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."

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.
The Owner purchased this house in 2005
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.
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.
The "Sculptor's House" was a perfect spot for our weeklong family gathering. The house is gorgeous on its own, augmented by the namesake sculptor's works of art.
The setting is gorgeous, with sunrises over the water and bridge lights by night. The house is an easy walk to good restaurants and many of St. Augustine's major attractions, including the Fountain of Youth, the Nombre de Dios mission and shrine, Flagler College, the "Oldest House," the Spanish Military Hospital Museum, and, of course, Fort Castillo.
Three generations of our family had a wonderful time. I'm not sure about the Fountain of Youth, but a week in the "Sculptor's House" is definitely rejuvenating.
We were lucky enough to snag this property for our family vacation!! The pictures of the property simply do not do it any justice. We loved sitting the backyard eating meals, watching the birds and boats as well as our 13 month old son running around the yard and smelling the flowers. The close proximity to historic district was also a great addition as we walked everywhere with the expection of the grocery store. Booking the property was an ease and great communication with property management! Highly recommend and our love to book again in the future!!
Beautiful, clean and everything you need. From the dolphins in the bay to the proximity to the historic district, there is nothing you will miss in this beautifully maintained and comfortable home. No one was disappointed. LOVE LOVE LOVE.
My husband, me, our two teen sons, and my parents stayed here in early November. The Sculptor's House is in a great location just a short walk to the fort (literally just a couple blocks away) and the historic downtown area. We spent quite a bit of time out in the back yard and on the patio enjoying the great water views. The weather was unseasonably cooler than we expected but it was easy to move inside and still enjoy the views out the large windows in the back living room. The home is in a nice quiet neighborhood and the landscaping provides a lot of privacy. The back yard is large and we enjoyed playing football in such a scenic setting. The home is clean, spacious, and comfortable. All three bedrooms run along the side of the house with two living areas and the dining room area in the middle of the house. The kitchen and garage are located on the other side of the house. The back bedroom has a queen bed with french doors that open to the patio and great water view. This bedroom has it's own bathroom so this room worked out well for my parents and gave them a lot of privacy. The other two bedrooms (1 king and the other 2 twins) share a bathroom located in between the rooms. The beds were very comfortable with high quality linens and bedding. The bathrooms and kitchen are updated and we had everything we needed to cook a couple of meals there. When I inquired, I spoke with one of the owners, Jeanne, by phone and she was very helpful. The property manager, Morgan, was also very responsive and even called me on our arrival day to check in and make sure everything was good for us. We own 2 VRBO properties and seek out other VRBO rentals when we travel and this home ranked up there with some of our favorite places. We had a great time in St. Augustine and this home made our stay and our family time together that much more special. We hope to get back to St. Augustine and the Sculptor's House in the future.
As an editor and writer for a travel publishing company, I've had an opportunity to stay at many beautiful places. Truly, this is one of my favorites.
The Sculptor's House is both supremely lovely and very comfortable. The peaceful tidal marsh, with a long view to the ocean, can be seen along the entire back of the home - and it is ever-changing as the tides move in and out. Each day, dolphins and herons came to fish in the inlet, and fiddler crabs scurried through the reeds near our seawall. At night, we walked to see the Castillo de San Marcos fort lit up, had ice cream at Kilwin's on St. George Street, and took a ghost tour by trolley (we really liked being in the Old Jail at night). The historic downtown, Ripley's Believe it or Not! and the visitors center is just a few minutes walk from the house, and the lighthouse, the St. Augustine Alligator Farm, and the beach are a 10-minute drive over the Bridge of Lions.
My favorite thing about our vacation was waking up early each morning to watch sunrise from the blue bedroom, and then having coffee out on the deck before going for a run through the historic district. On our second day of vacation, I called a friend to say if I could live in this house, I thought I might never ask for another thing. My two teenagers and our little dog loved it too.
