A woodburning fireplace is a delight. Move it outside—say, onto a private terrace or into a garden—and it becomes a decadent amenity. These homes all feature fabulous outdoor hearths, because why should a little thing like the weather keep you from lounging outside all winter long?
Without a doubt, the centerpiece of this three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath townhouse at 9 ½ Jane Street (priced at $5.990 million) is its landscaped south-facing garden, accessible through floor-to-ceiling glass windows from the open kitchen and complete with a gas fire pit for outdoor gatherings.
If your idea of paradise is cozying up in front of the fire while taking in vieww of the Hudson and beyond, look no further than this four-bedroom, five-bath condo at 732 West End Avenue (yours for $7.9 million), which features a 700-square-foot rooftop terrace—the apartment includes another terrace of the living room, not to mention two additional balconies to boot—anchored by this outdoor fireplace.
If your winter plans include hanging out by the fire with a few dozen of your closets friends, this six-bedroom, six-and-a-half-bath Tribeca penthouse condo at 35 North Moore Street (on the market for $35.5 million) will serve you well, thanks to not one but two 1,500 square foot terraces, including this one, which offers plenty of seating around a sconce-lit fireplace.
As if the tree house wasn’t enough of a draw, this four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath furnished townhouse at 283 Adelphi Street in Fort Greene (for rent at $8,000/month) also features a stone fire pit around which the whole crew can cook up s’mores and sing camp songs.
There’s no better way to pass a chilly afternoon than with a dip in a heated plunge pool (yes, that's a pool back there!) followed by a warming up by the gas fireplace on the private landscaped terrace of this fab 5,900 square foot duplex penthouse at 350 West Broadway (for sale at $26.5 million).
