The Passage

Before Siemasko + Verbridge got their hands on this house, it was a convoluted maze of small rooms and skinny hallways. The renovation made sense of the layout, and took full advantage of the captivating ocean views. The result is a harmonious blend of contemporary style with classic and sophisticated elements. The “empty nest” home is transformed into a welcoming sanctuary for the extended family of kids and grandkids.

Thanks for your question! You would have to contact a local retailer that carries the wood stove to get an estimate on the cost. The link below should lead you to the "where to buy..." page and you select your location and they will give you a company close to you that carries this product.

I am intrigued by the fact that this does not seem to have some sort of "firewall" behind it. I am trying to find a way to not use brick or stone behind our stove, but still be up to code. Can you comment on how you did this? Thanks! It's beautiful!

Thanks for your question! The floor is actually a large stone hearth, which is black absolute granite.

chairs are made by Giorgetti, an Italian company. Cost about 2200 Euros in Europe, not sure how much they cost in the US.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This cozy sitting area is at the end of the kitchen. "Originally we had a larger fireplace planned, but after a Scandinavian trip, the couple came back with a smaller woodstove like this one in mind," says Verbridge. "It throws out lots of heat; it can heat the entire kitchen," she says. This is one of the cozy spots the wife enjoys curling up in.If you're on the fence about the aesthetics of a television in the kitchen, note this idea: One is recessed into the wall behind the gray painting. Woodstove: Edofocus, Focus
4. Have chimneys cleaned before you light that first autumn fire. Residue buildup and blockages in chimneys are a common cause of house fires, so be sure to have a pro take a look before sparking that first flame.
Pro: Lower long-term heating costs. According to Popular Mechanics, the average annual fuel cost to keep a woodstove going is nearly half the price of oil and still slightly less than natural gas. Those able to responsibly harvest their own wood have the potential to save even more.Stove: Edofocus, Focus
Wall mounted. Free up floor space by installing your fireplace unit directly onto the wall. This space puts the perfect spin on yesterday's model. Tip: Don't think just in black — a unit like this in white could be a showstopper.
Wall mounted. Small spaces will love this wall-hugging fireplace. It's a great choice for those who want a fireplace but not the bulkiness. Design tip: Not only is this a great space saver for the living room, but it would work well in a smaller master bedroom, too.
