Christmas Homes with Chimneys and Fireplaces for Santa

Christmas Homes with Chimneys and Fireplaces for Santa

At Christmas time there’s nothing better to make spirits bright than being snug and warm in front of a roaring fire. We discover period properties that still have huge chimney stacks and Inglenook fireplaces and newer homes with traditional influences. Not only can they keep the house warm, but they will also be Santa-friendly on Christmas Eve when he comes to deliver presents to the youngest members of the family.

We reveal the top Christmas homes on the market with Fine & Country with chimneys and fireplaces for when Santa Claus comes to town.
