Luxury House of National Champion Alabama Head Coach Nick Saban - The Pointe

While it takes a great builder to craft a home that exceeds the finest of expectations, it takes an imaginative eye to build a home that embodies the heart and soul of nature’s graceful beauty while providing the ease and flow of luxury living. Few homes are designed with such careful attention to evoking long-term delight as “The Pointe” on Lake Burton’s luxurious shore in north Georgia’s Appalachian Mountains. Visionary builder Jim Suddes, together with long-time friend, Nick Saban, along with their wives Denise and Terry, respectively, have taken a piece of property—raw with nature’s wild beauty—and created a home that carries on the legacy of the land while marrying it to their vision of tasteful living. 

“The Pointe” on Lake Burton offers a 270-degree view of the lake, mountains and sky highly coveted by buyers seeking property on Lake Burton. Designed to complement the distinguishing buyer’s taste for comfort, amenities, and living artfully with nature, Suddes built “The Pointe” using natural local stone, reclaimed timber beams and heart-of-pine flooring, Pennsylvania bluestone, and custom built fireplaces with hand-crafted brick. The home features more than 10,000 square feet of living space, six bedrooms, nine baths, a massive grand room with a twenty-four-foot vaulted ceiling, a 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. A custom boat house with viewing deck—prized by Lake Burton residents as architectural features of their property—sits along the water’s edge along with a swimming dock.

One of the home’s most commanding features is the authentic stone lighthouse designed to provide amazing views from all three levels of the home, along with a terrace-level entertainment deck, firepit and gourmet outdoor kitchen/grilling area. 

“This is truly a pinnacle home on Lake Burton,” says Julie Barnett, Realtor® at Harry Norman, Realtors® - Luxury Lake and Mountain, specializing in the Lake Burton area. “The thought that went into 

the placement and features of this home make it a fabulous place 

to live and enjoy the beauty of the lake.”

“Our family finds so much peace and tranquility in the beauty of Lake Burton,” says Terry Saban.

“People choose to live on Lake Burton because they are buying a lifestyle for generations to come. It is truly one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen and the people of Lake Burton are extraor-dinary. It is not a lake of ‘who’s who’—it is a lake for people that want the best for their families,” says Suddes.

Scenic Carmel Point, California - $11,500,000 Luxury Home

Sweeping views of azure Pacific Ocean, ruby red sunsets, light breezes that caress the summer with refreshing coolness—your ideal Carmel escape awaits in this luxurious home located on one of the most coveted shorelines in California. Within walking distance of Carmel Beach and the city of Carmel-by-the-Sea, you’ll enjoy owning one of the few properties along the shore that offers all the amenities of a primary residence.

“Most homes along the Carmel coast are beach houses, fairly small and used primarily as second homes,” says Peter Butler, listing agent of the property and owner of Carmel Realty Company. “This casually elegant home offers 3,850 square feet of living space, four bedroom suites a formal living room, large family room, separate dining room and large eat-in kitchen with butler’s pantry. All of this on a street-to-street lot on the western tip of Carmel Point—making it a very rare offering to come on the market.”

The property has been meticulously remodeled with thoughtful details throughout including gourmet appliances, natural stone surfaces, hardwood floors, two marble fireplaces, and custom cabinetry. Carefully placed windows allow magnificent views of the ocean from Point Lobos to Pebble Beach from the living room, dining room and master bedroom.  A brick fire pit is located on the oceanside patio and an expansive second story deck overlooks the ocean waves crashing on the rocky shoreline just below. Mature Cypress trees add extra privacy and character to the site while offering a perfect frame to the picturesque views. 

“This is a perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine, unwind and watch the sunset. A very tranquil way to end your day,” Butler says. A courtyard with mature landscaping offers a private getaway for solitude or entertaining, sited to take advantage of the morning sun and be shielded from any chilling ocean breezes. 

“Many people who own property here come here to enjoy the refreshing ocean air and cool temperatures during the summer,” Butler says. “It’s a wonderful place to enjoy all that Carmel has to offer.”

Rated as a top-ten destination by Conde Nast Traveler, Carmel-by-the-Sea is famous for its European charm, gorgeous sand beach, eclectic collection of shops, galleries, unique restaurants and its legendary history of being home to artists, performers, academics and those looking for a unique getaway in one of the world’s most naturally beautiful landscapes.
