About the House
This home at 76 Spanish Street is known historically as the Sabate House. This one and a half story frame vernacular house tucked in between two taller homes was built by St Augustine city alderman Ramon Sabate in about 1840 and it sits back from the street. It is not the home’s original location, as it previously sat at the corner of Spanish and Treasury streets some time before 1874. It once featured weatherboard slanted at forty-five degrees, rather than placed horizontally to be parallel to the roofline. This structure is one of three Territorial Florida Period buildings still standing in Saint Augustine!
The whole house is available to guests. There is a ramp from street level to the door. There is no ramp at the threshold of the entry door nor is the downstair shower stall wheelchair accessible. But, the downstairs bath is a shower with a low ridge

We moved to St Augustine from Pennsylvania a few years ago. We enjoy living in this historic town and are close by to offer any help or answer questions. We are here to make your stay special. I have lived and worked overseas and love traveling and exploring. My favorite city is Paris and my most enjoyable vacation was Playa De Ingles in the Canary Islands. I love St Augustine's European feel and the excellent dining. I hope you will too!
