The old linoleum tiles reminded me of the 70's, clearly not authentic to the home... Underneath the tiles were amazing hardwood floors. As you can see the floors were in pristine condition (see "after" photo). They were in desperate need of a deep cleaning, sanding, and re-finishing! We were told that the fireplace was not in "functional and working order". The seller also advised us that there was no damper to close or open the chute. Later we happily surprised to find out that it indeed had a damper and the fire place was in total working order! The living room is quite spacious with high ceilings... After stripping away all the wood paneled walls and linoleum we were finally able to realize its potential! Restoration Hardware, we'll be coming to you soon!
