New England Stone Fireplace with Hidden Access Panel
This elegant fireplace has a hidden secret access panel. The Boston Blend Ledgestone was used as fireplace cladding around a gas insert and mounted TV. The problem: homeowners need access to the shut off valve.
The solution: three stones were cemented together but kept unattached to the surface to act as the panel door. The pieces easily pop out when access to the piping is needed. Once the stone door is put back into place it flawlessly blends with the surrounding stones. The result is an amazing beautiful, functional, and easy to use stacked stone fireplace.
