Unlock the entire Houzz

We just bought a house built in 1981. It is a 5500 sq ft. Chateau-style stucco home The very large master bedroom has a fireplace that is approx 10 ft wide and 8 ft tall with carved wood mantle (trying to look 70s Austrian Castle?) and tan marble base. It is shocking. I am sure someone spent an enormous amount of money having it built. We have had to put a lot of $ into the home to make it livable, and are now out of budget. Do we rip it out, or try to make it work somehow, considering the budget is $1000.
