Fireplaces can easily make your home an instant hit, or total miss. When done right, they can become the focal point of your living room (or any room, for that matter), so a great design is key. Whatever your style is, whether it be modern, traditional, or even minimal, there is is a style for everyone that will make your home feel cozy and homey.

And while fireplaces are now more commonly the grand centerpiece of your hygge-inspired dream home, it was only a couple hundred years ago that it was solely used as the central heat source in a house. Now, fireplaces can be found in multiple rooms in your home and contribute much more than just heat.

On the other hand, not every homeowner is lucky enough to have a fireplace, especially here in Southern California. Granted, we typically don’t have much use for them, but we do believe they can be an advantage when it comes to selling or buying a home, thanks to their desirable function and aesthetic.

If you’re a fan of cooler weather seasons and all-things-warm-and-cozy, or are just a sucker for astounding architecture and design, you’ll definitely enjoy looking at these listings below!
