Famed Windmill House Marilyn Monroe Rented in the Hamptons Asks $11.5M
It’s no secret that the Hamptons is full of interesting homes, whether they are new and modern or quirky and historic. This abode falls into the latter category. Rented by Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller sometime in 1957, The Windmill House in Amagansett is a real charmer. It has been available to rent in the past, but the winds have changed and it can now be purchased for $11.5 million.
Full of personality, the storybook home dates back to 1830 and only boasts a quaint 1,300-square-feet. Spread across three levels, it feels bigger than one would imagine and just as enchanting. It has two bedrooms, one bath, cozy living areas, and a kitchen, everything one needs at a Hamptons getaway. Outside, the deal gets sweeter with space to dine al fresco and a pizza oven.
Though the windmill home with Old Hollywood history is a major selling factor, the potential of the lot is just as alluring. Offering five acres of prime Amagansett land, a buyer with vision could choose to build a home as large as 20,000-square-feet.
With its costly price tag and whimsical appeal, this listing may have many house hunters wondering “How to Marry a Millionaire” or become one. For those who can make such an offer at the moment, they can reach out to Bobby Rosenbaum of Douglas Elliman.
