depends on the size of the snake you'll be getting, what look you're going for, and the money you have to spend.

basic adult cage:
20 gal, aspen bedding, large water bowl, basically any brand of heat pad that will cover 1/5 to 1/4 of the under side of the tank, keep the room in mid-ish 70s and have the hot spot be 85-90.

basic baby cage:
plastic shoe box or kritter keeper cage, paper towel bedding, water bowl, corner of the cage placed on a human heating pad. really lots of simple options for babies... very hard to go wrong as long as they have food, water, and a warm spot.

on the other side of the coin, you could put an adult in a 55 gal tank complete with multiple hides, small tree branches, a mini waterfall, piles of rocks, and have custom bedding from soil, sand, and leaf litter (baked to kill bugs and fungus).

If you think you may want more snakes in the future, buy a small rack system with 4-6 tubs and everything but the water bowl and bedding will be covered for your corn and 3-5 future snakes.
