Want to Wear the 'Witch's Hat'? This Water Mill Queen Anne Is Asking $2.3M

An original Queen Anne Victorian house, built in 1884 and renovated by its owner, AD100 designer Richard Keith Langham, is now listed for sale at $2,295,000. Located in Water Mill at 268 Mill Pond Lane on .92 acres, the house is surrounded by high hedges and Langham’s favorite hydrangeas. But the real reason it can’t be missed is its distinctive turret rooftop, which has earned it the nickname “the Witch’s Hat House.”

According to Curbed, Langham purchased the property in 2000 for $795,000. Following a renovation, the designer took advantage of the home’s expansive, 3,259-square-foot, 4-bedroom, 4-bathroom footprint, and entertained regularly, hosting up to 58 guests during the summer. Originally from Alabama, Langham credits his Southern roots for his hospitable nature, telling Flower Mag that he wanted to create a home “where everyone feels welcome, special, and just a little bit spoiled.”
