It's that time of year again, the time when it's actually cold enough to light a fire in the fireplace! A cozy seat next to a warm, crackling fire is one of the best ways to beat the winter doldrums. Being the bunch of real estate nerds that we are, we wanted to share some of the beautiful, stylish, and lux fireplaces that we've come across this year. Enjoy the eye candy!

An outdoor fireplace can be a wonderful setting for a holiday party, or to hang out with the family. We love the laid-back vibe of the wicker furniture, mixed with the sleek stonework.
