Welcome home to 605 Kincaid- situated in prime East Ravinia. This serene neighborhood offers delightful walks with family or dog, along curving streets bordered by established oaks. The approach to this 5 BR, 3 full BA, 2 half BA home is edged with pavers framing perennial beds, and a generous driveway for guest parking. Built in 2002 by a custom builder, the current owners made substantial improvements in design and function. The exterior of the home is brick and stone with an inviting Tudor turret entryway framed by custom made copper details. Just inside, the soaring height of the atrium, grand staircase, and coffered ceiling accent immediately illustrate the dramatic scale of every space in this home. (As you wander through, this will become apparent: room sizes are generous here!) Contemporary columns and arches frame the view from the atrium to the great room, which is wrapped with impressive floor-to-ceiling library cabinetry. A wood burning fireplace warms this beautiful entertaining space- and the massive windows flood the room with wonderful natural light. A few steps up is a dining room and sprawling chef's kitchen- with a lovely arched cut through window overlooking the great room. This spacious kitchen, dining room, and great room combination could host elegant holiday parties for a huge group, or provide a casual setting for football parties on Sunday afternoons. The kitchen is light and bright, with a white/ pale grey scheme, dining island, plenty of cabinetry, and soft, elegant stone counters. The commercial range w/high velocity hood has 6 burners, a griddle for leisurely pancake breakfasts, two ovens, and a pot-filler. The refrigerator is HUGE: plenty of room for daily use but also perfect for holiday and party prep. There are two sinks, and two pantries. The dining room is large enough for a single long table to seat 12, or two parallel tables, side by side, to seat more. This is a party-lover's kitchen: through French doors off the dining room is a maintenance-free Trex deck for lounging or dining- so you can let the party pour outside. A few steps down from the deck is a second dining or lounging are, this one limestone paved, with a pretty fire pit. Back inside: a wonderful Primary retreat with vaulted ceiling and gorgeous natural light- this room has plenty of room for a seating/lounging area. The Primary has TWO oversized walk-in closets... more storage for clothing, shoes, luggage, and even athletic gear, than you could possibly fill! The primary bath has travertine floors, granite counter, stone vessel sinks, a bubble tub, an oversized, glassed shower, and a grand chandelier. Bedrooms 2, 3, and 4 all have large windows and fitted closets. Bedroom 5 is large enough to be utilized as a 2nd Primary for an in-law arrangement, or for a teenager to host sleepovers. Downstairs is one of the tallest, largest, brightest basements you will find anywhere! Recently renovated, this is a space for everyone to enjoy: a huge play area, space to work out, a large bar for serving drinks and laying out a party buffet... plus a home theater! Also downstairs, a laundry room, multiple storage rooms, a workshop, and a very pretty powder room that guests will love. Other great features: extra closet upstairs to install additional laundry; a balcony on the 2nd floor overlooking a fully-fenced back yard; new zoned heating/AC; ceiling fans in many rooms; electronic dimmers throughout the house; and a 3 car garage with abundant storage plus a Tesla charger. Following a recent hail storm, insurance is replacing the roof, copper downspouts, gutters, and garage doors next month! Your new home will have all these brand new features installed before you move in! Add these to the updated kitchen, sprawling basement with home theater, new 5th bedroom, new appliances, second floor HVAC, tankless water heater, and it adds up to a lot of "news"
