Saban putting $10.95-million getaway up for auction

The SportsXchange

When Nick Saban wants to get away, he packs up the family and heads to Clayton, Ga., to his 9,600-square-foot, six-bedroom home on Lake Burton.

But now the coach of the reigning NCAA champion Alabama Crimson Tide has decide to sell the $10.95 million home -- and that decision has nothing to do with the Alabama-Georgia rivalry.

Saban has decided one home on Lake Burton is enough.

"My family and I own another home on the lake," Saban said in a statement, according to the Atlanta Business Chronicle. "Lake Burton is our favorite getaway. It's a beautiful, hidden gem, where we find great peace and seclusion."

Saban's hidden gem has more than 700 feet of lake frontage and well as mountain and sunset views. For peace and seclusion on the 1.7 acre plot, the Sabans have enjoyed a massive grand room with a 24-foot vaulted ceiling, formal and professional kitchens, a wine cellar and a European-style pub room.

And of course along with the custom boathouse there are staff quarters at the North Georgia estate.

Saban's home will go to the highest bidder in an auction scheduled for June 6.
