Preview Kluge estate before auction

By Washington Post editors


In a May 31 story about philanthropist Patricia Kluge's estate auction, The Associated Press reported erroneously that the auction of Kluge's personal items was being handled by TTR Sotheby's International Realty. The auction of personal items is being conducted by Sotheby's. The realty company is handling the separate sale of the mansion and the grounds, which are not part of the auction.

Collectors and curiosity seekers hoping to get a piece of philanthropist Patricia Kluge's estate can preview the 300-acre property in Albemarle County before it goes up for auction.

TTR Sotheby's International Realty in Washington is conducting an on-site auction on June 8 and 9. A preview of the property runs through next Monday.

The property includes an eight-bedroom, 13-bath mansion, a pool house and pavilion, a greenhouse, extensive gardens and a wine cellar. The home is listed at $48 million and its contents are appraised at $13 million.

The least-expensive offering? A set of Majolica plates expected to bring $50 to $70.

The 61-year-old Kluge has said she's shedding her estate because she and her husband, William Moses, want to downsize and travel more.
