10 Apartments with *Fireplaces* That Are on the Market Right Now
New Yorkers have come to accept that most apartment amenities are luxuries and not necessities. (It’s tough to justify needing a dishwasher when you cook maybe four times a month.) But with winter just around the corner, we’re unapologetically coveting the coziness of a fireplace—even if said coziness is purely decorative. So with the help of StreetEasy, we’ve curated a list of hearth-equipped rentals at various price points. BYO hot cocoa.
$2,500 and below
2-bedroom in Spuyten Duyvil ($2,500)
If there’s one thing we love as much as a fireplace, it’s a sprawling view of the Hudson River, and this Bronx gem has both. In fact, this fireplace is topped with a giant mirror, so you can see the dreamy view no matter where you are in the living room.
Studio in Park Slope ($2,300)
Wood paneling is having a resurgence and we’re here for it. This 1970s trend is especially appealing when the paneling surrounds a decorative fireplace like it does at this Park Slope alcove studio. Plus, once the snow starts to fall, you’re only half a block away from the magical winter wonderland that is Prospect Park.
$3,000 and below
1-bedroom in Hamilton Heights ($2,500)
If you snag this Hamilton Heights home, please understand that it will be your responsibility to act as the dedicated host for your book club. The brick and wood-surrounded fireplace is the focal point of the living room, which has plenty of space for entertaining. And when the weather warms up, you can move the meetings outside to the private courtyard.
3-bedroom in Glendale ($2,550)
Want a fireplace but not the headaches that can come with an older unit? This newly renovated Queens home features a sleek built-in electric fireplace in addition to other top-of-the-line updates like stainless steel appliances and central air conditioning.

$4,000 and below
2-bedroom in Williamsburg ($3,995)
During the winter months, we know that sunlight is at a premium. That’s why we’re particularly excited about this two-bedroom apartment in Williamsburg: In addition to the charming fireplace, the living room also boasts oversize windows that allow natural light to pour in.
2-bedroom in Central Harlem ($3,500)
What’s better than a fireplace? Two fireplaces, of course! This Harlem duplex boasts a decorative mantel in the living room and a second one off the kitchen, plus plenty of space-saving built-ins. Psst: We’ve got lots of ideas for what to do with them.
Also check out: 2-bedroom in Astoria ($3,500)
$5,000 and below
1-bedroom in the West Village ($4,800)
Yes, we’re here to discuss fireplaces—and this one with its exposed-brick backdrop does not disappoint—but can we talk about this kitchen for a second? That retro fridge and those mint-green shelves are charming enough to sign a lease for this West Village one-bedroom sight unseen.
3-bedroom in Park Slope ($4,100)
This is not a drill: This Park Slope townhouse has a fully functioning wood-burning fireplace and room for an outdoor fire pit. Now, does anyone know where exactly in the city we can buy firewood?
$10,000 and below
4-bedroom in Forest Hills ($6,000)
Another Forest Hills home, another fireplace—but this one couldn’t be more different. This split-duplex penthouse is an architectural masterpiece, with windows and skylights galore, a curved wood staircase and a private elevator. But the pièce de résistance is definitely that Grecian Ornate Fireplace.
5-bedroom in Forest Hills ($10,000)
Every room in this five-bedroom stone palace looks straight out of a storybook, not that it matters because we don’t plan to spend much time beyond the living room. By mixing natural and whitewashed brick, this fireplace has both classic and contemporary vibes.
Eye Candy (over $10K)
3-bedroom in Park Slope ($11,000)
If you’re not already a home-decor influencer, this all-white minimalist townhouse might turn you into one. Now you just need to decide how to spend your time: reading by the wood-burning fireplace, cooking in the airy kitchen or basking in the sun on the private roof deck?
4-bedroom in Soho ($49,000)
What, your apartment doesn’t have a free-standing soaking tub, a gas fireplace, two walk-in closets, heated floors and an outdoor terrace? Time to change that.
