Das ist von mir zu Hause etwa vier Blocks entfernt.

Is this the most common way that native German speakers would communicate something is four blocks away? Or are there any other words people use too?

With german cities being rarely ever built in a way that makes it possible to refer to ‘blocks’ this wouldn’t be common but if your area allowed for this to be said it would be ok. Usually, we’d say ‘4 Straßen weiter’ (which is in and of itself is so ridiculously imprecise that I don’t even know why)
