Why Melissa Swanstrom chose Homosassa

I was attracted to this home even before it was put on the market. When I bought it, it was in really bad condition. I gutted the whole inside and everything in it is brand new. Very comfortable and spacious home.

What makes this house unique

It was originally built as a church in 1945 and sometime in the 1980's the church sold it and it was turned into a home.

Fantastic unique home

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful, clean, and had the best stocked kitchen I ever saw. The beds were very comfortable. The neighborhood was nice and quiet.

The home used to be a church. The layout is unique and spacious. The only complaint I had (a minor one) is the instructions to work the TV need to be updated.

Melissa was great to work with. I would definitely stay at the church house again.

We had a great time!

  • 4 of 5

Well maintained home with lots of room. Home was well equipped with everything you need. Large charcoal grill onsite. Only issue was parking as the owner wants to keep her yard looking nice however, to cut down on confusion, would suggest roping off the areas where they do not want people to park in the spare lot next to the home.

You Won't Be Disappointed

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to stay at the Church House for the month of January. We had never been to Homosassa, much less heard of it . . . We were enamored with the Old Florida feel of the area which also contains a lot of history. This property is located in the central part of Old Homosassa and was within walking distance (for us) to many of the local restaurants & pubs, and, of course the Homosassa River & Monkey Island. The house is emmaculate and newly renovated throughout. The the main gathering area of the house is perfect for entertaining & boasts a wonderful kitchen with granite countertops. The newly added screened in patio was especially nice (which is in addition to the enclosed lanai). The master bedroom California king sized bed was so comfy. This is probably the best property in Old Homosassa, and I can find nothing to complain about. It was well-stocked with linens, kitchen utensils, cleaning supplies, washer-dryer. In fact, the weather got quite cold during our visit and the heating system worked great. My only wish would be that there was some sort of recycling program available within the town. I would highly recommend the Church House --- you will not be disappointed.
