A Hamptons home inside a windmill is asking $8 million — and attracting interest from celebrities like Alec Baldwin and Ralph Lauren — the New York Daily News reported.

The 5.4-acre property in Amagansett has two bedrooms in the same structure as a 1930s windmill. The quirky pad went residential in the 1950s, when Faberge Cosmetics founder Samuel Rubin converted it into a home.

Notable guests during Rubin’s ownership included Marilyn Monroe, Arthur Miller and Kurt Vonnegut, according to the News.

There’s a hexagonal living space with wide-plank hardwood floors and exposed beam ceilings as well as a stairway with a rope banister. The current owner, Richard Schwag, grew up in the neighboring town of Springs, and bought the house in the 1980s.

The 1,300-square-foot windmill sits a few minutes from Napeague Bay and the ocean, the News said. [NYDN] –Julie Strickland
