A seven-acre estate in Lattingtown built in 1913 and designed by noted architect Stanford White has come on the market for $5.25 million.

The three-story 11,000 square-foot Colonial has 12 bedrooms, eight full-bathrooms, two half-bathrooms, four fireplaces and a free-form pond.

Over the years the home has been host to many commercials, photo shoots and even a made-for-television NBC movie about the heiress Gloria Vanderbilt, “Little Gloria…Happy at Last,” starring Bette Davis, Christopher Plummer and Angela Lansbury.

“It was a very interesting experience, from seeing Bill Cosby eating Jell-O in my kitchen to watching Christopher Plummer, who was appearing on Broadway at the time, being whisked-off in a helicopter each afternoon for his 8 p.m. curtain call,” says owner Laura Sommer, adding, “it was also a very profitable experience."

The sale is being handled by brokers Stephen Checca and Laurie Schmitt of Charles Rutenberg Realty.
