When it comes to New York City real estate, finding a home with a fireplace is hard to do, especially given the ban on wood-burning fireplaces and the astronomical expense of installing a gas unit. But, as indicated in a New York Times real estate listing last week, a luxurious HearthCabinet™ Ventless Fireplace adds major value to a home and lights a fire to attract buyers, without running afoul of NYC codes or costing a fortune for installation.
With the inclusion of a HearthCabinet™ in a gorgeous Brooklyn apartment, The New York Times listing shows that it helped bring the 1-bedroom to a market value of $1,225,000.
Powerhouse broker Leonard Steinberg, President of COMPASS Real Estate in NYC, notes that “When buying a home, we always search for ‘collector qualities’ that add real value: A fireplace is one of those attributes that truly make a house a home.”
Ever since NYC banned new wood-burning fireplaces in 2015 because of concerns about their emissions, city residents have had to seek out alternatives.
Steinberg adds “Now that it is impossible to add a wood-burning fireplace in NYC and extremely tough to install a gas fireplace, this [HearthCabinet™] is an alternative that is simple, easy and as effective.“
For more than a decade, our experienced team of architects and designers has crafted luxury, self-contained, safe fireplaces that require no chimney or connections of any kind. With a HearthCabinet™ Ventless Fireplace, say sayonara to soot and ciao to your chimney.
