Attention boaters! Our very unique A-frame home with all the amenities is waiting for you! Private community boat ramp, private 90-foot dock, and outdoor entertaining spaces are just the beginning!

Entire private home directly on the Homosassa River with sweeping views of the river from almost every room in the house. Boat from the Springs to the Gulf of Mexico, and everywhere in-between. 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. 

Celebrate the sunset with a cocktail on the upper deck or lower dock (or experience the exact same view from inside if you’d prefer). Sip on your morning coffee while watching the boats and the birds, along with the occasional visiting manatee or dolphin.

This cute and quirky home features a master bedroom with a king-sized bed; a 45" smart TV; a large dresser for storage; two large nightstands with storage and large lamps; a large open closet with shelves and, a clothing rod, and hangers; a full-length mirror; a ceiling fan with light, two luggage racks, and a full water view. You can close the pocket door that’s between the master bedroom and bathroom to create a private master en-suite. On the side closest to the water, there are sliding glass doors and curtains you can close for privacy. If you exit the bedroom through the sliding glass door, you step down into the sunroom to a cozy sitting area with a queen futon and a coffee table that can rise to desk-height for eating, working, or playing games.

The master bathroom features a walk-in shower with a regular and/or hand-held shower head; a chair-height toilet;  double vanity sinks with cabinets and drawers; a wall-mounted lighted makeup mirror; and countertop two-sided mirror. Includes shampoo, conditioner, body wash, bar soap, toilet paper, hand soap, hair dryer, Q-tips, cotton pads, and cleaning supplies. Also includes bath towels, hand towels, washcloths, and makeup-remover washcloths.

The guest bedroom features two queen-sized beds; a 32" smart TV; a small console table with storage; two small nightstands with small lamps; a small closet with clothing rod and hangers; a full-length mirror; a ceiling fan with light; four luggage racks; and two windows with curtains that overlook the street/front yard/entrance to boat ramp.

The loft bedroom features a queen-sized bed; a 32" smart TV; two small nightstands with lamps; a ceiling fan with lights; two luggage racks; and a loft landing /sitting area. This bedroom is unique for sure! Please note access to the loft is via a circular staircase, so whomever is staying up there might consider packing in several small bags instead of a large suitcase.

The guest bathroom features a walk-in shower with regular shower head; a chair-height toilet; single vanity sink with cabinet and drawers; a mirrored medicine chest; and a wall-mounted lighted makeup mirror. Includes shampoo, conditioner, body wash, bar soap, toilet paper, hand soap, hair dryer, Q-tips, cotton pads, and cleaning supplies.

The half bathroom features a chair-height toilet and small single vanity sink with cabinet.  Includes toilet paper, hand soap, hair dryer, Q-tips, cotton pads, and cleaning supplies. Also includes hand towels.

The living room features a vaulted, A-frame ceiling; two large couches; a large chair with ottoman; a 65-inch cable TV; a coffee table;  two end tables; two lamps; and a rug. Directly off the living room, the sunken sunroom features a seating area for two set up with binoculars to view the boats and wildlife on the river. These chairs can be turned around to be included as part of the living room.

The kitchen, with its full water view, is fully-equipped and includes granite countertops; stainless steel refrigerator/freezer with filtered ice and water dispenser; stainless steel dishwasher; glass-top stove/oven; and built-in microwave. The island includes a large single sink with garbage disposal and spray nozzle; and four barstools. You’ll find almost everything you’ll need for cooking, baking, and grilling, as well as appliances such as a blender, popcorn popper, toaster, toaster oven, waffle iron, chopper, hand mixer, crock pot, rice cooker, and air fryer. We include all dinnerware, serveware, plates, bowls, cups, glasses, wine glasses, margarita glasses, martini glasses, cups, champagne flutes, plastic cups, paper plates, paper bowls, and paper products. We include spices, salt, pepper, olive oil, vinegar, and a mortar and pestle. We also include trash bags, dishwasher pods, sponges, dish soap, hand soap, dish towels, paper towels, and cleaning products.

The dining room features a full water view; a dining room table with seating for 6; and includes a shelf full of books, puzzles, board games, card games, and other games, including a poker set.

The sunken sunroom is fully waterfront. It begins on one end with the dining room, then the door to the outdoor deck, then a seating area for two, then the seating area with queen futon and coffee table.

The outdoor breezeway and dock area includes the stairs to the front door; seating; a small gas grill; fish cleaning station; water hose; standing ashtray; and dock.

Enjoy our dock! Bring your inflatable floats, pool noodles, and rafts and chill right out front, with an excellent view of all the action. Or if you’re up for some exploring, we offer two kayaks with paddles and life jackets. Or bring your own canoes, kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, john boats, jet skis, etc.

The upper deck includes a table and chairs for four; a set of two Adirondack chairs with table; and a standing ashtray.

The house itself features a full-house water filtration system, as well as a tankless water heater, which means no one runs out of hot water! It also features wi-fi.

Please note there is a loft, which is currently out of order, but will be available in the future.

There is also a full-size front-load washer and dryer set in the hallway. Includes laundry detergent pods.

Nearby attractions include the Ellie Schiller Wildlife State Park (a must-see in our book), which showcases our most famous residents – manatees. It includes a beautiful nature walk with a zoo-type area that includes wildlife that has been rehabilitated but cannot return to the wild. You’ll see eagles, owls, river otters, foxes, flamingos, deer, panthers, alligators, snakes, and believe it or not, a hippo, just to name a few. There are plenty of opportunities to go out on scalloping boats, fishing boats, sight-seeing boats, and “swim with the manatees” boats. You can also rent your own boat. We also have a local golf course, parks, tennis courts, basketball courts, a dog park, and even a pickleball facility. 

Our favorite theme park, Busch Gardens, is in Tampa, which is about an hour and fifteen minutes south. And of course all of the Orland theme parks are about an hour and forty-five minutes away (Disney World, Epcot, Animal Kingdom, Universal Studios Islands of Adventure, etc.). The Kennedy Space Center is about 3 and a half hours away, in Cocoa Beach.

While this is a mall town, there is still a variety of options for delicious dining and unique shopping.

This is truly “Old Florida,” and many of the places are family-owned small businesses. It’s so casual and laid back, you can go pretty much anywhere wearing a t-shirt, shorts, and flip flops. There’s no “night life” per se, so you would likely spend evenings having fun at home.

Please note this property is not wheelchair-accessible, is not child-proofed, and includes many stairs, steps, and uneven surfaces – not to mention the fact that it’s directly waterfront without a lifeguard or protective fencing. There are no bathtubs -- both showers are walk-in, although one has a handheld shower option. Also, please note that depending on the tides, the house and neighborhood can flood several inches. The house does not flood, but the dock, breezeway, driveway and sometimes the street can flood. This is the case with many properties in this area. Also, anything you put outside can and will blow away!

The area comes alive during summer and scallop season, and is fairly quiet the rest of the year. Depending on your preferences, there is a perfect time of year for you to visit. Reserve your time now and see for yourself!
