Putting an open fireplace into a chimney breast - is this a mad idea?

We are currently renovating our first house! As you can see on the floorplan, there is a chimney breast in between the front and back bedrooms (bricked up and plastered over on both sides). I thought it would be cool to add a fireplace to the back bedroom (this will be my daughter's room and I want to make it basically a built-in doll's house!)
My partner agrees that this would look good and add a feature to the room but he thinks it will be really expensive and difficult to do. Does anyone have any idea if he is right? We have a plasterer coming in a few weeks anyway as we have had a rewire so if we are going to do this now would be the time!
