Traditional Dutch or European smock mill.

I simply didn't know what to make of this one. Fortunately Charles Butcher writes that it's probably a cross between a working windmill and what the British call a "folly", a picturesque building, often in the form of a gothic tower, castle or ruin, put up by a wealthy landowner to enhance the view. Indeed, Charles identified it as the Chesterton mill in Warwickshire, England, built in 1632.
