Sitting right along the Connecticut River, this cottage-style converted windmill home is the ultimate whimsical getaway sans any bells and whistles. Built in 1967, the local landmark currently listed for $1.85M spreads a modest 840 square feet over three levels. The first floor offers a living room and wet bar; the second contains two bedrooms, one of which includes a ladder to the attic lounge area. With a wrap-around deck and rectangular windows on all sides, the quaint little abode is perfectly tuned-in to its surroundings: a soothing union of water, marshes, birds, and the occasional sailboat.
