Oh, the irony!
The only home on Patience Island in the Ocean State’s Narragansett Bay recently hit the market for $399,000, the first time it’s been up for sale since the original owners erected the cottage in 1972, a listing page reports. Hopeful homeowners might need a little patience to update the 600 square-foot space, as the “off the grid” unit has no electricity. The charming cottage on the 0.39-acre lot features two bedrooms, a kitchenette, half-bath, a screened porch and quick access to the beach.
Rhode Island Real Estate Service advertises the seaside retreat as a “very special opportunity” ready-made for “comfortable camping, getaways, amazing Airbnb potential and more.” The home has been owned and loved by the same family for 49 years.
