Recently, my husband and I began to visit model homes with the intention of building our new home in Hernando County within the next few years. When we came upon Bozzi Builders, we immediately felt comfortable with the Bozzi family and their staff at the model center. It was then that we knew we wanted to do business with Bozzi Builders.
What started out as a business relationship, has flourished into a close, personal friendship with the Bozzi family. They have continuously been generous with their time, and have displayed nothing less than the utmost professionalism, while building our home.

A home in Citrus County Florida is like no other place in Florida, conveniently located between the cities of Tampa, Orlando and Gainesville.
Citrus County is situated on the Gulf Coast of Florida on what is called the "Nature Coast". The area is unique in that more than 40 % of the land has been set aside for public use and recreation. Citrus County has become known as a “Nature's Theme Park”. A playground for water sports such as fishing, scalloping, boating, swimming, canoeing, kayaking, snorkeling, scuba diving, or just relaxing and tubing down the River.
Adjacent to the Gulf of Mexico, is Kings Bay as well as seven rivers that criss cross Citrus County including the Crystal River, the Homosassa River, the Withlacoochee River, the Rainbow River and the Chassahowitzka River. Both saltwater fishing and fresh water fishing are excellent in Citrus County.
Some of the best bass fishing in the state of Florida can be found here in Lake Rousseau and the Tsala Apopka Lake chain in Inverness, which also hosts an annual speedboat race. For saltwater fishing the Gulf of Mexico offers an endless supply of opportunity and enjoyment. The world record tarpon was actually caught just off the coast of Homosassa.
One of the attractions in Citrus County is the City of Crystal River, a quaint, coastal fishing town with a unique resident, the Florida Manatee. Actually known as the West Indian Manatee, these gentle giants of the sea make the Crystal River and the Homosassa River as well as Kings Bay their home in the cooler winter months.
Drawn to the year round, warm spring fed waters, these ancient mammals attract people from all over the world to experience their natural wonder. Local dive shops surround the area offering boat rentals, snorkel and scuba rentals and manatee tours that actually include a swim with the manatees.
The City of Inverness Florida, sister city to Inverness Scotland lies on the east side of Citrus County and is the county seat. As the center of government for Citrus County, Inverness Florida offers many historical landmarks including the "Old Courthouse Museum" built in 1912.
Newly completed renovations allow you to travel back in time to when times were slower and simpler. The historic downtown square has been renovated and is a great place to spend time visiting the variety of shops and restaurants or just sitting on a bench under a moss draped oak tree.
Citrus County also offers over 20 world-class golf courses to choose from. In fact, five of these Citrus County golf courses were ranked in the top 100 in the U.S. by Golf Digest Magazine.
These five top ranked courses include Southern Woods Golf and Country Club in Sugarmill Woods, Black Diamond Ranch in Lecanto, two courses located at World Woods (Rolling Oaks and Pine Barrons), and El Diablo in Citrus Springs.
There are many wonderful and varied residential communities within Citrus County, something to please everyone.
From the exclusive waterfront communities of Homosassa and Crystal River with its Kings Bay Drive, to the spacious equestrian country lots of Pine Ridge Estates in Beverly Hills and the pristine country club communities of Sugarmill Woods & Citrus Hills Florida including the privately gated Terra Vista of Citrus Hills.
