Majestic Fireplace with Unprecedented Architecture!

This elaborate fireplace and chimney was made with our New England Fieldstone Ledgestone Building Veneer. This fieldstone is cut and split creating a beautiful split-face stone veneer. The tight mortarless joints create a striking modern look. The use of bluestone and natural wood accents really brings out the uniqueness of the project.


Custom built-in cabinets that span the height of the room were added to display books and collectibles. The fireplace has an obelisk form, as it tapers in from both sides as well as the front and back. A majestic design that adds depth and strength to the room.

With high ceilings and detailed architecture, this project is sure to turn heads. It is a grand focal point that will be the topic of conversation as people gather around the fireplace for warmth and conversation.

This project was completed by a true mason and artisan:

The Versatility of New England Fieldstone

Our New England Fieldstone is available for many different uses and in many different ways; Thin Veneer, Building Veneer, Wallstone, and Flagging just to name a few. Here, our New England Fieldstone Round Building Veneer was used to create these grand walls at a private residence in Massachusetts. You can see that tiers were used to add a little depth and architecture to the project.

Long stretches and elevation changes break up and add more character to this impressive structure. Thousands of ton of New England Fieldstone make up this unique system of walls. Clean lines and attention to detail make for a beautiful finished project.

Sleek curvatures and columns accent the entrance to the property. The even lines continue seamlessly throughout the entire project. Each stone was hand selected to fit perfectly just like a piece of a puzzle.
