Those Sarissa MDF buildings are quite nice- I have a couple of their townhouses.

Not sure about the windmill being an "English" design; looks more European (in a non-Brexit way, just to be clear) to me.

I think the mill is a design known as a 'post mill'. Most old windmills that survive in Britain are stone built tower mills, which is why we don't associate post mills with England.

As far as I know, post mills were most common in England in the Middle Ages. By the ECW period the more advanced tower mill was more common but post mills still existed.

It seems that the post mill design survived in some areas of Europe much longer than in Britain.
