Homosassa house description

Old Homosassa is a quaint Florida Village on Florida's Nature Coast located 60 miles north of the Tampa Airport. The area is known for the spring fed Homosassa River, Halls River, and Mason Creek, which leads into Homosassa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. The area's waterways are home to a large diversity of wildlife including manatees, river otters, porpoise, and many species of birds, fish and shell fish native to the west coast of Florida.

Old Homosassa still retains the charm of a river village setting with riverfront restaurants, art galleries, fresh seafood shops, and of course a few old time honky tonks for evening entertainment. The annual Seafood Festivals draws talented artists and thousands of visitors.

The Creekside House at Mason Creek Estates is located in a quiet neighborhood across from Mason Creek on a large landscaped property loaded with native shade trees. A circle driveway leads to undercover parking.
