Straight From The Hearth: 4 Homes With Cozy Fireplaces

Each of these four eye-catching fireplaces—one an ornate mantel carved from stone, another a sleek contemporary piece clad in dazzling black tile—contribute warmth and style to their singular settings.

Classic, Comfortable Manhattan Haven

Diana Devendorf Rice | Sotheby’s International Realty – East Side Manhattan Brokerage

Overlooking the East River and the terraces of the iconic River House, this renovated Art Deco cooperative residence is a classically elegant aerie on one of Manhattan’s most distinguished tree-lined cul-de-sacs. In addition to a kitchen with custom gray and white cabinets and Miele appliances, it includes two bedrooms—one of which easily functions as an office or library—and a light-filled living room with Tudor-style leaded-glass windows and a stately carved stone wood-burning fireplace.

Estancia del Rio

Gary Bobolsky | Sotheby’s International Realty – Santa Fe Brokerage

Northwest of Santa Fe along the Rio Chama, this remarkably private 1,000-acre property—two separately deeded 500-acre tracts with a private well—enjoys vast views of the glorious scenery memorialized in the works of Georgia O’Keeffe. Landscaped stone paths lead from a home offering a formal stone-walled living and dining space with an oversized arched fireplace to the sleeping casitas. A large soaking pool sits just below the outdoor living spaces, and the ranch enjoys access to the river.

California Contemporary

Robert Radcliffe | Sotheby’s International Realty – Santa Monica – Venice Brokerage

This thoughtfully designed 3,770-square-foot four-bedroom contemporary home allows for the consummate indoor-outdoor California lifestyle. Atop the roof is a deck with 360-degree city views, and the property offers a sauna, an ipe deck, and an additional residence with its own entrance and deck. The open-plan main level consists of a kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances and quartzite countertops, a dining area with a clever interior plant wall, and a welcoming living room with a dazzling custom-tiled fireplace.

Stylish Serenity in Sherman Oaks

John Giddins | Sotheby’s International Realty – Beverly Hills Brokerage

This stylish and serene home on a quiet cul-de-sac in Sherman Oaks is replete with graceful archways, herringbone-patterned white oak floors, and uncommonly elegant finishes. Its 3,247-square-foot floor plan offers four bedrooms, while the generous backyard features dining and sitting areas, a firepit, a spa, and a built-in grill. Adjoining in an ideal flow for entertaining are a stylish living room, an inviting family room, a gourmet kitchen, and a formal dining room with doors to the backyard and a striking Calacatta marble fireplace.
