Long Island may be host to more windmills than anywhere else in the United States, but there’s actually only one windmill house in Montauk—and it just got its price cut for the first time since coming on the market earlier this year in May.
The home at 162 Fairview Avenue was originally asking $1.9 million when it became available for sale under agent Helen Stubbmann from Corcoran Group Real Estate, but after a price reduction it’s now listed for $1.7 million.
Built in 1928, the home was designed by architect Arthur B. Wood, who would be the home’s first owner. After occupying the home for a few decades, Wood sold the home to Mary Gosman in 1965—the same Mary Gosman who founded Gosman’s Dock along with her husband, which is still an operating restaurant in Montauk. Gosman then eventually sold it to the current owner, Marion Dailey.
The 2,600-square-foot home has six bedrooms and four bathrooms, a stone fireplace and vaulted ceilings in the living room, a southern-facing deck, and hardwood floors throughout.
This may be the only windmill house in Montauk, but it certainly isn’t the only windmill house in the Hamptons. Other notable windmill houses include Robert Downey Jr.’s iconic East Hampton getaway, and the Amagansett house that Marilyn Monroe once rented.
