Welcome to the “Birdhouse”

The “Birdhouse” sits on 5 acres¬†situated at the mouth of Rocky Creek in Port Richey with breathtaking views of “old Florida’s” vanishing coastal flora and fauna and the Gulf of Mexico. Cross a small private causeway, close the gate behind you, and enter a totally secluded and pristine sanctuary. This one of a kind home was hand built by a master carpenter and a stained glass artist with great care and attention to detail and features 180 degrees of stunning views, breathtaking sunsets and world class birding from the wrap around balcony. Because of the strict protection of estuary environments, the view in front of the home will never change. The 65 pristine adjacent acres to the North were approved for purchase as a preserve by Pasco County in Sept 2015. The property has forested uplands, wetlands, saltwater marshes and mangroves, and is identified by the website mybirdmaps.com as “a top location for bird-watching in the state of Florida.”

Enjoy canoeing, kayaking, fishing and boating in your front yard and communion with nature just a few minutes from restaurants and shopping.

The home itself is a cross between Florida Cracker and Craftsman style. Like Craftsman style, the home has clean lines, natural beauty, elaborate construction details and a high degree of craftsmanship. And like Craftsman style, it is also built to last.
