Citrus County

Citrus County Florida is located on the Gulf Coast of Florida, north of Hernando County and just south of Ocala Florida. Citrus County is ideally situated only a little over an hour from Orlando, Tampa and Gainesville.

A home in Citrus County Florida offers a relaxed approach back to nature. The area is full of parks, wildlife preserves, bird sanctuaries, and protected coastal wetlands. However, you can also enjoy an active Florida lifestyle in Citrus County as well.

Citrus County alone boasts over 20 area golf courses, there are miles of hiking, biking and horseback riding trails, not to mention the fishing and boating in Crystal River, Homosassa River, Kings Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.

Crystal River and Homosassa as well as Homosassa Springs Florida are world famous for the native manatee populations.

Crystal River manatees and Homosassa Springs manatees are very popular among residents and visitors alike. Crystal River and Homosassa are some of the only places in the world where you can swim with the manatees.

These graceful, giant mammals, some as large as a small automobile, are attracted to the mild, spring fed waters of the Crystal River and the Homosassa River which flow into the Kings Bay and then on to the Gulf of Mexico. Dive shops and boat rentals offer manatee tours and manatee snorkel tours year round.

In Homosassa Springs you will discover the Homosassa Springs State Wildlife Park, a zoo-like environment of native Florida birds, snakes, fish and mammals. You can expect to see the Florida black bear, Florida panther, fox, otters, owls, eagles, flamingos, alligators, snook, tarpon, and yes manatees. The park contains a “fishbowl”, a glass structure to which you descend down stairs into a dry under sea environment where the fish and manatee swim around you.

On the east side of Citrus County you will find Inverness Florida, a rich historical city with a turn of the century “old courthouse” museum, down town square and quaint shops. Inverness is the county seat and as such a hub of local political and business activities.

Inverness is also the host of many local annual festivals including, the Cooter Fest, Fourth of July fireworks parade, and many arts and crafts fairs. Homes in Inverness Florida offer a step back to mossy, tree-lined sidwalks and children playing in the sprinklers on a bright sunny day.

Sugarmill Woods is a unique community offering “green belt” lots, where each Sugarmill Woods home backs up to a piece of the original, natural forest instead of someone else's property.

This natural vegetation winds its way throughout the community, making for a lush and serene environment. With three golf courses, Sugarmill Woods Golf and Country Club is always an active meeting place for friends and neighbors.

The communities of Citrus Hills offers even more country club living. Three golf courses at the Villages of Citrus Hills including the prestigious Skyview Golf Course in Terra Vista are also bustling with active seniors and young people alike.

The new Terra Vista gated community is very exclusive, with an impressive club house, tennis courts, olympic size pool, world-renowned spa and fitness center, restaurants, and the highest elevation golf course in central Florida at 250 feet above sea level.

Pine Ridge Estates located in Beverly Hills Florida is right in the middle of Citrus County and offers an equestrian flare. Pine Ridge is characterized by 28 miles of horseback riding trails that weave through the community connecting some of the homes.

It is not uncommon for neighbors to come visiting on horse back. The community consists of large estate homes on 1 acre or larger lots with pristine landscaping and some with magnificent stone wall entries.

The elite community of Black Diamond is best known for its famous Black Diamond Ranch golf course that is centered around an abandoned limestone quarry.

The quarry, has been reclaimed by nature and the lake filled bottom is surrounded with lush vegetation growing up the one hundred foot high, sheer cliff walls. The Black Diamond golf course actually plays right through into the quarry itself, with spectacular views and challenging vertical play. A home in Black Diamond is an exclusive entry into a world of luxury living at its finest.
