It may still be warm, but real fall—think leaves on the ground and cooler, crispier temps—is right around the corner, which has us dreaming of afternoons curled up by the fire. If you don’t have your own fab fireplace, perhaps you can imagine yourself basking in the glow of one of these.
Nearly $25 million buys you not one but two matching fireplaces in the 40-foot living room of this single family townhouse at 47 West 9th Street in prime Greenwich Village. If that’s not enough for you, there’s another one in the garden level library and a fourth in the master bedroom. All are wood burning, natch.
With a custom 14-foot ebonized steel fireplace and mantel, the living room of this two bedroom, two bath loft at 46 Lispenard Street (for rent at $15,000/month) practically decorates itself.
Who needs radiant heat floors in the bathroom, when you can step out of the soaking tub and warm yourself by the fire? This six-bedroom townhouse at 161 East 63rd Street has seven original fireplaces (all with antique or period mantels to boot!), including this one in the master bath.
The two-story penthouse of this five bedroom, six and a half-bath co-op at 300 Central Park West (on the market for $24.95 million) boasts Central Park and skyline views as well as this very grand, wood-mantled fireplace.
