Citrus County, located on "Florida's Nature Coast", is located 70 miles north of Tampa and 60 miles northwest of Orlando, along Florida's west-central coast and the Gulf of Mexico. No State Income Tax or Inheritance Tax is levied by the State of Florida. Real Estate taxes average approximately 1.5% of the "assessed" value of your property, including the $25,000 Homestead exemption available to all primary residents.
Citrus County really has a three season climate-spring, fall, and a long summer. Sea breezes from the Gulf of Mexico and average 65% humidity minimize the summer warmth as compared to the lower sub-tropical parts of Florida. The comfortable 70.4% average temperature (60's in winter, 80's in summer) and average rainfall of 51.2 inches allow you to enjoy the serenity of a quiet rural uncrowded setting, the beauty of scenic hills and woodlands, and the charm of luxurious living all year-long.
The spring-fed waters of the Crystal and Homosassa rivers are ideal for swimming, diving and snorkeling year round. Citrus County's convinient location gives its populace easy access to all of Florida's exciting and enjoyable attractions. Clearwater Beach, Tampa/St.Peterburg, and Orland (Walt Disney World, Sea World, ect) are a little over an hour's drive away.
Citrus Springs, FL is a deed-restricted community. The deed restrictions are designed to maintain the beauty of the community and safeguard your investment. Citrus Springs has a fully developed infrastructure with some of the best real estate values to be found in Florida. It could be considered the most well designed master-
planned community in the State. Its winding streets meander through rolling hills, creating a private and tranquil environment for its homesites surrounded by vast expanses of natural beauty.
The primary reason for the County’s continuing population growth is the large number of new residents arriving not only from northern states, but from other areas in Florida such as Miami, Tampa, Fort Lauderdale, and St. Petersburg. Most of the new residents are middle-aged workers or retirees; however, the County continues to attract a younger population. These younger workers are concentrated in the service sector.
