Stovax Berkeley Insert Fireplace, Polished with Brompton Rich Oak mantel

Berkeley Fireplace Fronts

Taking its design reference from the Alexandra Cast Iron Insert fireplace, the Berkeley is a cast-iron London front capable of blending effortlessly into a range of interior styles without losing its refined and historic aesthetics. The simple cast iron panel of the Berkeley has been embellished with a sophisticated arched motif around the fireplace opening.

An optional insert panel with either a 16″ W x 22″ H (405 x 560mm) or 22″ W x 22″ H (560 x 560mm) cut-out allows you to use the Berkeley Cast London front with a modern chairbrick fireplace or a choice of Gazco Logic™ and E-Box™ gas fires.

London Cast Fronts

As the Georgian era developed, increasing numbers of the more wealthy landowners started to build or lease ‘town houses’ in London. The fireplace in these homes still retained its place as the focus of the room but was, of necessity, generally smaller than the grand, open chimneys incorporated into the ‘ancestral seat’. Initially, the brick opening of the town house fireplace would contain an elaborate fire basket. Progressively, however, the addition of a cast front which could decrease, hide or improve the look of the opening became a typical feature.

Taking inspiration from period originals, Stovax has produced four masterpieces of casting to exemplify the London style.
