This historic 8.2+/- acre waterfront estate presents a unique opportunity and great value for a savvy waterfront buyer. Designed and built by Stanford White in the early 1900s, the home has served as a private residence, a hotel and restaurant and an elegant bed and breakfast, and is offered for sale as a private waterfront compound. One of the remaining grand estates that lined the Great South Bay, the Lindenmere was host to the rich and famous during the Roaring '20s and the Great Gatsby days. During the 1980s the property was purchased by Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos, who added the elevated pool and grand glass and marble pool house. Acknowledged as a historic landmark in 2015, the Lindenmere, named for the many stately 100 year old linden trees growing on the property, has undergone a major renovation, a return to its former glory as one of the remaining waterfront estates of Long Island.
