It's tough to beat the warmth – literal and figurative – of your own fireplace. Something about being able to wear your pajamas while you bask before your own hearth makes the logs crackle a little more cozily and the fire burn a little brighter. These homes feature envy-inducing fireplaces in a variety of settings with price tags to match.

I've got my love to keep me warm: Talk about a dramatic great room. The fireplace in this four-bedroom Bucks County manse is two stories tall and flanked by huge windows. The stone fireplace was actually built from the same stones that once made up fences on the property, dating all the way back to the Civil War.

I've got my love to keep me warm: Just try to pick your favorite fireplace in this 10,400-square-foot Newtown Square home. There's the one in the formal dining room, the one in the living room, the one in the study, the one in the breakfast room, and the one in the master suite. We're partial to carvings in the master suite, adjacent to a private balcony that overlooks the horse pastures on the property.

I've got my love to keep me warm: We love the elegant living room fireplace at seven-bedroom Belgrave Farm. As much as we love the fireplaces, though (there's another one in the dining room), our favorite spot in this 1724 farmhouse is the library staircase. What better to pair with a fine fireplace than something good to read there?
