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.
