No fireplace?

I just was looking at the pictures again and realized that diagonal floor house has no fireplace.

This isn't a huge deal for us (I've never used a fireplace, and although we are going somewhere cold I am fine to do without), but I wonder if it would really hurt the resale, given that lots of the homes I've seen here have a fireplace.

I will ask the realtor what she thinks, but what do you think? One option would be to install a direct vent gas fireplace, I wonder if one of the 2 or three sided ones could look nice between the living space and dining space in the main room. Otherwise in the so called "family room"?

  1. You could totally add on, gas or wood burning, without having to remodel. In fact, I think they "external" fireplaces look nicer and more modern than a lot of built-in designs. Es' parents have a wood burning one in Oslo that is super sleek and still very functional.
