It's large, the real estate agent and the home inspector both said something about how large it is. Would there be an easy and clean* way to cut some of this off to gain a little more floor space?

*clean as in it doesn't look really bad afterwords.

This is the only picture I have right now, currently there is a child thing around it so it looks larger but it actually sits back a little more.

There is a min space needed in front & to the sides of a wood stove/fireplace as non-combustible

What do you have now?
Yeah, 18" from anything combustible is what I've been told. I haven't measured but it has to be much further than that.

I thought it was 24" in front
Sides & back depend upon the stove
My stove has a heat shield which allowed me to install closer at the last house. Plus the walls were brick, with an air space to the drywall
