Limestone Hearths

The hearth of your home

Since Georgian and Victorian times, fireplaces have traditionally included a mantle, a surround and a hearth. As well as providing a focal point for your room, the hearth’s role was also to protect you, catching any sparks or embers that might escape from the open fire.

Originally used for heating and cooking, the hearth has evolved into a beautiful decorative feature, bringing people together round a fire, sharing warmth and light and conversation.

Attractive yet durable

When you’re thinking about the right kind of material for your hearth, remember that it will need to be durable as well as aesthetically pleasing. It has a role to play in your home and will have to cope with logs, coal buckets, pokers and other fireside accessories on a regular basis. Make sure you choose a material that’s beautiful to look at as well as giving robust performance.

A versatile choice for every home

Limestone hearths enhance every fireplace – all individually made to order by our master stonemasons, cut to your exact specifications and created from locally quarried limestone, they’re suitable for both open fires and wood burners. The cool sleek lines of limestone harmonise beautifully with contemporary décor so they’re a popular choice for modern homes – and yet they have that wonderful ability to seamlessly integrate with more traditional settings, period properties and country cottages.

As with all natural stone products, limestone hearths speak of permanence, resilience and quality, giving your room timeless appeal and welcoming friends, family and guests year after year.
