More photos: Handbag magnate’s Aquebogue mansion

If Victor Ozeri had to sell one of his houses — a situation the handbag magnate will likely never face — it would be his four-bedroom Manhattan penthouse.

His nearly-finished 6,000-square-foot Aquebogue mansion on the water is the Ozeri family’s for keeps. And that’s no secret.

“May this place serve as a sanctuary for our children’s children and their many descendents,” reads a plaque near the house’s front door, flanked on either side by 1 1/2-ton Chinese lions.

He named each of the three structures that make up Victorville by the Sea for his biological children, and christened a 1967 Airstream land yacht called “Lawgaw’s Lair” for his adopted Ethiopian son.

His adopted Ethiopian daughter has her own houseboat, made from a FEMA trailer.
