About the Property

House, 2 BR + Den, 2.5 Baths, access to golf, tennis and spa for a healthy stay.

Enjoy the Privacy and Luxury of a Nature Coast Pool Home with access to Bella Vita Fitness and Spa Center! Everyone that stays here loves the privacy of the wooded lot, the convenience to the lakes and gulf coast, and variety of places to see and things to do on Florida's best kept secret - the Nature Coast.

Spend a month in this gorgeous year-round Florida Villa with 2 bedrooms and 2 1/2 bathrooms. This clean, spacious, fully equipped home is approximately 2000 total sq. ft. and perfect for up to four adult vacationers. The in-ground kidney-shaped pool, totally screened, is a highlight of this property. It is private and peaceful and benefits from the sun mid morning until early evening sunsets. Spend an evening enjoying cool nights outside by the pool with beautiful lighting accenting this private paradise.

Dine al fresco with meals under the protection of the lanai, and the bonus of a beautiful new stainless steel grill or come in out of the sun and take advantage of a fully applianced eat-in kitchen which also includes a breakfast bar. The fully stocked kitchen makes for a great central location for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You’ll find yourself planning your days while listening to music, preparing your next meal, or enjoying lively conversation.

The Master suite has a queen sized bed and a large dresser with mirror. Double glass sliding doors open to reveal the close proximity and convenience of the pool and patio right outside your door. The Master bathroom features a large soaking tub, oversized shower, double sink, large vanity, ½ bath, and spacious walk-in closet.

The second bedroom features a double bed framed in an antique style, wrought-iron headboard. There is a tall chest and a large closet for your belongings. The den offers HD flat screen TV with a Blue Ray DVD player. There is also a desk and a large closet. There are also plenty of board games, DVD’s and books for guests to spend some quality time together.

The formal living room has newly installed bamboo floors and new sleek leather furnishings. It is the perfect place to relax and read a book with double glass sliding doors overlooking the pool. This house is filled with luxury around every corner, and everything you could need is right at your fingertips.

Additional amenities include cable television, washer, dryer, a two-car garage, automatic garage door opener, portable stereo with CD player and an IPod docking station. Central AC and ceiling fans in each bedroom help keep things cool at night and are a great way to cool down after a day in the sun.

Step outside and enjoy……

This vacation home is perfectly situated in the middle of a private gated Golf Course community known as Citrus Hills Village, and has everything for your comfort and enjoyment. With temperatures averaging 72 degrees year round, Citrus County is one of the best locations in the state of Florida. Cool breezes off the Gulf of Mexico in summer feel heavenly and warmer temperatures in the winter extend the enjoyment through all four seasons.

The community offers 9 challenging public golf courses, tennis courts, indoor and outdoor dinning as well as some terrific shopping. A quick 25 minute drive to the beach will lead you to Fort Island State Park.

Enjoy the benefits of exclusive membership at the Bella Vita Fitness & Spa Center, free golf on the Meadows 18 hole championship course, and free tennis at Citrus Hills Golf & Country Club courts (for guest staying a minimum of 30 days).

The home is located between the Towns of Inverness & Hernando, off the Gulf to Lake Highway, just minutes from restaurants, shopping centers, local activities & attractions. Tampa and Orlando airports are located approximately 1 to 1-1/2 hours south.

The property is located less then 10 miles from Crystal River and Homosassa attractions. You can have a fun time taking riverboat tours, swimming with manatees, scuba diving, or even fishing in the salt water. A day trip to Orlando (Disney World) or Tampa (Bush Gardens) is just an hour away. Spend the day exploring amusement parks.

As part of Florida’s nature coast the City of Inverness lies comfortably between the tranquil waters of the chain of seven lakes leading to the Gulf of Mexico, known as the Tsala Apopka (considered one of the richest bass fisheries in the world), and continues to the moss filled oak trees of the Inverness highlands. Its historic downtown square with an array of fine shops, restaurants, the Crown Hotel and Citrus County's turn-of-the-century Courthouse (appeared in film scenes from 'Follow That Dream' starring Elvis Presley), bathe Inverness in the ambiance of times past.

Inverness is geographically located in the center of the State of Florida and it bears a notable resemblance to its sister city - Inverness, Scotland. Approximately, a hour's drive to Tampa's Busch Gardens to the south, Orlando's Disney World/Epcot complex to the southeast, the charming old fishing village of Cedar Key to the northwest and Gainesville's FSU Gator football games to the north.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: New Hampshire resident who enjoys the New England summers and Florida winters built this private and quiet retreat to have a place to 'escape' to. The owner of a management consulting business, he loves the 'laid back' environment and natural beauty of Florida's nature coast. Unlike the highly developed areas of Florida, he finds the nature coast is a place to relax, unwind and enjoy the unspoiled natural beauty of the gulf coast. The owner designed his 'villa' to capture the clean, calm and private feeling of the nature coast. He wanted to recreate a sense of beauty and creativity - where one can enjoy the peaceful environment - where one can enjoy writing, painting, or composing as well as enjoying one of the best preserved natural splendors in Florida.

Why the Owner Chose Cambridge Greens, Inverness, FL, USA:
As someone who constantly travels for business, I was looking for the perfect place, which combined natural beauty and privacy, to relax and unwind after a business trip. Having spent many vacations throughout the state - this location won me over - it had everything I was looking for and more. Sitting at the top of a hill it offers mild winters and comfortable summers - with a consistent and pleasant breeze.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This is a very private, hilltop location with all of the benefits of nature-coast living nearby. The central gulf coast location gives you access to the 'college town' atmosphere of Gainesville, the big city attractions of Tampa, the recreational diversity of Orlando - and the small 'old Florida' charm of Crystal River and Cedar Keys. With three airports easily accessible it is a convenient spot to get to. The ability to enjoy the sunshine in a private location allows you to enjoy an uninhibited environment. Set apart from neighboring properties allows you the privacy and comfort of individual tastes.
