NEW this season are two new gas versions of the Nestor Martin hearth stoves.

These retro-look heating stoves with their distinctive avant-garde styling already hold an industry award for innovation.

The new 8kw output gas stoves are available in two different stylings — an angular model with a three-sided glass panelled door, and a bow-fronted model with a panoramic glass panelled door.

Both styles of hearth stove are beautifully crafted and engineered in cast iron, with a choice of door surround finishes of nickel plate, graphite black, slate grey, green or blue enamel.

The Nestor Martin hearth stoves have already found favour for use in the stylish minimalist interiors of warehouse and loft apartments, barn conversions, and self-build and architect-designed homes.

Making a design statement in any interior setting, these new models of hearth stove have the convenience of running on natural gas or LPG and yet feature Euroheat's characteristic coal fire effect of flickering flames visible through their curved glass doors from almost anywhere in the room.

The running and maintenance of the gas hearth stoves is simplicity itself.

They have battery spark ignition for easy lighting and thermostatic control allows the stove to be set for any given room temperature, while a natural over-ride can quickly restore the flame effect when required.

Carrying a ten-year warranty, retail prices of the gas hearth stoves start at £1,345 including VAT and full details of the range are available from Euroheat, Unit 2, Court Farm Business Park, Bishops Frome, Worcestershire WR6 5AY. Telephone 01885 491100.
