how far to take this remodel?

We have an 1874 Victorian in Eastern MA. At one point early in its history the house was made into a two family but never officially. We are making it back into a one family but are puzzled how to do this right. The first floor has a large living room, dining room, kitchen, bath, pantry and two bedr...
