    From pensive thought to socked feet-toasting, opening presents bought or chestnuts roasting, fireplaces are the focal point of any home from fall through the holidays. Even in the age of endless technological distraction, these crackling-flame vessels stoke our imagination, inviting us to gather around and enjoy good times in better company.

    Here are some of the most incredible examples from our current inventory:

    DOBBS FERRY | 85 Myrtle Avenue
    The scale of this river towns Arts & Crafts cannot be understated, and its fireplaces are no exception. Of the eight throughout the home, the inglenook in the den is the undisputed showstopper, sporting an iron hood and a duo of milled hardwood benches—stained glass and burled oak paneling complete the ambiance.

    ARMONK | 9 Tallwoods Road
    Modernist flame features, like those by Pound Ridge-based Wittus, are all the rage these days in contemporary design circles, but this incendiary specimen is an absolute original. It's a focal point in this classic Mid-Century Modern residence, one of a cluster designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill's Arthur Witthoefft in the 1950s.

    GREENWICH | 373 Taconic Road
    Adjacent to Stanwich Club grounds, this luxurious estate boasts a double-height family room with this soaring fieldstone fireplace, not to mention others throughout and three just outside. For a resort-like compound in one of Connecticut's most storied cities, one would expect nothing less.

    SCARSDALE 21 Sherbrooke Road
    Anyone who accuses architectural concrete of being "cold" clearly hasn't seen this sleek masterpiece in Scarsdale, which anchors a soaring light-filled great room. It's the perfect balance of modernity and tradition, the M.O. that defines the very sensibility of this unique custom home.

    MILLBROOK | 127 Brush Hill Road
    PSA: Hunt Country doesn't mean you can go full on Elmer Fudd out the front door, but the two-story fireplace at this Clove Valley log lodge, which sits atop 30 acres in Millbrook's storied equestrian territory, is a perfect complement to your trophy mounts. With a gym, sauna, wine cellar and pizza oven, it's practically your private National Parks resort.
