Covet: Decorative mantels tailor-made for stockings—and Santa

Share this Article

Finding a spot for a Christmas tree in a typical New York City apartment is challenging enough. Locating a place to hang the stockings may be mission impossible unless, of course, you lived in one of these homes, which come conveniently adorned with fireplaces and mantels practically begging for an oversized red and green sock or two.

The chic, white-washed fireplace and mantel of this three-bedroom, two-bath West Village townhouse at 60 Perry Street (offered at $23,500/month) is almost too pretty to clutter with stocking, but where’s the holiday fun in that?

Swap those floral bouquets for some boughs of holly and this fireplace—within a six-bedroom, eight-bath townhouse at 22 East 95th Street (yours for $15.9 million)—is holiday-ready.

For a more tailored look, nothing beats the gorgeous fireplace and mantel of this 3,300-square-foot four-bedroom, four-bath co-op at 101 Central Park West (on the market for $20 million).

This gut-renovated, single-family home at 279 West 4th Street (priced at $39,000/month) comes furnished with four bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms, a landscaped rear terrace, and this stylish marble fireplace and mantel.

Thanks to its location in the dining room of a five-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath condo at 25 Eighth Avenue in Park Slope (listed at 5.25 million), this oversized woodburning fireplace makes an ideal backdrop for Christmas dinner—or pretty much any meal no matter the day, month or year.
