The year is 1539 the month is June when a man born in Extremadura, Spain leaves his boot prints along the Cove of The Withlacoochee. Hernando de Soto leading six hundred Spaniards treads through where now lie myriad waterfront homes on the banks of the Tsala Apopka Chain of Lakes and the Withlacoochee River.
On the east side of Citrus County, Florida, there is a bend in the Withlacoochee River, historically known as the Cove of the Withlacoochee. Within this bend nestles the Tsala Apopka Chain of Lakes. The aesthetics of the area have changed little since de Soto came through the area in his search for gold. The great moss draped oaks and cypresses still cast their peaceful reflections on the teeming waters of these lakes and river. The ospreys still plunge their talons in these waters to secure a meal. The only thing that has really changed is that many residents of and visitors to Citrus County now enjoy the beauty, serenity and the numerous other pleasures this area has to offer.
Imagine sitting on your back porch enjoying a cool drink while gazing out at the tranquil water. Suddenly there is a splash in a cluster of lily pads and you see a leopard frog leap a foot in the air as the mossy back of a lunker bass breaks the surface. If you are an angler, your blood races and you reach for the rod you keep on hand. If you are not a member of the fishing clan you still thrill at having witnessed this primeval struggle for sustenance and survival.
All of the waterfront homes and waterfront lots available along the twenty two mile long Tsala Apopka Chain of Lakes and the thirty some miles of the Withlacoochee River afford their owners the serenity of living by these lazy waters and the opportunity to enjoy numerous watersports.
Due to the size of Tsala Apopka Chain of Lakes and Withlacoochee River there are always homes and building sites for sale.
