Tucked away on a two-acre plot of woods on Valley Forge Mountain, this modern home just came on the market for a hair short of half a million—$499,000.

The four-bed, three-bath home was designed by architect Paul L’Esperance in the mid-1970s, and it’s a clear marker of its time period. Throughout the house find features like high, vaulted ceilings with exposed wood beams and oversized windows, which help to integrate the home with its woodsy surroundings.

A three-sided fireplace, built-in couch, and open floor plan with different levels in the floor are highlights of the living room.

A hallway past the dining area leads into the kitchen, with access to one of two porches that overlook the woods. The other is in the master bedroom on the same floor. The main floor is also the top floor, as the home is build into the side of a hill. The lower level includes a suite with a kitchen, bedroom, and second living space.
