Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: We love the 'Nature Coast' and lived in Citrus County for 11 years before moving to be closer to children and grandchildren. We still come to Florida in the winter, staying not far from the condo, to enjoy all that this area has to offer.
Why the Owner Chose Homosassa: We lucked out finding this property and feel like we were meant to own it - which follows our belief that 'things happen for a reason'. We liked the openness of the great room, the wood and tile floors, the huge master suite and the guest room with its own bathroom. We also love this part of Florida and wanted others to enjoy it as well.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: We think the location of Sugarmill Woods is fantastic and its close proximity to so many things to see and do. We had looked at other condos in this same building, but liked the fact that this unit was on the top floor and an end unit - which means it's really quiet and relaxing. We loved the green space that you can see so well from the great room, master bedroom and the lanai. We are also quite flexible with rental time frames, so whether you need to rent just for one month, several months, or long-term, we'll work with you to help meet your needs.
