It’s that time of year again. It’s growing colder, the days are getting shorter, and winter jackets are coming out of the wardrobe. There’s lots to love about winter, but it’s also good to leave the cold behind now and then. But where are the best places to keep warm? We have the answer! Here are a variety of unique properties with fireplaces – just what you need at this time of year!
A charming home – modern, with plenty of character
From the outside, this cottage just oozes charm. So it’s no wonder it’s being advertised as a love nest. It offers plenty of space, with 4.5 rooms spread over 120 square metres. And, while spacious, this home could hardly get any cosier. The ornate brickwork walls and wooden detailing lend it a particularly rustic feel, which suits its surroundings. The ‘traute Heim’ (home sweet home) motto above the entrance is very apt for this property, which sits at the foot of a vineyard.
Beautiful penthouse apartment with a stunning view
This spacious apartment on the edge of St. Moritz is surrounded by lakes and mountains. With three bedrooms, a kitchen with stunning views, an open-plan dining room, and a fabulous balcony, this apartment really is a dream property. The cosiness of this apartment is further enhanced by the lovely fireplace, which adds extra warmth. Simply gorgeous!
Luxurious chalet in the Swiss Alps
Nestled in the heart of the Swiss Alps, this luxurious property has just about everything you could want. Flooded with natural light, this chalet has two balconies, three natural stones terraces, a garden, and no fewer than 6.5 rooms! The living room extends across three levels, and has been designed with loving attention to detail. Built to Minergie standards, this villa will keep you warm and cosy all winter, thanks to its fabulous fireplace.
Exclusive family home – luxury guaranteed
This property is truly impressive. As soon as you enter the spacious entrance hall, you are greeted by panoramic views across the whole valley. And the striking features of this property seem almost endless. As well as fabulous views, the purchase price includes walk-in wardrobes, a cinema room, and a gym fitted with top-of-the-range equipment. Not forgetting the ski storage room and own wellness area with sauna. The property also boasts a 400 square-metre heated garage with space for 24 cars. For those who prefer to travel by helicopter, there is a heliport on the roof.
A piece of history
This early 20th-century villa is located near central Lausanne. The property boasts an extensive garden, with breathtaking views across Lake Geneva. With high ceilings and parquet floors, the rooms are elegant and grand, and feel like a real piece of history. A new fitted kitchen and modern bathroom add a contemporary feel and provide modern comforts. With its own cellar, this property will have a special appeal for wine connoisseurs. And, in addition to all these features, there is one further highlight: a private library – with a fireplace. Does anything beat curling up by the fire with a book when it’s snowing outside?
