One of the best kept secrets of West Central Florida is Citrus County waterfront property on the West Coast of Florida. Compared to other more developed coastal areas of Florida, Citrus County still offers relatively affordable waterfront homes and waterfront lots.
Citrus County Florida is for people who love to be in or near the water. The west coast of Citrus County lies on the Gulf of Mexico and the east side of Citrus County is characterized by the many lakes that make up the Tsala Apopka lake chain. This area of Citrus County including the county seat of Inverness is great for bass fishing. Additionally, the rest of the county is criss crossed with seven rivers, including the Crystal River, Homosassa River, Chassahowitzka River, Withlacoochee River and Rainbow River.
As you can imagine, boating and fishing are a way of life for this active outdoor community. Nature surrounds you and every aspect of your life in Citrus County. In fact, approximately 40% of the land in Citrus County is set aside for public use and can not be developed. This alone sets Citrus County apart from other coastal regions of Florida.
Protected wetlands, state forests, nature preserves, wildlife refuges, and many local parks make life and recreation in Citrus County that much more enjoyable.
Some of the waterfront communities in Citrus County includes Kings Bay Drive, an exclusive waterfront neighborhood of spectacular waterfront homes in Crystal River Florida.
Another unique waterfront neighborhood is Ozello Trail. A long winding road through the marshes and wetlands of coastal Citrus County, Ozello is home to many coastal aquatic birds. Ozello is characterized by many colorful stilt homes built right up to the water's edge, offering some of the most breathtaking sunsets views in Florida.
Homosassa Florida offers a similar landscape to that that of Ozello, only less remote. The residents of waterfront homes in Homosassa and Homosassa Springs Florida enjoy such amenities as numerous marinas, dive and snorkel shops, boat rentals and restaurants with the freshest seafood around.
On the east side of Citrus County lake front property and lake side homes in Inverness Florida are second to none. Waterfront communities such as Pritchard Island and Gospel Island offer exclusive waterfront living in Inverness just minutes away from the Inverness Downtown Square.
