What do the family's of S&H Green Stamps & the Eureka Vacuum Company & perhaps you have in common with an outstanding home located at 1015 Electric Street in Scranton, PA? You can be among the line of distinguished owners of this fine residence. Scranton was the first city in the United States to adopt the electric light bulb for street lighting & became known in a short time as the Electric City. And the premier addresses in the Electric City were all on Electric Street. As you approach the massive Tudor style home & step onto the curb, take note of the bluestone that has replaced not only the curb, but the entire sidewalk and entrance to the stairs leading up to the wide wrap-around porch. The entrance is grand with 10' beamed ceiling, polished oak floors, a grand staircase with two story Tiffany stained glass window & four rooms for the purposes of dining, reading, grand piano playing(currently occupied by Abraham Lincoln's White House piano - not included with the sale of home) & reception foyer. The kitchen with a stacked stone gas fire place has the requisite butler's pantry w/ wine fridge, 6 burner range, built-in commercial refrigeration, microwave, compactor, dishwasher & more. 42" cabinets, marble countertops, tiled floors & a chandelier make meal prep an elegant affair. There are 5 bedrooms on the 2nd floor. Room 1 has an en suite bath & walk-in closet. The others share a bath. The Master bedroom includes a parlor room and an elegant bath with Jacuzzi tub. The 3rd floor has the potential for 2 more very large bedrooms. If entertaining in style is important to you, the lower level will exceed your expectations: Walk-in wine cellar, reach-in humidor, recording studio, bar seating 12, piano lounge and pool table. Outside is alfresco dining area, stunning in-ground pool and a Tudor 2-car garage with loft. The A+ condition of this home and amenities too numerous to mention make this residence a must see. The home is situated on four beautifully landscaped lots in a park-like setting of comparable homes.
