Island In Narragansett Bay Has Just One Home And It's For Sale

PORTSMOUTH, R.I. (CBS) -- It doesn't get much more private than this. A home in Narragansett Bay is up for sale and it's the only one on the entire island.

"Want to have an island to yourself?" the real estate listing from Michael Russo at RI Real Estate Services reads. "Once in a lifetime opportunity."

It's a bit of a fixer-upper - and there's no electricity other than a single solar panel. But it comes with just under a half acre of land, two bedrooms, a kitchenette and a half bath.
