Product information

The Axon Franklin limestone fireplace is a true masterpiece that will elevate your living space. Meticulously crafted from premium Portuguese limestone, it features a magnificent blend of traditional and contemporary design. Complete with surround, back panel and hearth, the Franklin fireplace is versatile, easy to install and guaranteed to add a touch of elegance to any room.

Artisanal Portuguese limestone

At the heart of the Franklin's beauty is the solid Portuguese limestone used in its construction. Portugal is renowned for its high-quality limestone, favoured by sculptors and masons for centuries for its warm honey tones and exceptional durability. The Franklin brings this artisanal material into the home. Every surface displays the natural texture and depth of colour that only genuine limestone can provide.

Effortless sophistication

The Franklin limestone fireplace makes a sophisticated design statement with clean lines and a delicate fusion of traditional and modern styles. It is crafted to balance harmony and contrast through subtle details like gently rounded edges on the surround and hearth that soften the linearity. The result is a graceful, cohesive look that enhances any living space with an air of understated elegance.

Versatile and easy installation

Despite its sculptural presence, the Franklin fireplace is designed for versatile and easy installation. The surround, back panel and hearth come ready-assembled, providing a seamless built-in look. The back panel is cleverly cut to accommodate inset gas and electric fires from leading manufacturers. So you can enjoy the warmth and ambiance of a real fire or convenient flame-effect fuel options.

Delivery Info

Free 1 Man Delivery – For Full Details Please See Delivery Information

Our "Free Delivery" is a one-man service. The goods will arrive on a lorry that is about the size of a fire engine. (Please let us know in advance if you have restricted access or other local issues that could affect delivery).

The lorry has a tail lift that allows the driver to get the item(s) off the vehicle. The order will be packed and secured onto a pallet and the driver will have a pallet truck. He'll be able to wheel this as close as possible to your property. The pallet truck can only be wheeled over a finished surface so it's not possible to wheel it over a gravelled drive, steps, steep slopes for example. The pallets are normally about 1m wide so this is the minimum width gate they can fit through. Please note that the driver is not insured to unpack or carry the item(s) into your house.

Fitting Kits and Liner Packs might arrive separately by courier delivery on the same day unless specified/requested in advance. An email confirmation will be sent if this is the case.

If the goods are showing 48hr delivery, then this is the quickest time we're able to deliver these items (We do not deliver at weekends). You'll be asked to select a delivery date when purchasing the goods. Please note that if you live offshore these dates do not apply as it will take us slightly longer to get the goods to you and we will contact you directly.

Please note that it is an all-day delivery service which is generally from 9 am – 6 pm Monday to Friday. Delivery Depots, if they have the facility, will text in advance but as the vans do multiple runs a day you might not receive a text until the afternoon if this service is available.

Due to current pallet network pressures mainly due to driver shortages we cannot guarantee delivery on your chosen day but will do our best to communicate this as soon as we are made aware by the carriers.
