Haven’t planned a summer vacation yet and have $55,000 floating around? Then consider renting this East Hampton windmill home, a unique abode once leased in 1957 by Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller. The charming two-bedroom, one-bathroom house measures 1,100 square feet across three floors. The windmill home, located in the historic Amagansett neighborhood, is currently only available for the entire summer, from Memorial Day to Labor Day, and year-round for $68,000 (h/t Curbed Hamptons).
In the 1950s, Samuel Rubin, creator of the Faberge perfume company, converted the working windmill into a home. After Rubin lived there, other celebrities spent their summer in the home, including writer Kurt Vonnegut and British actor Terence Stamp.
The first floor of the windmill contains the living area, the second has the bedrooms and the third floor is currently being used as storage space, but could be converted into another bedroom.
Although the shape of the home does not allow for much square-footage, it sits on five acres of land, letting residents enjoy plenty of nature in private. According to the listing, the windmill was built in the 1880s but the home has been recently renovated and decorated.
While the property has that “middle of nowhere” vibe, it does sit near beaches, the Amagansett National Wildlife Refugee and Long Island Rail Road transit stations.
