We’ve just been through a record-breaking deep freeze, and while that’s not ideal you don’t have to leave Chicago to feel the heat again. We’ve rounded up five cozy homes with fireplaces that speak to every kind of style.

These homes feature luxe, wild, cozy, and classic fireplaces. Of course, those million dollar mansions have beautiful mantels, but we found a perfect midcentury modern fireplace in a home that’s just $130,000 too.

No decorative fireplaces here—everything is either gas or wood burning. We’ve got to stay toasty right? If your dream home has a fireplace, find some inspiration below.

First up is a beautiful gut rehab in Lakeview that isn’t even on the market yet. The charming home, which will be listed at $1,325,000 by the end of February, has a true city fireplace. The mantel is made of vintage Chicago bricks placed in a beautiful herringbone pattern.

West Town

First up is this funky, colorful loft space has a dramatic fireplace that fits the eclectic vibes. Normally we wouldn’t look twice at a tile-covered mantel, but it works here. This West Town home listed for $600,000 has already found a buyer, which is no surprise as the light-filled layout is one-of-a-kind.

Over in suburban Edgebrook, this unique home with wirey metal sculptures, lots of marble and a grand, stone fireplace. The seriously massive, raw-cut mantel overtakes an entire corner of the open living room. It’s listed for $659,000.

Washington Heights

The grand finale: three fireplaces in one place.

The rooftop deck has a grill, bar top seating, a tv hookup, a concrete fire pit underneath a pergola, and panoramic views.
