The onetime Long Island get away for controversial Filipino President Ferdinand Marcos and his famously shoe-obsessed first lady Imelda is back on the market. The 8.2-acre estate in Center Moriches is asking just under $5 million, according to the New York Post.

Located at 16 Sedgemere Road, the property known as Lindenmere had previously asked about $6 million when it first listed last year.

The Marcos family bought bay-front house for an unknown sum in 1981. But their honeymoon with the sprawling house was short lived and in 1987, the Filipino government put it on the market for $4.5 million. It sat on the market for nine years before selling to Jennie and Peter Magaro for $1.6 million. The identity of the current owner has yet to be revealed.

The house currently features a saltwater pool and  17.5 bathrooms.

“The master bedroom and bathroom are the best examples, still featuring the lavish taste of Imelda Marcos with its pink and gold onyx finishes,” Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty salesperson Chris Foglia, one of the agents who’s marketing this property, told the Post. “Additionally, the pagoda-style pool house was Marcos-designed and features two Capiz shell chandeliers left by them and a restored custom rug that also belonged to Imelda.”
