Alabama head football coach Nick Saban wants to make something perfectly clear - He's not selling his beloved Lake Burton, Ga. lake house. The stories you've been hearing about a $10.95 million-dollar house on Lake Burton that Saban has up for auction is an investment property that he also owns.
Saban is also apparently quite annoyed at the confusion, as he get a little testy about being asked by a reporter at a Crimson Caravan "if it was a difficult decision to put (Saban's) house up for sale."
"It’s not my house," Saban said of the investment property on Lake
Burton in northeast Georgia. "I bought a lot. I let a guy build a spec
house on it. Now it’s up for sale and he can’t sell it, so he’s going to
auction it off.
"I live in my house on the lake. This is a spec
house, so how is it my house? That’s what I can’t figure out. … Anybody
ever build a spec house and try to sell it? And I was doing my buddy a
favor by letting him use my lot to build a spec house, so now it’s my
house? It doesn’t even have any furniture in it."
Here's video of Saban's response to the question, along with responses to other questions from reporters. The fun with the Lake Burton investment property begins at the 4:41 mark.
