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 River City, 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.
