A Piece of Rhode Island Seaside History, Offered for the First Time

One of Little Compton’s newest listings is garnering a great deal of attention. The iconic Windmill House, built in 1886, is famous for its on-of-a-kind architectural integration of an actual once-functioning windmill. The idyllic three-season family compound features two houses, pristine grounds, sweeping ocean views, and is surrounded by more than 150 acres of protected farmland.
