Originally built in 1994, this cedar-sided, A-frame home sits on 15 acres and backs to C.J. Brown Reservoir at Buck Creek State Park. The home is listed for $425,000.

Located in the Northeastern School District, the two-bedroom, three-bathroom home with about 2,080 square feet of living space is at the end of a long drive that leads to glass-enclosed front entry.

The living room is open to the kitchen with its newer gas range, dishwasher and side-by-side refrigerator. Cabinets match the cedar siding in the rest of the home.

The dining area is next to the kitchen and features a chandelier and cathedral ceilings. There is both a picture window and oversized transom window to allow more light. A large opening over the range connects the kitchen to the family room.

Another tall transom window is in this bath. The laundry room has built in cabinets and shelving, vinyl flooring and acts as a mudroom with an exterior door.
