    Is any of it actually attached to the wall, or is it just attached to the counter top?

      yes it is attached to the wall. Somehow the part of what wall treatment would be good to use didn’t show up. The wall definitely will be damaged if removed.

    I would try taking the hutch apart if that is possible to decrease the mass and see if that would make the damage a bit less with less weight. There may be no way to take it down without some damage. You may just be able to repair the wall and see if you can find something similar to what is on the wall that you can use once it is repaired. If the hutch is still in usable shape once it is removed, you could repurpose it as an entertainment center or a small bar or something.

    We just removed one from the house we just bought. Look for the screws holding up the top. If you are careful, the damage to wall will be minimal, just use a little joint compound to fill holes and any scratches and paint over it. Removes shelves first and any molding that is attached to it.

    Also remove the doors before taking it down

    Wall treatment after removing, could just fit in a new piece of gyproc and repaint, or you could do a shiplap wall very simple and very popular right now as is a pallet wood for walls, depends on the look you are wanting or what is in the rest of the home. Good luck and have fun.
