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
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
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.
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
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.
