Beautiful two story high limestone fireplace, comprising as main feature in sitting room. Cut stone square pieces set out 6 inches to carry wooden mantle. Showing heart of fireplace, stove, stone pieces carrying mantle, and storage for logs which is set center.
Fireplace was tapered in at head height, then the next section continued straight up to top. This was done in order to reduce its size and also for design purposes. Its important to consider the overall size of such fireplaces, as they generally require a large room to carry them - otherwise they can be imposing. Flag stone ledge runs around base allowing for sitting area to be created.
