Sold for the first time in its 133-year history, the iconic five-bedroom Windmill House is famous for its one-of-a-kind architectural integration of the once-functioning c. 1812 windmill. Renowned American artist, Sydney Burleigh, added his artistic touches to the interior of the mill house by incorporating Bas-relief sculptures, inscriptions, and terracotta washes to many of the home’s plaster walls. The second dwelling, the four-bedroom “Dinghy” was built in 1934 to complete the picturesque seaside family estate.
“Since I was a child, the Windmill House has always had such a magical presence in Little Compton,” says Cherry Arnold. “The combination of incredible architecture and history, breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean, and pastoral farmland surroundings make it a truly special property. I’m thrilled for the buyers who are the perfect next stewards of this beloved Little Compton estate.”
