It's officially fall, and that means leaf peeping, sweater weather, and fireplace season is well on its way. A fireplace—even a decorative one—ups the cozy factor of a home, so we searched real rental listings in five (chilly) cities to see what was available. Here's what we found.
Clinton Hill, Brooklyn—$2370
A one bedroom in Brooklyn comes with exposed brick and a non-working fireplace, so add some pillar candles or twinkle lights for that firelight glow. Bonus: the kitchen and bathroom are newly renovated.
Back Bay, Boston—$2100
This Beacon Street studio is basically like living in a castle (but smaller). The Victorian fireplace isn't the only cozy feature in this place: the beams, paneling, and what appears to be German text all add to the ambiance.
Lincoln Park, Chicago—$1550
This one bedroom's brick corner fireplace is wood burning, and comes with a nook underneath to stash some logs. It also has a private balcony for the warmer months.
North Loop, Minneapolis—$1650
This Twin Cities loft features a gas fireplace to warm up the concrete floors and exposed beams. It also comes with garage parking.
