Homosassa house description

This new home located in pristine Old Homosassa will provide the ultimate vacation for you and your guests. A fanciful 3 bedroom 2 bath 'tree house' of sorts provides ample vistas for viewing the birds and sanctuary like surroundings. Many bird species can be seen from the home and local area including Great Blue Heron, Bald Eagles and Wood Storks! An elevated walkway leads from the home to the large dock on the saltwater river. Just minutes from great inshore fishing, or cast away right from the dock ~ pull in fresh blue crabs! Crabbing, fishing, scalloping, snorkeling, antiquing, exploring wildlife or artists all the fun is just moments away. But come home and you are secluded. Peace and quiet surround you, no traffic ~ reminiscent of time gone by. Fully appointed with designer furnishings ~ Everything is ready for your arrival!
You can bring your kayak or boat and enjoy all of the local water activities. There are many local artists with storefronts to find unique creations. Call now to reserve your time in Old Homosassa!!

                      Year Purchased: 2009

                      About: We fell in love with Old Homosassa because it feels like Florida ~ Relaxed, beautiful waterfront community with live oaks and Spanish moss. A great variety of birds can be found along with the largest population of manatees. There is plenty to do here; but sitting on the porch visiting with family and friends while shelling scallops or cleaning the redfish you just caught is my favorite pastime. The people here know how to live and enjoy the best of life! Come check it out and start making your memories today!!

                      Why Homosassa:
                      I built this home after acquiring the unique lot. There are very few properties like this with waterfront docks and pristine conservation lands. This allowed a home to be built on stilts with a tree house like effect and great views. The conservation land in concordance with the EPA remains tidal and the way nature intended it to be.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Perfectly located with plenty of activities, restaurants and shopping within a 10 mile radius, this home is private yet accessible. Launch your boat, keep it at the dock, travel by boat to local hot spots for fishing or for socializing! You can have it all here. There are springs located 15 minutes by boat where you can snorkel and swim with the manatees and other critters! The water is cool and crystal clear. During scallop season enjoy gathering the tasty morsels and feasting afterwards. We have crab traps set out near the dock and enjoy the tasty blue crabs by the dozen! Redfish and trout are commonly sought after by inshore fishermen and women alike. Grouper, tarpon and other species may also be found nearby seasonally.
