Hot properties with the fireplaces to prove it Paul Beresford reports

Whether used simply for keeping warm, roasting chestnuts or adorning with Christmas stockings a fireplace comes into its own at this time of year.

As well as being practical (who said roasting chestnuts wasn’t?) they are also a fantastic focal point for any living space.

This Grade II listed six bedroom house in Ongar boasts not one but two working fireplaces with a Victorian cast iron one in the ground floor reception room and brick built fireplace with log burning stove in the kitchen. Add to this the property’s stable door and wealth of wooden beams and the former coach house, which dates back to 1750, it exudes cosiness and charm.

Longbeam Cottage in the village of Blackmore is equally as warm and welcoming with a beautiful open brick fireplace with wood burner to greet visitors in the open plan reception room. The reading room that leads off this space is perfect for unwinding with a good book and glass of wine and there is also a formal dining room, conservatory and study to the first floor.

An Inglenook style fireplace features in the aptly named ‘snug’ of this three bedroom link detached house in Margaretting. The room also includes timber flooring, beams and exposed brickwork. Elsewhere, the period property features a Victoriana bathroom, bespoke kitchen and 200 ft cottage style garden.
