Buying a Home with a Fireplace

Hardwired for Gathering 'Round a Fire

 

It's a cold spring in the Washington D.C. area. Last night, temperatures dipped to 40 degrees and daytime highs are expected in the low to mid 60's this week.

Instead of complaining about the cold, which I've done enough already, we are gathering around the fireplace. 

When I was a first time home buyer, a fireplace was on my "must have" for home list

At the time, I couldn't explain why I had to have a fireplace. It was more of an emotional rather than a logical reason. I remember telling my exclusive buyer agent about the fireplace, he just smiled. A man of few words, he adapted our home search to include homes with fireplaces and asked no questions.

Despite the recent trend toward banning fireplaces, many homes for sale in Virginia, Maryland and Washington D.C. were built with living room fireplaces. Home buyers always have the option of  gas or electric fireplaces as alternatives to the old school wood burning fireplaces. 

Early Humans Gathered around Fire just like we do Today

Research in Scientific American shows fire helped shape our social interactions and cultural traditions. So it makes perfect sense to want a fireplace in your home whether it's wood burning, electric or gas.

I don't know if humans are hardwired to gather around a fire. I do know if a fireplace is on your "must have" list, I'm not going to ask you why.
