                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2003

                          About the owner: Owners are lifetime Florida residents, University of Florida Gators with two U of FL student daughters. Since 2003 this has been a weekend home. Currently wish to sell for $275,000 so we can locate closer to children and grandchildren.

                          Why the Owner Chose Crystal River:
                          You can book this private home for the price of a condo! Memories are made here! This is a fun and peaceful place for a couple or a family. Canal on one side with river view, and wildlife preserve on the other side. Perfect location for scalloping,... + fishing, kayaking, swimming near manatees, and water activities.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Drink your coffee viewing morning sunrise from the porch. Sun is behind the house in late afternoon. Large covered grilling area downstairs is great for hanging out near the waterfront! Owner loves to help guests enjoy their stay!
