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 Terrace House is centrally located in the village of Old Homosassa; a leisurely 10 minute walk on the bike path to the village waterfront activities; McRay's Tiki Bar and launch ramp; art galleries and other waterfront eateries. The one and half story house is located on a large landscaped lot with a private fenced in back yard. This completely furnished home has original red cedar and pine floors ;custom red cedar bar separating the open kitchen/dining room floor plan from the living room; French doors leading into the inlaid tiled den; leather furniture; custom artwork; and a back deck with grill and fire pit.

The tiled kitchen - dining area is fully equipped with modern appliances; and includes all necessities in a large kitchen. The master bedroom has a full bath (shower) with marble inlaid tile, a queen size bed. The guest bedroom includes a queen size bed. The quest full bath has marble floors with tub/shower. The third bedroom with a full size bed is located upstairs and accessed only by a private outside entrance. A blow up mattress is provided for extra sleeping in the den. All lines and towels are provided

Activities in the area include excellent fishing, scalloping, swimming, biking, boating, kayaking, canoeing, bird watching and just enjoying the local rivers.
