Hand carved solid Bath stone fire surround - The Melanite

This beautiful fireplace called The Melanite has already been hand carved in a traditional style which would suit many types of homes.

As you can see from the photograph, its perfect for a multi fuel stoves or woodburners to sit nicely within its opening or perhaps a fire basket with a roaring open fire.

This particular surround has been carved to a customers agreed drawing however upon further inspection after carving and with the existing fire removed unfortunately this beautiful fire surround no longer fitted the opening - hence now on a special offer. Brand new and not been fitted.

Each of our fireplaces are unique as the stone is locally sourced and as a natural material will contain some fossiling from the sea bed minerals and creatures and veining dating back to 145 million years ago.

We can offer this design as with all our fireplaces to your own size requirements, but please call or email us first at simplicityfireplaces@gmail.com where we can offer you a personal quotation please do not purchase this fire surround off our website if you require alternative sizes as this has been carved and ready for collection.

The fireplace in the first photo is of our standard size and shows with hearths. We have used this photo to show you the design of the Melanite but the sizes will not be the same.

The other photos are of the fire surround itself. It's a little darker in places as the stone has just been washed down so has some moisture within stone. Happy to send you a free stone sample in the post so you can see colour and texture of this beautiful Bath stone.
