University of Alabama Head Coach Nick Saban purchased a waterfront estate on Jupiter Island for $17.5 million, The Real Deal has learned. 

Saban purchased the home at 619 South Beach Road that traded hands in May, sources revealed. Records show At High Tide LLC, a Delaware entity, purchased the 6,200-square-foot, six-bedroom home in Hobe Sound.

Martin County property records show a trust led by Bart Kavanaugh and Betty Sacks sold the home. It hit the market last year for $21.5 million, and the price was reduced to $19.5 million in December.

Corcoran Group agents Susan Turner and Joanne Wagner represented the seller. Tom Hughes with the Hughes Browne Group at Compass represented Saban. Hughes declined to comment. 

Saban has led Alabama’s Crimson Tide football team since 2007 and was, for a long time, the sport’s most hated coach after he pledged in a Miami Dolphins press room that he would not join Alabama days before accepting the job and leaving the Dolphins. Saban has won seven national college championships since 2003.

His Jupiter Island house, on a 0.4-acre lot, includes 300 feet of water frontage on the ocean and Intracoastal Waterway combined, according to the listing. It also has a three-car garage, two outdoor kitchens, and a guest suite with a separate entrance.  

Last year, Babe Rizzuto, an heir to the Conair fortune, paid about $35 million for an ocean-to-Intracoastal estate nearby at 609 South Beach Road. Rizzuto, daughter of the late billionaire Leandro Rizzuto, is looking to flip the property. It’s asking $49.5 million, after hitting the market in March for $55.6 million. 

The residential real estate record in Jupiter Island, a barrier island town immediately north of Palm Beach County, is held by World Golf Hall of Famer Greg Norman and his wife, Kiki’s $55 million sale of their compound to the family of billionaire Leslie Wexner in 2021.
