The entire estate offers 7 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms with an office and library occupying the windmill structure.

The property first came on the market in 2014 with a $13.5M price tag; it was most recently asking $11.9M. Peter Turino of Brown Harris Stevens represented the listing, which Curbed reported.

The living room features a beamed ceiling. The kitchen features a coffered ceiling and a spacious center island. Chandeliers hang from exposed beams in the sun room. The master bedroom has a separate sitting area. A pergola looks out over the patio. The screened porch has space for living and dining.
