Iconic Windmill From "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" Is For Sale

The iconic windmill from the 1968 film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is up for grabs for an eye-watering $11.4 million. The windmill was the home of the Potts family in the much-loved film starring Dick Van Dyke and Sally Ann Howes. Called Cobstone Mill, the home in the affluent Buckinghamshire village of Turville is surrounded by stunning countryside views. The windmill's exterior sails have been fully restored by the current owner in the last 18 months. The original working mill is still visible inside, alongside a winding staircase leading from the ground floor, where there is the main living room. The staircase leads to 2 bedrooms on the first and second floors, with views across the Hambleden Valley. Alongside the windmill, there's a separate main house on the property and almost 37 acres of land, which includes a swimming pool and outbuildings. The main flint house has a grand double-height drawing room with floor-to-ceiling doors that open onto a large terrace overlooking the sheltered swimming pool. The property has 6 bedrooms in total — including the bedroom in the separate garage annex — and currently spreads across almost 2,600 square feet. Just 50 miles from Central London, the property is selling for more than double the average price for a house in the area.
