HUNTSVILLE, Tenn. — The massive Huntsville estate of former U.S. Sen. Howard Baker is going up for auction.

The Tennessean reports Furrow Auction Co. will hold an auction on Saturday for the 11.5-acre estate and much of its contents.

Baker served 18 years in the U.S. Senate, including time as Senate Majority Leader, before serving as the chief of staff to President Ronald Reagan and the ambassador to Japan for President George W. Bush. Baker died in 2014 at the age of 88.

The auction company says Baker expanded the main house on the property to over 6,000 square feet in the 1980s. A 2,000-square-foot guest house and its 2.8 acres are also up for sale.

More than 300 items, including furniture, art and a golf cart will be included in the auction.
