The iconic Windmill House, offered for the first time in its 130-yr history. An idyllic 3-season family compound with 2 houses, pristine grounds, sweeping ocean views, surrounded by more than 150 acres of farmland. Built in 1886 and famous for its one-of-a-kind architectural integration of a once-functioning windmill, the 5-bedroom 3-season Mill house is both functional and picturesque, with porches and interconnected dining and sitting rooms that take in the spectacular pastoral and ocean views. The Mill House second floor features a sun-drenched ensuite master bedroom, as well as three additional bedrooms and bath. The third floor features the Tower bedroom, perched at the top of the mill, with 180-degree views out to the Atlantic Ocean and across the Sakonnet passage. Renowned American artist, Sydney Burleigh, added his artistic touches to the interior of the Mill House by incorporating Bas-relief sculptures, inscriptions, and terra cotta washes to many of the home's plaster walls. The 4-bedroom "Dinghy" house is a classic summer cottage with 1600 square feet of sunny living space, a fireplaced living room and an outdoor shower. With its two spacious houses and rolling lawns, surrounded by the picturesque pastoral landscape that Little Compton is known for, this very special property is the perfect seaside retreat. A rare offering! Buyer pays LCAT.
