That would be an easy fix, just remove it.

I think 90% of the problem would disappear if you are able to get rid of that very busy stone face. But I also like your comp #3.

BTW; "good bones" would be referring to the structure of the house more than the look of it, and it should be your primary concern. Unfortunately, there is little we can offer in determining the structural integrity from this distance.
