House Lust: A “Permanent Vacation” Home Near Pawtuxet Village

The waterfront property features an adorable guest cottage and outdoor kitchen.

This incredible house, located near Pawtuxet Village in Warwick, is a little like a mullet. (I know, I know: not the kindest way to describe a million-dollar house. Just hear me out.) It’s all business in front, with brick pavers and black shutters and sculpted topiaries and a tasteful robin’s egg blue door, and a party in the back, with stacks and stacks of water views, a luxe outdoor kitchen, waterside swimming pool, fire pit, twinkle lights, and the cleverest, most functional outdoor-but-really-indoor shower and seating area for after-pool cleansing.

It’s a getaway for buyers seeking a “permanent vacation,” as the listing puts it — one that’s close to work and shopping and doesn’t require a pilgrimage through beach traffic. It’s a place that feels like summer, no matter the season. The unobstructed access to Passeonkquis Cove, an Impressionist’s dreamscape, doesn’t hurt, either.

On the unofficial first day of fall, here’s your eternal summer House Lust:
