Nick Saban's Georgia mountain mansion to be auctioned

— ATLANTA (AP) — University of Alabama football coach Nick Saban is selling his lake-front estate with its three-story lighthouse, custom boat house and stunning views in the north Georgia mountains.

A real estate firm Wednesday confirmed that the 9,600-square-foot home northeast of Atlanta, known as The Pointe on Lake Burton, will be sold privately in a June 6 auction.

Concierge Auctions says the home on the shores of the mountain lake was originally listed at $10.95 million. A brochure says it has "jaw-dropping 270-degree cascading mountain, lake and sunset views."

Details of the sale were reported by the Atlanta Business Chronicle.

Saban said in a statement to The Associated Press that he developed the Rabun County property with builder Jim Suddes.

The coach said he has another home on the lake, his favorite getaway.
