Property description

Great Location, in Katama section of Edgartown, within walking distance to South Beach, yet 1/2 mile walk to downtown Edgartown's shops, harbor, Captain's houses, restaurants, and cinema. Clean, comfortable house with two bedrooms (one queen bed and one with twin trundle beds), and lots of updated furnishings (inc. new hardwood floors, couch, area rugs, etc.). Central air conditioning, WiFi, deck with gas grille. Recent bike path runs in front of property. Left to village center, right to the beach.

Truly the best location, and on the new bike path: At the new bike path in front of the property, turn left to the village center, turn right to the beach.

Walk 1/2 mile to in-town and dine on Main St., on Edgartown harbor, or at one of many inns. Other favorites -- walk down Herring Creek to Katama Airport and breakfast on their outside deck while planes land overhead at one of the Nation's oldest grass airfields. Bring a picnic to the beach or one of the many natural reserves on Island.

Cycle to nearby bike path and venture to the beach, to downtown, along Beach Road to Oak Bluffs, around the State Forest, or, for the more serious cyclist - all the way to the cliffs at the other end of the Island.

Don't worry about parking a car in busy downtown Edgartown. A ten minute walk to Main Street brings you to a movie, dinner, or an ice cream. And if you bring or rent a kayak or canoe, you are close to Edgartown's Great Pond and the harbor.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: I used to live at this location yearround. It was great for its convenience to downtown, to the beach, to the bike path, yet feeling of removed and less-dense development. Now, I live elsewhere, but still love the location. The house sits back off the road and its locale lets me leave my car off Island; I can use my bike, or the bus that runs in front, or take an easy walk past the llamas, on bike path, near the harbor to downtown.

Why the Owner Chose Katama, Edgartown, MA, USA:
Best of both worlds. Excellent access to downtown, to South Beach and the many tracts of open space, farms, and Great Ponds. Any direction you walk, run, or bike you pass along beautiful areas.
