It’s grey, rainy and miserable – we’re well and truly in the depths of winter.

If you’ve run out of blankets and the second hand warmth of your laptop isn’t cutting it, fan your home fantasies with these five fireplace offerings.

  1. Reeler House, Turramurra, NSW

    Winter warmer: Five fireplace offerings

    The Turramurra house designed by Ian Reeler features a stellar fireplace surrounded by a glass prism. You’ll have a perfect view of the forest as you warm yourself by the fire, all while perched on that mid-century modernist icon, the Eames lounge chair. Reeler House, built in 1985, is set over 10 floors and was named the 1986 Home Beautiful Home of the Year.

  2. Kaloon Park, Flinders, VIC

    Another fireplace with a view comes from a home on the Mornington Peninsula. After a swim in the pool, you could thaw out by the central stone fireplace, overlooking the Bass Strait. Kaloon Park has five bedrooms and three bathrooms, with three living spaces and a separate private office. The home is on the market for $3.75 million.

  3. Hollander House, Newport, NSW

    Hollander House’s fireplace and chimney is much like all its other features – perfectly integrated with the rest of the house. The hand formed ferro-cement house designed by David Hollander and completed in 1971 follows the contours of the surrounding land. The organic three bedroom home also comes with an impressive outdoor fireplace with a freestanding chimney, so your winter garden party won’t be smoked out.

  4. 3518 Point Nepean Road Sorrento, VIC

    Speaking of garden parties, this huge freestanding fireplace should suffice. But if wild weather interrupts, you can always duck inside and gather around the wide sandstone fireplace.

    Designed by Nicholas Day, this four bedroom, three bathroom cliff-side home has a tennis court, a pool, direct beach  access and a private boat shed.

  5. 14 Ward Avenue Caulfield North, VIC

    Winter warmer: Five fireplace offerings

    For those who prefer the suburbs to the seaside, there’s 14 Ward Avenue. The Caulfield house, decked out in enough chrome and white leather to make Patrick Bateman feel at home, extends its hard contemporary style to the fireplaces, which are far from the organic offerings above. The pebble-filled gas fireplaces, warm despite their cold appearance, are dotted all over the home – there’s even one in the bathroom.
