Old World Lakehouse

This refined Lake Keowee home, featured in the April 2012 issue of Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Magazine, is a beautiful fusion of French Country and English Arts and Crafts inspired details. Old world stonework and wavy edge siding are topped by a slate roof. Interior finishes include natural timbers, plaster and shiplap walls, and a custom limestone fireplace. Photography by Accent Photography, Greenville, SC.

Rumford fireplaces are a perfect choice for great rooms where ceiling heights are high and the scale of the room is grand.

“The opening should be about as tall as it is wide; the depth of the firebox and fireback should be about the same and about one-third of the fireplace width; the fireback should be plumb and straight; and the throat should be rounded or streamlined to a small, typically 4-inch, throat opening.”

This chart compares a Rumford fireplace (left) to a conventional modern fireplace, in both section and plan views. Notice how the Rumford is shallower, and how air is drawn up the chimney by the Rumford’s rounded throat.

What attracts many people to a Rumford fireplace, besides its aesthetics, is its efficiency in radiating heat into the room and drawing smoke and pollutants out. Rumford fireplaces are taller and shallower than the typical fireplace, and have a narrower chimney opening to increase updraft.
