Robert Downey Jr. Buys Almost Too Quaint East Hampton Windmill Cottage

by Christie Grimm · May 23, 2017

If you've ever found yourself driving down Main Street of East Hampton, you know exactly the house we're talking about. A charming town landmark, it seems not even Mr. and Mrs. Iron Man could resist the Edward DeRose Windmill Cottage's allure. Listed just last year at a price of $11,950,000, we're sure Downey didn't have to do too much haggling, considering he is one of Hollywood's highest paid actors.

Dating back to 1885, the historic home - an actual replica of a windmill - sits on 4 acres alongside a 2-bedroom guest cottage and studio, totaling the property at 7 bedrooms, 6 full bathrooms, and 5 half-baths.

While we may have pegged Downey for more of a modern, hard edged, black and metal man, click through for an inside look at his quaint new digs.
