Call it an open house with an open heart. On Sunday, an open house featuring a recently constructed 7,200-square-foot Colonial listed for $4,995,000 in Lloyd Harbor will benefit Toys for Tots.
“It’s a great cause,” says Laura Zambratto, associate broker of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty, who is marketing the house. “There are so many children that don’t get any gifts for Christmas because their families are struggling, and you have to give back.”
The event will take place from 3 to 5 p.m. at 20 Beardsley Lane. A cellist will perform, and hors d’oeuvres and light cocktails will be served.
Anyone who comes is asked to bring a new, unwrapped toy.
As for the 10-room house, it was designed by Matthew Korn Architects in Roslyn and built by Frank Meak Jr. of M. Development in Huntington. Zambratto says the appointments are extraordinary — especially the millwork. “Every ceiling on the first floor is coffered, Zambratto says, noting that some of the coffers are curved and arched, and the interiors of some are painted.
Other features include wood floors in a herringbone style and a red cedar roof. There are six bedrooms and 6.5 baths.
The 3.88-acre parcel is landscaped with a tennis court, a pool, a cabana and a guest cottage.
