Santa Will Have Plenty of Fireplace Choices in Tarrant County

The fireplace at 13809 Green Elm Road is a direct vent — so there’s no chimney for Santa to come down.

How does he do it?

How is Santa not only able to deliver toys to all the good little girls and boys of the world, but how does he manage to get down the chimney? I have so many questions for Santa. Does he have a favorite type of fireplace?  What about a direct-vent fireplace? How does he handle homes with no fireplace?

Reviewing the homes of Tarrant County Tuesday from 2018, I wanted to share some of the vast options that jolly old St. Nick will have in a few short weeks.

While a tall flue , the actual fire box might be a tight squeeze for St. Nick at 312 Verna Trail

The Double-Decker Fireplace

They’re not as common in new construction as they were 10 to 20 years ago.  The double-decker fireplace can be very appealing and eye-catching in a large room.

Will Santa be confused as the fireplace at 2201 Hidden Creek Road seems to have two mantels?

It seems the larger the room, the higher the fireplace should go. Also, glass above the fireplace seems to be a favorite for many of the 2018 Tarrant County Tuesday homes.

4657 Benevete Court has soaring ceilings in the living room — the fireplace fit perfectly.

The Outdoor Fireplace

Some homes that Santa visits might not have an indoor fireplace.  If there is an outdoor fireplace, does he go down that chimney, or does he just leave the outdoor fireplace alone?

An outdoor fireplace like this one at 5205 Caliza Court might be perfect for Texas winters — but not perfect for Santa’s visit.

I think I know the answer to this, but I’d still like to ask him: What is Santa’s view on the outdoor fire pit?  Is that still something that he would like to see milk and cookies next to, or does he just ignore it and put that house on the Naughty List the next year?

Is Santa a friend or foe of the outdoor fire pit as shown at 203 Links Court?

Surely Santa is not particular about the materials of the outdoor fireplace.  Mostly featured with rock or stone exteriors, hopefully that wouldn’t snag Santa’s large coat or bag of goodies.

The dry stack look with stone is very popular for the facade of the outdoor fireplace. Hopefully Santa’s OK with that as seen at 4225 Ranier Court.

The Multi-Colored Fireplace

There is a rumor going around that Santa might be color blind.  Whether it’s true or not, he’ll certainly see these bright colors in-and-around the fireplace.

While the fireplace and mantel are traditional, the wall color of 4928 Bryce Avenue might surprise Santa.

Color blind or not, Santa won’t have any difficulty finding the fireplace at 2718 Cockrell Avenue.

And what will he do when he comes down the chimney at 808 South Lamar?  The festive and colorful fireplace is tiled inside the fire box and the hearth surround.

I’d wager that Santa won’t be squeezing anything down this brightly colored (but smallish) fireplace

What about the all white fireplace?  Might Santa be confused and get off schedule while he’s looking around?  What if there is no mantel?!  Oh my goodness this could be a total catastrophe for our favorite bowl full of jelly …

Yes it’s hip, modern and sleek – but where do the stockings hang with care at 1105 Knoll Crest?

YIKES! The all-white fireplace, surround, and hearth, PLUS no mantel … poor Santa. Good luck at 4013 Clayton Road.

These are all questions that keep your Bowtie Realtor up at night.  But rest assured, whether it’s tall or short, square or round, colorful or plain, Santa knows who is naughty or nice, and I have no doubt that he’ll be visiting all the homes featured in Tarrant County Tuesday for 2018.

And to all a good night.
