Warming up in Philly: Fireplaces in million-dollar homes

A chill in the air and leaves crunching underfoot means the advent of more than just pumpkin season. It’s also fireplace season (and campfire and fire pit season, but we’ll leave those for another day). These three million-dollar stunners in Philadelphia feature several of the most impressive fireplaces we can find on the market.

2012 Spruce St., Philadelphia 
Monthly taxes: $1,402 
Tell me all about it: Just try to find another home in Philadelphia with more fireplaces than this one. The 1860 home features nine of them: four gas and five wood-burning. They are in nearly every room in the home, including the kitchen. In addition to the fab fireplaces, we also love the custom chef’s kitchen and the mill work and moldings throughout.

149 S. Hancock St., Philadelphia 
Monthly taxes: $949 (with 4.5 years left in the tax abatement) 
Tell me all about it: Who says you have to have a 19th century manse to hold all your fancy marble fireplaces? This 1930 warehouse in Old City was renovated into a spectacular four-bedroom home with a gas fireplace in the living room and another fantastic gas fireplace in the master. Bonus: the roof deck is already wired for gas, water and electric for even more entertaining space.

2129 Delancey St., Philadelphia 
Monthly taxes: $896 
Tell me all about it: Built in 1850, this three-bedroom home on one of the city’s toniest streets features an ornate marble fireplace in the living room. Plus, it is flanked by built-in bookshelves just as the Lord intended. We are also living for the private deck out back and the master suite. Plus, have you ever seen a home with more window seats?
