If the shoe fits, wear it — or buy it.

The Lindenmere — an 8.2-acre Long Island estate in Center Moriches once owned by the deceased kleptomaniac autocrat Filipino President Ferdinand Marcos and his shoe-loving first lady, Imelda, 88 — has hit the market again, this time for $4.99 million, The Post has learned.

The property stands at 16 Sedgemere Road, some 10 miles west of Westhampton Beach and roughly 70 miles east of Midtown.

It’s two towns east of Anna Wintour’s gated estate in Mastic and one town west of East Moriches, where TWA flight 800 crashed into the Atlantic in 1996 following a fuel tank explosion.

This listing update marks a price reduction and a brokerage switch. Last year, the spread was available for $5.99 million.

The Marcos family bought this Moriches Bay-facing pad for an unknown sum in 1981. In 1987, the Filipino government put it on the market for a then-sky-high $4.5 million in an effort to recover Marcos monies that were taken from the Asian nation, according to a 1996 story in the New York Times. That year — after nine years on the market — it sold to a married couple named Jennie and Peter Magaro, who are not the current owners, for the way-below-asking sum of $1.6 million.

Though Ferdinand and Imelda seldom visited this manse, it’s said that workers would jump hurdles to make them feel at home — especially Imelda. In one instance, they ran out about purchased — then planted — thousands of dollars worth of flowers.

“If she was expected, they would rush through some job to make it look finished,” Jennie Magaro, told the Times. “They did want to please her so much.”

Though time has passed and the home has undergone renovations since the Marcos’ tenure, their traces remain.

“The master bedroom and bathroom are the best examples, still featuring the lavish taste of Imelda Marcos with its pink and gold onyx finishes,” says Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty salesperson Chris Foglia, one of the agents who’s marketing this property. “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.”

It appears that air holes in a first-floor closet door are gone. The Times reported this was a vestige of Imelda’s troop of bodyguards, who would be armed with large weapons and hide in closets.

The current owner, whom Foglia declined to identify, purchased the Lindenmere two years ago with the intent of restoring the estate to bed-and-breakfast use. (The Lindenmere dates back to the early 1900s and was originally built as a residence, but has also been used as a hotel and a bed and breakfast. Before the Marcos family made their purchase, it was a hotel in the mid-1900s.)

But as reported by Newsday last year, the owner is Janet Davis, who undertook her own renovations — including replacing the roof, installing a new saltwater pool and renovating 10 of the 17.5 bathrooms.

“But the whole time I was renovating it, I kept thinking that it was originally built as an estate, and I decided I wanted to keep it that,” she told Newsday at the time. “It’s the largest estate on the Great South Bay and reminiscent of the glory days of the Roaring ’20s and Gatsby era.”

The Lindenmere has 14 bedrooms. The first floor includes a living room with a fireplace and a formal dining room with floor-to-ceiling sliders that open to the bay view. There’s also a chef’s kitchen on this level. Upstairs, there’s a double master suite with a central seating area. Outside, there’s a large wraparound porch, a tennis court, a second house where guests can stay, and an oversize pool house with a bar, a half-bathroom and glass walls that look out to the bay.

Most Filipinos do not know about this property. And we are still voting the Marcoses every election.
Romans 10:9-10
"If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved."
