Another rustic borrow for this dream city house would be a modern wood-burning stove. There would be an airy modern extension at the back of the house, where this sleek, contemporary design on a concrete plinth would fit right in and provide a stylish contrast to the home’s period detailing elsewhere. All the other relevant rooms would have original fireplaces.Tour a Victorian terrace in London that’s been totally transformed

There are two wood-burning stoves in the house. The owner brought this one from her previous house. ‘It’s French and was designed to be built into a false chimney breast. It produces a lot of heat, so it can deal with a bigger space,’ Barclay says.‘The owner likes the industrial look, so rather than having it concealed, she wanted it all on view, but she didn’t want kilns or other paraphernalia. The idea was to enjoy the house in the setting it’s in, and not focus on its furniture or fixtures.’The fireplace sits on a concrete plinth, which acts as a heat sink: the concrete absorbs the heat when the fireplace is on, and keeps the warmth going for longer after the stove has gone out.Fireplace, Brisach. All furniture, homeowner’s own.
