Two unique Craftsman-designed homes are located across the river from downtown Austin on a beautiful wooded lot in one of Austin's most desirable neighborhoods, Travis Heights. Walk or bike to major parks, great restaurants in the SoCo District, or even downtown to the fun sixth street music district.
The houses were designed, built and decorated by the owner artists Wolf Sittler and Charlotte Bell. Check the website for links to their work.

About Charlotte Bell
Wolf Sittler and Charlotte Bell are both artists. Wolf, a furniture maker, has added details through out the houses. Spalted pecan kitchen cabinets and hand made wood furniture add charm and warmth. Charlotte's photographs grace the walls. The house has all the touches that artists provide plus a well stocked kitchen.
They also have a home in San Miguel de Allende listed on VRBO.
Charlotte Bell purchased this house in 1980
Why Charlotte Bell chose Austin
Austin is the most interesting and young city in Texas filled with outdoor activites and festivals. The restaurants, near the house, are extra ordinary. In 3 blocks you are on the hike and bike trail with miles of lovely paths.
What makes this house unique
You will be close to everything. The house is in a quiet wooded location but you are minutes from I35 which will take you to the lakes or to the airport. But most people do not travel further than a few minutes from the house since so much is available in the area near downtown.
There are bikes to use as well as a washer and dryer.
Guestbook comments from the owner
This one of the most wonderful places that I have ever stayed. The house is charming, super clean and located minutes from downtown and great restaruants. Plus it look like you are in the middle of the country from all the beautiful windows.
