"leaking house"

Thanks for your response Paul. I'm beginning to
get the idea that this may be exactly what is
going on. I'm still not 100% certain that it's
not coming down from above (perhaps a problem
with the flashing around the chimney).

To help me decide, I had this idea (perhaps a
daft idea), of placing some food coloring in the
water that appears to be ponding around the
fireplace. If the food coloring shows up inside
the house, then I know where it came from. If it
doesn't then I just have to take my best guess.
Of course, I have the carpet up so the coloring
won't damage it if it does get in.

Does this seem like a reasonable test?
