Welcome to Citrus County Florida the land of seven rivers, a bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Located on Florida's Nature Coast there is an abundance of luxurious waterfront property in Citrus County.
There are thousands of undeveloped acres available, whether it's a spacious piece of land ready to build on, or a beautiful home or condo overlooking the pristine waterways found here in Citrus County.
This is your chance to own a piece of Florida's waterfront paradise.
Citrus County also has over a dozen natural springs. The waters surrounding the area are a constant 72 degrees year round thanks to the millions of gallons of fresh water that is pumped out of the Florida aquifer.
The temperate waters become a haven for the warm blooded manatees during the cool winter months.
People come from all across the world to observe and interact with these gentle giants. Local dive shops offer manatee boat tours as well as snorkeling and swimming with the manatees.
For waterfront property the west side of Citrus County consists of (from south to north) the Chassahowitzka River, the Homosassa River, the Crystal River, and the Withlacoochee River.
All flow into the Gulf of Mexico and there is King's Bay between Crystal River and the Gulf. There are also many man made canals around the natural springs. King's Bay Drive is a particularly stunning waterfront community.
The east side of Citrus County consists largely of lake front property. There are many waterfront property communities on this side of Citrus County such as Gospel Island and Pritchard Island.
