Bath stone fireplace for a Victorian Luxury Home in the Cotswolds.
Pinckney Green Stoneworks (PGS) was recently appointed by interior design company, N V Design UK Ltd.
“We were asked to create and install two Bath limestone fireplaces for a large detached, Victorian property in the Cotswolds. The project also involved supplyingfire baskets and 100sq metres of engineered oak floorboards.” PGS
Firstly, N V Design asked Pinckney Green to replicate the design of an original Victorian stone fireplace situated at the end of the large 70sq metre drawing room. This impressive second fireplace was carved in Bath stone to match the serene decor of the room and compliment its classic design and soft cream colour. It helped in adding continuity and grandeur to the look and feel of this elegant room. We also provided 300mm wide, engineered oak floorboards for the Drawing Room and these extra wide boards helped tie together the traditional style of the room.
PGS also carved a Bath stone fireplace for the dining room and office in a more formal style, with strong classical lines, reflecting the traditional style of the rooms built-in wooden book cases. We also lined the fire chamber in limestone, provided a polished steel fire basket, installed a Bath stone hearth as well as performing smoke tests for safety.
“We chose Pinckney Green as we’d worked together previously and I value the professional working relationship we’ve established. I was impressed that PGS had the masonry skills needed to replicate original stone fireplace designs and could provide both the Bath stone fireplaces and extra wide wooden flooring we required within our tight deadlines.” Nadira Van De Grift at NV Design UK Ltd.
