Take advantage of the nearly endless growing season in Levy County, North Central Florida. We have all 4 seasons with a mild winter. There is a greenhouse for the infrequent freezes. Home includes dug-in, bricked shelter with storage capacity to cover any emergency be it weather or security-related. This is one of the few affordable residences that offers these options for those who don't have millions to put down. There is abundant local fishing in the rivers and lakes, the gulf is 40 miles away and Atlantic is only 1.5 hours away.
