Property description

The 2016 Scallop Season is right around the corner starting July 1st through September 25th. Book now! Come stay in this 2007 split plan home on stilts right on mason creek in olde homosassa hideaway waterfront. The 2nd level is approximately 1600 square feet with 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The 2nd level is only accessible by stairs in the front and in the back of the property. There is 70' of private dock in the backyard. Minutes to the gulf of Mexico and the main homosassa river by boat. Great place to go kayaking, canoeing, boating, bicycling or just sitting on deck watching the boats go by or an awesome sunset over the marsh. You might even see a river otter or a dolphin right out the back door. Minutes to one of the best wild life state parks in Florida. There is a bird observatory within walking distance from this location. In the winter, you can swim with the manatees in the springs, and snorkel for scallops in the summer. Two blocks from free public boat ramp. Plenty of boat trailer parking at the house. This home has two sets of sliding glass doors onto the back deck. Lots of windows and natural light inside. Covered parking available.

It's like living in a tree house on the water! Best of both worlds!

Please send inquiry for availability and rates. Office on premises.

Thank you.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I am originally from the St. Petersburg/Gulfport area. I have been coming to Homosassa for years. My parents build a house here many years ago. I bought this lot in 2004, finally building this home in 2007 just two blocks from my parents. I have been here full time since 2007 and just love it! My mother has since past away, but she lives on everyday in that she brought me to this place and made it all happen.

Why the Owner Chose Old Homosassa, Homosassa, FL, USA:
It's like entering another world when you pull into the driveway after driving in 5 miles of scenic road with no traffic lights. You don't hear any sirens or screeching tires. Sometimes when the wind is blowing just right, you can hear the drowning sound of the diesel engine from the shrimp boats coming back into the river from working all night catching your next lunch at the Freezer! On a clear night and because there are no city or street lights, you can see a bazillion stars at night.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I could go on, but I think you get the picture. Thank you for reading!
