Chimney masonry recessed at floor. Suggestions?

This boiler chimney was constructed with a 3-inch recess where the fieldstone meets the floor. What would be the explanation for this? What would be the correct way to finish (hide or disguise) this? Would any proposed finishes be only for the sides/recesses, or would said proposed finishes continue across the front of the chimney as well (for continuity)? Looking for thoughtful design suggestions.

Also note that the doors to the left side of the chimney (in the third image) have been removed.

Thanks in advance.
