Property description

Our home is in the woodland green belt of Sugarmill Woods which is an unspoilt tranquil Florida paradise located close to the Gulf Coast near the small town of Homosassa Springs. The villa, which is some 2,300 sq ft, has plenty of room to accommodate guests. The property is set in woodland and does not have any direct neighbors as the adjacent lots are both vacant. There is also woodland to the rear of the villa which is south facing and maximizes the amount of sun during the day on the fully screened 28’x15’ solar heated pool and surrounding decking. A large covered lanai ensures ample shade is also available at all times. The villa is located in a quiet area.

The master bedroom has a queen-size bed and there is a large en-suite bathroom with a Jacuzzi jetted bath tub, walk-in shower and a double vanity unit; there is also a walk-in closet. There are two other bedrooms, each with twin beds and ample closet space, and they share a 2nd bathroom which has a bath/overhead shower, toilet and vanity unit.

The large Florida room has HBO cable HDTV, a three seat sofa, a two seat love sofa and two single armchairs. The study/den has a queen-size sofa bed, WiFi internet, a table with desk lamp, and an entertainment unit; all bedrooms and the study/den have cable TVs. The kitchen is fully fitted and equipped and there is an adjoining breakfast area with table and chairs for 6. There is a separate dining area, also with a table and 6 chairs, for more formal eating. The utility room has a washer, dryer and a large sink. All linen and towels (including beach towels) are provided.

The Florida room, master bedroom and breakfast area have sliding patio doors to access the lanai. The lanai has ample pool furniture, including a large table for outside dining, and there are two ceiling fans and a separate washroom. A gas barbecue/grill is also provided.

There are numerous quality golf courses within a short driving distance. The attractions in Orlando are some 2 hours away and Tampa can be reached in an hour. There are wildlife parks and nature reserves within a short drive and the local beach at Fort Island, which is 30 minutes away, has barbecue/grill facilities and a fishing pier. Picnic cooler bags and a beach umbrella are provided for days out. An extensive range of information is provided about the surrounding area and areas wider afield.

The minimum rental period is two weeks and is due to the local homeowners association's deed restrictions. Shorter rental periods cannot be accepted. Seasonal rental inquiries (Jan - Mar) will be directed to our local agent.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

Why the Owner Chose Homosassa:
We looked at numerous areas in Florida and were immediately attracted to Sugarmill Woods as it is spacious, quiet and well laid out with its meandering roads, unlike any other area we had visited. Due to its woodland setting we felt we would be able to relax and fully unwind which has been the case. We chose the property because it had no immediate neighbors. The rear garden is south facing.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
We have tried to furnish the property so it feels like home from home, a view expressed by long term renters. We find it easy to relax by the pool or, when very hot, under the covered lanai with its ceiling fans.
