Kitchen Vent Installation

I am looking to buy a home and I have selected a home where I like everything except one which I want to discuss here.

There is a microwave with a vent filter on top of the gas range, but the vent does not do anything (there are no pipes). This is a 2 storey, so the bedroom is above the kitchen. There is a sunroom behind the kitchen as well.

My question - I definitely need a kitchen vent. My concern is if its do-able and practically feasible to install one. The realtor and a friend said it would look ugly if its goes through the sunroom. If feasible, then how much would it cost me to rough in a vent exhaust to this microwave? This would not be a DIY for me. Its in Winnipeg. Please make assumptions, I just need a ballpark rounded to the nearest $500, so that I can make an offer accordingly.
