Natural gas fireplace with power vent

I am renovating a house which is Bi-Level. Converting Oil to Gas. For 1st floor am thinking to add a fire place. I cannot vent it to roof so am thinking to vent with PVC (if possible) to rear directly outside. Seeking some advice as i have never used fireplace
1. Is there a fireplace with natural gas with power vent ?
2. I might be using incorrect term power vent. All i am seeking is that the vent rear the fireplace outside the house with PVC or galvanize
3. Any cheaper options for fireplace suggestion will be great. When i am looking online and some fireplaces are 3-4K which is little bit outside my budget

There are direct vent fireplaces. But nothing vented with PVC I’ve ever heard of.
Avoid ventless fireplaces. They can be very dangerous and are not suitable for space heating.
Why not use your furnace to heat the lower level? A fireplace isn’t the most efficient method to heat the space.

Unfortunately sealed natural gas fireplaces are on the pricey side starting around $1500. They can direct vent outside using coaxial/power vent ducting. It has a fresh air in and exhaust out section. Nothing that I'm aware of that uses PVC.
