Katama comes from a Wampanoag word meaning "crab-fishing place". For thousands of years this area was home to Native Americans because of the bounty of shellfish, fish and deer, the incredible pastoral setting and water views. Unchanged, it holds the same appeal to those who come to the Island today to experience the same tranquility and captivating magic of Katama Bay. The number of homes on the Bay are geographically limited and therefore very desirable. It is rare that a property comes on the market. KATAMA HOLLOW is that rare opportunity. Located on a very private 2.1 acre parcel of land with 200 feet of frontage directly on Katama Bay, the property is further enhanced by a lovely pond on the north side offering a matchless water vista. A private dock and well balanced landscaping with perennial gardens complete the Stobart setting. The unique design of the main house with it's circular windows allow you to always be part of the water vistas. Three bedrooms and baths, a living room with fireplace are in the main house. The spacious 710 sf guest house has another bedroom and two baths. It abuts the pond with views beyond to the Bay. Upon approaching the property and the circular drive, the view before you tells you that you have arrived at a very special location. Words can describe, however in this instance please refer to the photos to get the full impact of these almost indescribable views.

desc2ndDwellingThe pleasant 1 bedroom, 2 bath guest house complete with kitchen and sitting room are a unique element to this Katama property. Because it is a pre-existing structure, it can remain. Present zoning would not allow a guest house. Located directly next to the tranquil pond, the guest house enjoys a fabulous view up Katama Bay toward Edgartown from the many multi-level decks and over the private outdoor green spaces. An additional finished, lower level space can be adapted to a library, yoga room or anything else that fits into your lifestyle.
descFloor1The unique architecture of the main house is beautifully balanced with the well designed landscaping which has been designed and maintained by one of the family members. Upon entering the house the views expand before you going up and down Katama Bay. The galley kitchen is located to the left of the inviting foyer. To the right is a small den/study offering space to get some work done if necessary and not get distracted by the fabulous views. Directly in front on the water side is the living room with fireplace in front of the kitchen and the dining room to the right. Ceiling to floor windows in both these rooms frame the gardens, the dock and waterviews. An en suite master bedroom is located in the left wing of the house along with another charming en suite bedroom with fireplace. A third bedroom and bath are located in the right wing.
