This rare coastal dune lake can only be found on a few coasts globally and makes for unparalleled, relaxing, stress-relieving views every day.
Four Mile Village History
In 1930 this unique property comprised 3,000 acres and was purchased by Robert Bushnell who planned to use the land to raise livestock and grow crops. During World War II a large portion of his property was requisitioned by the military as a top-secret base to research captured German "Buzz Bomb" missiles. The nation's first American rockets were tested and launched out over the gulf from forested bunkers near the beach, the remnants of which can still be seen to this day. After World War II the property transferred in its entirety to Bushnell's sister Dorothy Coffeen who established her family's home there and donated 197 acres in trust to the Sierra Club. Eventually, the rest of the original property was sold and used to create the Sandestin Beach Resort.
