About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

The Sculptor's House proves that you can have it all! This amazing home on the water's edge looks straight out St. Augustine Inlet to the open sea, where Spanish galleons sailed in search of sanctuary over 450 years ago. You're just one block from the historic Castillo de San Marcos on a peaceful, elegant street, so you can leave your car in the garage and walk to the best cafes, shops and galleries in town. At the end of the day, you'll stroll in the shade of towering oaks and grand Victorian homes to your own private, secluded getaway.

Originally home to St. Augustine's finest sculptor, the Sculptor's House has just been luxuriously renovated with artistry and charm. The three ample bedrooms and one pull-out sofa offer sleeping for eight in One King, One Queen and Two Twin Beds. Three flat screen TVs, hi-speed wireless Internet and an integrated sound system provide entertainment for the whole family. French doors from the master suite open to a private patio with calming views of the ocean, bay and Bridge of Lions.

As you relax on the beautiful terraces, admire the Sculptor's House works of art or lounge in the spacious living areas your cares will simply melt away. "Beautiful restoration, beautiful view, great location."

About Katherine Abboud & Jeanne Abboud

The Sculptor's House has been in our family for over 50 years. It was home to our great uncle, Ted Karam, who is one of Saint Augustine's most prestigious sculptors. Our uncle left us his home and we've named the house after him thus, "The Sculptor's House".

We are Jeanne and Katherine Abboud. We are sister's and we co-own The Sculptor's House.

Katherine Abboud & Jeanne Abboud purchased this house in 2005

Why Katherine Abboud & Jeanne Abboud chose St Augustine

Someone once told us that "you don't pick Saint Augustine, it picks you", and they are right! We inherited this fabulous house and renovated it down to the last detail. We were inspired by our Uncle's creativity, and his love for Saint Augustine. This is our family jewel, and we're enjoying creating so many family memories at The Sculptor's House.

What makes this house unique

The Sculptor's House allows our family, friends, and guests to experience Saint Augustine to it's fullest. We are conveniently located on a quiet, peaceful street, yet we are a few minute walk to downtown. We spent 2 years renovating the house so that it has every convenience.

The best part about The Sculptor's House is that you can walk to town, sit on the wrap around terrace and enjoy the breath taking view, walk through the gardens, or pick fresh fruit from our own orchard on the property; complete with grapefruit, oranges, limes, lemons, and cumquats, and avocados.

The Sculptor's House proves that you can have it all - the convenience to town, while enjoying the peaceful tranquility of the water. We truly have the best location and view in the city. This is a real treasure for all who visit.

Great property and location !

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed watching porpoises swim by and an incredible variety of marine birds. A short walk to downtown and many historical sites. Recommend Flagler College tour, light house and fort.

We stayed at the Sculptor's House for New Year's Eve 2010--it was a beautiful setting. The home is furnished lovely and the views from the family room are stunning.

It's All About the View

  • 4 of 5

The view from the picture window in this house is spectacular! The weather turned quite cold so we spent many days in the house watching the wildlife feeding as the tides changed. The best show in town!

We were disappointed the king bed was not in the master which would have made the stay easier for my husband and I. The bedroom in the front of the house is located directly beside the heating unit outside. When the heater came on it was very loud in this bedroom, loud enough to disrupt sleep.

The art work in the house is beautiful and definitely an asset for a vacation rental home.

Awesome Place with a Great View

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house during the Christmas season and it was the perfect place to be close to town and the lights. The place was clean and comfortable and I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

Beautiful setting, close to the attractions and a very comfortable house!

  • 5 of 5

8 of us really had a nice time and were very comfortable. I think a few more towels would have been nice, but other than that a five star property. The agent was easy to deal with and was accessible. I would recommend this property highly!

We have never been to St. Augustine before so location if the home we picked was very important to us. This location is perfect. Walking distance to the fort and historic district and then just a short drive across the bridge to Vilano beach. We thoroughly enjoyed the house. The back porch/yard view is stunning. The a.c. unit had an issue but it was resolved in a very quick manner on a Sunday (fathers day). Excellent management and a wonderful home. We look forward to coming back sometime soon!
