Property description

Three 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.
These non-smoking homes have sunny rooms, well appointed kitchens, hardwood floors, patios and lots of windows looking out onto the backyard forest greenbelt. Each house has one bedroom. The beds are comfortable with 100% cotton sheets. Kitchens have all amenities including coffee and basics. Our newest accomidation is the Tree-cycle which is a tiny house. Look at the photos and then contact us for more information.

They have the feel of the country but are within minutes of the city center and 15 minutes to the Austin Bergstrom airport.
Located on Kenwood Ave: a few blocks south of Riverside Dr. between Congress Ave. and I 35

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1980

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose South Congress, Austin, TX, USA:
Austin is the most interesting and young cities in Texas filled with outdoor activities and festivals. The restaurants and shops, near the house, are extra ordinary. In 3 blocks you are on the hike and bike trail with miles of lovely paths.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
