Price further reduced on Kluge estate, though it remains an Albemarle high at $24M

Once among the priciest real estate listings in the country, Albemarle House, the English-style mansion owned by Patricia Kluge and her husband Bill Moses, remains the costliest listing in Albemarle County even after a recent price reduction to $24 million. It was originally listed for $100 million, before dropping to $48 million earlier this year. C’ville Bubble Blog broke the story today.

Facing foreclosure of her winery and operations, as well as $86,000 in unpaid property taxes due to Albemarle County, Kluge and Moses are also subject to a civil suit filed on October 29 by Farm Credit of the Virginias, which holds the lien on their winery property and acreage. That suit alleges a fraudulent transfer of land while Kluge and Moses were in loan restructuring discussions with Farm Credit.
