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 Saint 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.

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.

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!

Beautiful and Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

The Sculpture's house is the perfect location if you're looking for quiet yet walking distance from downtown St. Augustine. The house was very clean and has all the amenities mentioned in their descriptions. The kitchen has high end appliances and fully equipped with kitchenware and utensils. The beds and couches were comfortable. The best thing about the house are the clear windows that allow you to view the relaxing coastal water from the living room and bedroom. Our entire stay was very relaxing and hassle free:) I would stay at the Sculpture's House again!

Fabulous home to celebrate our 27th Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

Your home is beautiful and has one of the prettiest views available in downtown St. Augustine- the peace filled views of the Bridge of Lions, the intercostal waterway and the ocean was a triple bonus!! We walked to all of our sightseeing,shopping and dining outings since the home is so close to everything in this historical city.. We will certainly be coming back and are so grateful to have spent time in your home.

Beautiful home with stunning view

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing "Sculptor's House". Perfect house for a family gathering, large rooms, beautifully appointed and well stocked. The views of the bridges and back patio were breathtaking and the perfect place to watch a sunrise or moonrise. A short walk from downtown shops and restaurants. We can't wait to go back!
