The contents of billionaire Patricia Kluge's Albemarle House, a lavish take on high-style country living in the English tradition, will be auctioned by Sotheby's on June 8 and 9.

The grand 45-room estate in Albermarle County, Va., will be open May 31 for buyers of the auction catalog to preview Chinese paintings and works of art, books, sporting guns, jewels, lighting and decorative objects in their room settings.

Kluge's 23,538-square-foot mansion, situated on 300 acres, is on the market for $45 million (reduced from $100 million). She has plans to focus on her business, Kluge Estate Winery and Vineyard, and live in another home.
