On our first viewing I think the Living Room was the room that really sold the house, it has this big bay window that just floods the room with light and gorgeous views all year around (although the garden is a little overgrown right now).

This is the Living Room before we started work
 As the heating needed some work anyway we decided to remove the two small radiators either side of the bay window since they would be an obstruction when placing furniture.  The one remaining radiator on the opposite wall was no longer sufficient to heat the room by itself so that was replaced that with a larger model which will be hidden by the sofa later.  A really obvious tip would be if you are undertaking any electrical or heating work prepare for mess, a lot of mess.
Once all the under floorboard work was done and the built-in's were removed from the alcoves we were ready to rebuilt the room starting at the top.
Forgive the clothing, it's not my finest outfit.

Next step....Flooring.
