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.
