Welcome to 53 Whitson Drive where everything you could possible want in a home is now available to you! This four bedroom, three and a half bathroom home in Salem Woods is labeled as DO NOT WAIT! Originally a three bedroom, the current owner added a beautiful main floor bedroom with an in suite full bathroom. This extra room on the main floor, which has it's own mini-split, can be used as a bedroom, office, or just as extra space! The kitchen opens up to a beautiful Trex deck that leads right to the above ground pool. There is an electric awning so that you can sit in the shade and watch people enjoying the pool or the view! A fantastic white privacy fence is around the entire backyard, but beyond that is open land that cannot be built on for as far as the eye can see. The wooded edges open up to a beautiful field giving beautiful views all year round. The pool has a new pump and a cover and all pool equipment will be included; however, the pool will be sold as-is and seller will not make any repairs to the pool itself. In 2022 major changes happened at this home. New siding, new windows, new roof, new fascia, new soffits, new HVAC system, whole house plumbing replaced with all new piping, and new vinyl plank flooring in the entire downstairs. A new stackable washer and dryer was purchased two months ago. There is an outside sprinkler system that also has a programmable unit with a sensor. If there has been sufficient rain, the sprinklers do not engage. The driveway was extended to add parking for multiple cars and ramps were added to the front porch for wheelchair access. The sump pump is four years old, and while there is no egress in the basement, the walls are already drywalled and the floor is sealed so it can be easily finished. The basement also offers a large storage space with shelving. On April 7th, a Concrete Protection System is being added to the garage floor by Dry Zone. Simply add a fresh coat of paint in your favorite color to the downstairs and this house will be move-in ready!!! This home is conveniently located near major highways, malls, and shopping, as well as set within the five mile radius for Newark Charter School; while still peacefully located in the back of Salem Woods. Book your showings today. We know this one will be the talk of the town!
