I love this style of fireplace. What is it called? I've seen these gigantic fireplaces in old movies - what style of fireplace is this, and what is it called? Thanks, Sylvie

I'd also like to know the answer to this.
Is a gas log fireplace as efficient as a wood burning or pellet stove for heating a space?
Thank you :)

You most certainly can heat your home with a wood burning or pellet stove and Uncle Sam will give you a tax credit for purchasing one (as long as it meets certain requirements). Here is one of many links:

Chopping your own wood is quite a fitness regimen as well - with a wood burning stove you heat your body twice, when you chop it AND when you burn it!

The downside of woodburning stoves is that you have enough room to store the wood in a dry place.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The range. Traditionally the biggest feature in a Victorian kitchen, the range usually sat within the chimney breast. If you have the room, a woodstove will make your Victorian kitchen cozy and atmospheric. Set it next to your dining table for mealtime warmth and add some cast iron or copper pots and pans for authenticity.

I like a couple things here... There is no bump in the floor to whack your toes on as you pass from the wood level to the brick. I also appreciate that the hearth is large around the stove - this is good for working clearance when operating/loading it. That said, I worry if it makes the overall footprint too large... so perhaps not quite this large of an opening.
