Unique House built around a Cistern in Central Austin on half acre

The "Cistern House" is a stone structure which features a stunning round room that originally served as a cistern 100 years ago. The cistern portion of the home serves as the kitchen, dining area and second living. It has red brick floors, 13 windows, tongue and groove ceiling, granite counter tops and a wood burning stove. The home has 2 bedrooms, 2 living, 2 full bath, and 1 office. It also has an attached apartment that is rented separately and a pottery studio in the back of the 1/2 acre lot (it is not included in the rental). Very large trees cover the grounds. It is within walking distance to Zilker Park, Barton Springs Pool, Lady Bird Lake, Alamo Drafthouse and many restaurants and coffee shops.

About Me
My husband and I are both retired professors and have a second home on the Texas coast, so like to rent out our main home in Austin or do exchanges. The home has an apartment attached that we rent out on a monthly basis. My husband is a potter, so also maintains a pottery studio on our 1/2 acre property in central Austin as well as in Rockport, where our second home and sailboat is located. We love to travel, so would be open to new places for the right exchange. Our daughter lives in Germany, near Frankfurt, so we would especially be interested in an exchange there. We prefer to be near a large body of water.
