Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: I am a real estate broker in Citrus County and love my job. There is always someone new to meet. We moved here from Miami in 1997 to get away from the fast paced way of life and crime. Citrus County is like a breath of fresh air. Come experience why we chose Floral City. You will love it.

Why the Owner Chose Floral City:
This is our guest cottage on our farm where we raise Red Angus Cattle. We are part of the growing Agri-Tourism trend of city dwellers wanting to refresh their systems and experience nature at its best. Our personal guests all love to come here and stay so we decided to share it with others when it is not in use by family and friends.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
There is a sense of peace and serenity here yet we are so close to everything. Come find out for yoursel why we love it here.
