Sure, it’s not surprising to see an occasional windmill as you drive through the Hamptons. But a windmill house? Yes, it’s rare -- and this one in Amagansett, on the market for $7.9 million, was actually a working windmill from 1830 to the 1950s, says listing agent Bobby Rosenbaum of Prudential Douglas Elliman Real Estate.

In the 1950s, the windmill was converted to a guesthouse for Samuel Rubin, the founder of Faberge Perfumes. It’s about 1,100 square feet with three bedrooms and one bathroom. Writer Kurt Vonnegut supposedly rented the house, and it’s been said that Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller spent a weekend here.

Set back from the road at the end of a long driveway, the house is on 5.5 acres with views of Quail Hill farm fields, which have a 100-year-old apple orchard.
