Can I add a fireplace if the only exterior wall is the picture window?

Purchasing this cottage - I want to take the mural down and add a fireplace but the wall is not exterior. Other side of wall is small office. Any suggestions?

There are some freestanding electric fireplaces and ventless gas units. I am not fond of the ventless as the units use your home in which to vent, but they are sold and used regularly.

Seems to be enough room for a corner FP, but would cover part of that nice mural.

Thanks for your ideas. I'm not particularly fond of electric fireplaces - just don't have the same appeal. The corner fireplace is a great option, of course my ideas for decorating would have to change a bit, but that's ok. The mural will be coming down - it's wallpaper and just doesn't fit my idea of "cottage." Thanks for taking the time to respond....

I purchased the house listed above (room with mural) and am including pictures of how I decorated the living room. Please, any comments or suggestions. I really love this house and hope my decorating suits the home. Any advise is greatly appreciated....Lisa
