Stone mantel with double overmantel
in Monfort, Gers
This tall natural limestone fireplace with a double moulded overmantel was made possible by the high ceilings of the space.
The mantel follows the lines of the Gothic style, with a simple lintel, a bevelled corner overmantel, a moulding with arching and a top cornice.
The stone has been aged and patinated to match the colour and appearance of the building stones and the architectural style of this restored old building.
