But no — the coach of the reigning college football champs says the real reason he’s dumping the 9,600-square-foot, six-bedroom, $10.95 million monstrosity at 112 Whipporwill Lane in Clayton, Ga., is simply because his family has another home on Lake Burton. Two would just be too much.
“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.”
The home in the North Georgian mountains, which sits on a 1.7-acre plot, is now going to the highest bidder in an auction scheduled for June 6. While photos of the home do not reveal any college football paraphernalia, they do show that whoever put this place together wasn’t joking around. With “natural local stone” and “reclaimed timber beams” as well as custom fireplaces and other craftsmanship, including a custom boathouse, there’s not much to argue with when it comes to finding luxury in this home.
