6 Homes with Spectacular Bespoke Fireplaces

Luxury Defined spotlights a collection of properties with designer fireplaces and antique hearths


There was a time when luxury living meant bringing the fire indoors, to a cave with a natural chimney. Fire cooked the food, brought light and warmth into the home—and it kept away the predators. Since the advent of lintel, post and roof, the fireplace has evolved into a highly decorative and symbolic architectural form that has warmed ancient castles, royal palaces, and stately homes. With the coming of eco-friendly and cutting-edge technology, today’s fireplaces blend artistry and innovation. Whatever its style, be it an intricate stone-carved gothic masterpiece or a high-tech showpiece with clean, bio-fueled flames, a fireplace brings comfort and grandeur to any hearth and home. Here are six homes with fireplaces to warm the body and soul.
