.... The only thing is that the piano really needs to be refinished - the back part of it is still quite nice, but around the keyboard needs work.
I know you've already passed on this piano, but it struck me as a bit ironic that you were concerned that the piano would need some refinishing, when I am usually fretting about the exact opposite. My piano, an 1887 rebuilt Knabe, finished in Brazilian Rosewood, has such an exquisite finish that I keep it covered all the time and won't let anyone touch it. The refinishing work alone on the piano cost me a fortune, but it is beautiful, and I've seen nothing like it from this past century. Anyway, it made me laugh, because I was actually sitting and pouting about missing the days where I didn't care about the finish on my old Baldwin SF (7') that I grew up with. It's dingey old finish and scratches weren't lovely to look at, but I didin't feel like I needed to dress for the occasion to play it, and I never kept it covered.
Oh well, the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence, I guess.
