If you ever thought to yourself, “I wish I could just get away from everything and everyone,” you’re in luck.

A modest house located in Portsmouth, Rhode Island, is up for sale at $400,000, and it’s the only property on an Island In Narragansett Bay — so running into other people is unlikely. 

The home may need a bit of updating, but having your own private oasis at a fairly low cost makes up for it. 

According to the listing, it’s a “once in a lifetime opportunity to own a seasonal cottage,” located on 0 Patience Way at Patience Island. 

The name speaks for itself because you will need a bit of patience getting things up and running. 

There are no traditional electric services, and the home is powered by one single solar panel. You might also have a bit of trouble getting cable and internet access.
