Removing chimney stack (or not)

For reasons of space, I need to put my cooker where a chimney breast currently is in the kitchen.

I can’t remove the chimney breast from both the ground floor and the first floor (and support with gallows brackets in the loft) because it would disrupt a lot of piping on the first floor around the water heater.

With reference to these pictures…

1. How simple/expensive is it to just remove the ground floor chimney breast?
2. Or part of the chimney breast (would be happy to remove all of it up to the picture rail)?
3. Or to “dig out” enough of a recess (across and up) to fit an oven into the existing chimney breast?

Many thanks.
