The stove is aesthetically beautiful.
This stove is very finicky. It requires a better than average draft (at least .06 inches water column). It takes a long time to get it up to running temperature.
If you don't need the stove mass, get a Jotul 3CB. The 3CB is the best stove I've ever owned. You may want to look for the older two door Castine (moving to the one door model was apparently a mistake).
