The Pointe, Nick Saban’s waterfront estate on Lake Burton, nestled in North Georgia’s Appalachian Mountains will be offered on sale by Concierge Auctions on June 27th, three weeks later than the originally scheduled date. Lucky new buyer will enjoy luxury living with unparalleled imagination and stunning lake and mountain views with over 9,600 square feet on 1.7 acres and 700 feet of frontage.
Developed with the shared vision of University of Alabama head football coach Nick Saban and luxury home developer Jim Suddes, The Pointe carries on the legacy of the land while marrying it to their vision of tasteful living. Originally listed for $10.95 million, the six-bedroom, nine-bathroom home will be sold without reserve.
There is a massive great room with 24-foot vaulted ceiling, wine cellar with antique gate from Barcelona, European-style custom-built pub, billiards room, home office, custom formal and professional kitchens, staff quarters and four-car garage. Some of details include natural local stone, reclaimed timber beams, heart pine and Pennsylvania Bluestone flooring, custom-built fireplaces with handcrafted brick, oversized windows showcasing dramatic views.
Outside, the property features a custom boat house with a swimming dock and an authentic, Cape Cod-style stone lighthouse, which showcases amazing 270-degree lake and mountain views.
Now, if you’re wondering why anyone would sell a house like this, here is the answer:
“My family and I own another home on the lake, which we have enjoyed for 12 years, so I was excited when this very special lot came available to develop with Jim [Suddes],” stated Saban. “Lake Burton is our favorite getaway. It’s a beautiful, hidden gem, where we find great peace and seclusion.”
