Smathers Four Fillies Farm is a private gated community composed of 32 single-family homes, a clubhouse and tennis courts located on the magnificent grounds in Pinecrest, Florida. This development has one of the world's most significant and valuable collections of mango trees and other exotic flora. As landscape architect's, ORDA took special care in the development of Four Fillies to safeguard the botanical integrity of the estate. Houses are clustered in a central area, only covering approximately one third of the grounds. The remaining acreage was preserved to be maintained by Fairchild Tropical Gardens, which continues to use the property as a research facility. The project was LEED certified for Homes by the USGBC.
