It’s fall, y’all: The leaves are starting to turn, the weather has gotten perceptibly cooler, and if you’re anything like us, you’ve already gotten all of your cardigans out of storage. Cooler weather also makes us think of fireplaces, one of those apartment amenities that you never really think about until there’s a chill in the air and suddenly nothing seems nicer than curling up with a book in front of a roaring fire. (Maybe that’s just us.) In any case, plenty of New York City apartments have the vestiges of them—elaborate mantles that have been repurposed as decorative elements, or cut-outs in exposed brick walls—but there are also plenty of units where you’ll find real, honest-to-god wood-burning (or, less impressively, gas) fireplaces. Take a look at some of our favorites that recently hit the market.
This 19th-century home faces picturesque Stuyvesant Square Park (which may explain its $15 million price tag), and has five bedrooms over nearly 6,500 square feet of space. It also has five fireplaces, including one with beautiful Art Deco ornamentation that’s in the dining room, near a winding staircase. And just in case the park being nearby isn’t enough for you, there’s a garden off the first floor.
