Five luxurious North Texas fireplaces that will knock your stockings off this holiday season

Written by Desmond

December 18, 2021

These fireplaces have us dreaming of cool, cozy Christmases. Despite the unseasonably warm temperatures this week, we’d be tempted to turn on the fire and settle into a chair next to one of these five luxury fireplaces.

Perhaps you’re wondering how elaborate, special or fancy a fireplace could be? It is, after all, a vehicle to convey heat in its most simple form. Well, these D-FW luxury homes demonstrate that a fireplace can be eye-catching and elaborate while keeping a room cozy and warm.

Read on for a Posh Properties look at fireplaces adorned with gold and amethyst, historic designs and classically-styled rooms that we’ve presented in our spotligted homes from this year.

This new construction in University Park is in the works and the design is the dream of the owner. On the market for $37,500,000, the home has six bedrooms, eight full bathrooms and three half-bathrooms. Plus, you’ll find a home theater, a wellness and exercise area and a basement complete with a catering kitchen. The home has luxury materials throughout, but the fireplace in the library is important to note. The fireplace surround is made of a striking purple amethyst.

Take a look at the inside of the house and see what it looks like under construction.

Situated on Swiss Avenue, this historic home has old-world appeal and many of the original design elements have been preserved. That includes a fireplace adorned with the original Rookwood tiles. There are also leaded glass windows and light fixtures original to the home. The home has four bedrooms, three bathrooms and one half-bathroom. And here’s a bonus fireplace to note: the detached garage has an office above that was inspired by Winston Churchill’s country home, Chartwell. A fireplace on one wall of the office offers a cozy feel to this book-filled space.

This Colleyville home has a classically styled design feel and an office complete with wood-paneled walls and a fireplace. The home is 9,541 square feet with four bedrooms, six bathrooms and one half-bathroom. In addition to that fireplace in the study, you’ll also find a fireplace in the main living room, a living area attached to the primary suite, in the game room and in the outdoor covered loggia.

The home sits on approximately 10 acres and has a greenhouse. Take a look.

The owners of this Dallas home designed it to reflect their memories. The couple loves traveling and history, and many of the design elements reflect a bygone era, like the design of the front door or painted tile designs. The home also has two 300-year-old fireplaces from Belgium, plus a few more fireplaces throughout. Imagine cozying up in this historic-feeling home with a historic novel. The home has six bedrooms, seven bathrooms and one half-bathroom.

Check out all of the history-inspired design elements.

This Dallas condo has a blue-hued design throughout and one striking detail on the fireplace: there’s 18-karat gold leaf in the fireplace surround. The condo has two bedrooms, two bathrooms and one half-bathroom in its 1,651 square feet. It’s part of the Plaza at Turtle Creek residences. The home has luxury elements throughout, like wallpapers and fabrics used in the design.
