Northwest / Millhopper

Scenic Gainesville Living

Living in the Millhopper area is to relax amid the inland oak hammocks and hardwood cypress swamps iconic to old-Florida, while enjoying the present-day conveniences and opportunities offered by a diverse cultural and economic hub.  Removed from the bustle of the city, residents of the Millhopper area can come home to shady, oak-lined roadways and peaceful country living in a nature preserve setting.

Located in northwest Gainesville, the North Central Florida climate provides excellent weather year-round and the area’s namesake Devil’s Millhopper State Park, a “bowl-shaped cavity 120 feet deep that leads down to a miniature rain forest”, provides hikers and runners with a unique glimpse into to Florida’s natural beauty. The nearby Thornebrook Shopping Center offers boutique shops, curios, gourmet sweets, a fitness center, and a Fresh Market. The Shands Health Park is only a short commute away, as are The University of Florida’s educational, cultural, and professional opportunities, and Gainesville’s central location within the state means that Florida’s beaches, theme parks, and big-city nightlife are just a day-trip away.

Homes in this area range from sizeable estates on lake-front property, to modest homes on wooded lots, and luxury apartments adjacent to area shopping centers. Whether you prefer an expansive two-story estate nestled in the oak hammocks, a relaxing ranch-style home on some land, or a convenient luxury condo, Team Dynamo can find the perfect home for you in the Millhopper area.
