Orange, CA — Southern Living, long considered the premier publication for gracious homes and lifestyles, has selected four Lennox Hearth Products (LHP) fireplaces to provide additional warmth and elegance to its 2009 Idea House. Located in the Reynolds Signature Community of Achasta in Dahlonega, Georgia, the residence is open for public tours through October 18.
The 3,700-square-foot mountain retreat features a simple roof line of low intersecting gables that reflect the silhouette of the background terrain, and offers nature-inspired interiors. Designer Mallory Mathison, working with LHP local independent dealer Builder Specialties of Norcross, GA, selected two Dave Lennox Signature™ Collection Crestline™ gas fireplaces for the interior. The spacious, 28-inch-tall opening of the Crestline fireplace offers a large open hearth with outstanding, unobstructed views of the fire in the main living room and the lower-level media room. With buff-colored herringbone brick-pattern interiors and substantial campfire-style logs, the fireplaces are also equipped with classic andirons and freestanding screens that complete the look of timeless beauty.
Two Merit™ Plus Series Outdoor “Dual-Fuel” 36-inch fireplaces — designed to give homeowners the option of having either a traditional wood-burning hearth or outfitting the fireplace with gas logs — were selected for spacious entertaining areas on the upper terrace and main outdoor level. The clean, contemporary look of durable, 304-stainless steel creates an attractive hearth setting that complements the beauty of the panoramic views beyond. Full-featured, detailed brick-pattern fireboxes, stainless steel grates and pull screens add sophistication and splendor to the home’s elegant terrace and main outdoor level, while offering weather resistance for years of outdoor pleasure.
“The Southern Living Idea House is an incredible showcase for Lennox Hearth Products and we’re very pleased to be affiliated with a magazine of this caliber,” said Robert Dischner, director of marketing for LHP. “Thousands of people come to this home to see the best in design and to visualize how they can use our products in their homes. Our industry is continuing to see people investing in outdoor living spaces, so this is an excellent opportunity for homeowners to understand how they might improve their own properties with outdoors hearths.”
