Windmill houses are somewhat common for the East End—Robert Downey, Jr. purchased an iconic windmill cottage in East Hampton last year, and Marilyn Monroe’s windmill rental is currently available for the summer. Now, you can own your own Hamptons windmill house—and according to the New York Post, it’s the only windmill house that exists in Montauk.
Built in 1928, the home was designed by architect Arthur B. Wood, who would be the home’s first owner. Arthur B. Wood was also the architect for race car driver Carl Fisher, whose Montauk home was listed earlier this year for $9.5 million.
In 1965, Wood sold the home to Mary Gosman—the same Mary Gosman who founded Gosman’s Dock along with her husband, which is still an operating restaurant in Montauk. Gosman then sold it to the current owner, Marion Dailey.
In 2,600 square feet of living space, the whimsical home features six bedrooms and four bathrooms. Many period details of the 90-year-old home have been maintained, such as the hardwood floors, the stone fireplace, and the wood-beamed vaulted ceilings in the living room.
Sited north of the highway at 162 Fairview Avenue, the 0.23-acre property is about a mile from Montauk shops and restaurants, and about a mile and a half from Ditch Plains Beach.
The home is listed for $1.9 million under Corcoran Group’s real estate agent, Helen Stubbmann.
