The allure of crackling fire in your Marbella homeDecember 22nd 2015 | by Ginés García
The artistic allure of open fires is recognised by architects, who often incorporate them into their designs in addition to the most up to date central heating systems. The huge range of fireplaces on offer means that there is one available to fit in with any home’s design, whether it is a traditional Andalusian theme or a modern contemporary home focusing on open space and clean lines.
This beautiful five-bedroom villa in El Rosario makes the most of a magnificent fireplace to provide a cosy atmosphere within a spacious home. It brings a classical vibe to what is in reality an up to date house featuring under floor heating, air conditioning, solar panels for hot water, satellite TV, marble floors, automatic irrigation system and electric shutters.
Offering a very modern take on the fireplace theme is this contemporary villa in Los Naranjos close to Los Naranjos Golf. Everything about this home is designed to provide a modern lifestyle and the enclosed fireplace is a central feature that serves to elegantly divide the open plan living space.
Focal point for Puerto Banús penthouse
The joys of an open fire are not restricted to villas—many apartments also feature the romantic appeal of a fireplace. These luxury apartments and penthouses for sale on the second line of Puerto Banús have been imaginatively designed to make the most of the available space. Making use of clean lines, the understated fireplace is still large enough to provide a focal point to the living room—a perfect place for the family to gather round on those cool winter evenings.
You can’t beat an open fire when it comes to a winter-warming sensation. Cuddling up in front of the crackling flames has a strong aesthetic appeal redolent of days gone by that makes the idea of a glorious fireplace remain an enticing one for many people.
Even in this day of under floor heating and sophisticated home automation systems that keep temperatures precisely controlled at a comfortable level, there is something supremely satisfying about the image of flickering flames that goes to the depths of our very souls.
Wood burning fires are also relatively good for the environment by being carbon neutral—the CO2 they emit by burning the logs has been previously absorbed from the atmosphere by the trees—and in Andalucía there is no shortage of fuel with the millions of olive trees that are so important to the agrarian economy and in need of regular pruning.
