Habitat for Humanity of Citrus County, Inc., is pleased to share our story about Southern Pines Village in Inverness, Florida located in Citrus County. The team at Habitat envisioned a deed restricted Habitat village in our county to bring people together in a neighborhood setting. Historically, Habitat for Humanity's construction lots have been scattered throughout the county, mainly as a result of donor gifts. Southern Pines is the first time that the Citrus County affiliate has had the opportunity to create its own deed restricted village in Citrus County Florida.
Southern Pines Village is a 33 single family community for qualified families earning under 80% Area Medium Income. Today 24 families reside in Southern Pines Village in Inverness Florida and the remaining 9 will take residence in early 2019. The homes are on quarter-acre lots and include paved streets and city water.
The development is located on S. Apopka Avenue and is only a few blocks from Downtown Inverness. This subdivision is close to shopping, dining and many healthcare facilities along Highland Boulevard, including Citrus Memorial Hospital.
