My employers Millionaire Estate was Sold. Im so shocked!

One never knows whats around the bend?!

I live in Texas now. But before moving here my Immigrated British husband and I lived in Virginia. This was a very difficult move from the beautiful Ablemarle county~Charlottesville Virginia. Land of Monticello home of Thomas Jefferson who wrote the Declaration of Independence. My Father had a beautiful farm in a small town named Lovingston, but years ago he got very sick and died and so the place was sold. But we still came "home" to where my Mother and brother are. The beauty was asounding the vineyards, feilds and meadows up against the Blue Ridge Mt's. Surely purple plains of majesty! I worked here at the KLUGE ESTATE. Driving to work was utter peace into the countryside to Mrs. Kluges Estate. There were two massive big wrought iron gates on each ends of the estate you would drive into. I felt so Blessed to of landed a job there! These are pictures I have to show you.

** The 300 acre Estate which has now been auctioned off by Sothbys for $45 million
**The contents of the house all furnishings were auctioned off by Sothbys
**The jewellery was auctioned off at 15.2 million

This is where I worked the house having 45 rooms..

The Kluge Estate

I was in this Master bedroom many times for the Lady of the house..
it was so beautiful. All gone now..

This was a hallway lined with beautiful statures..

Formal dining room only for dinners and parties..

This is where Mrs Kluge and her husband William Moses ate in the mornings. The view at the table looked out unto the greens expanse..

The statues in the hallway led to this beautiful room..

This was a small darling Cottage for guests if they so chose..

The whole place is gone now, the Winery is now in bankruptcy. There was also a horse barn and an auction room as Mr Kluge Mrs Kluges X husband once sold expensive horses.
The property also had a thatched cottage, a picture postcard church with Mrs Kluge and her X and child painted on the ceiling walking thru fields. Snowdrops led in springtime along the front walkway. The church also had lamp post style posts with globes for lighting next to each pew for lighting. It had to of been quite beautiful at night. Mrs Kluge and Mr Moses were very pleasant people to work for but you did not elbow with them..

I'm sorry to see Mrs Kluge lose her home, but who really knows the All of it what monies they have left? Only them. But one thing I'm sure they aren't pinching pennies! I wonder where their next journey will be?

Am I religious? Yup my God is Sovereign and has surely watched over me! He said He will "direct My paths"! Had we bought a house and settled we could of lost our home..everything! So despite the crowded and heat of Houston..
