One of the fantastic restorations made to 11 Dewey Street is the reuse of the original fireplace. The living room and kitchen were gutted and opened up to flow into one another smoothly, but to give the rooms a natural division, the fireplace was untouched, but reworked to offer heat and ambience to both rooms. Now, the massive brick chimney is home to 2 symmetrical, gas fireplace, one as a centerpiece to the living room and the other as a centerpiece to the adjacent kitchen. A creative, successful restoration to say the least.
