It definitely has a unique feel, I've always felt this way. The color palette and design is retro weird and in its own way very eerie. REmake is very much just scary in comparison, but in a more traditional sense. I love both for their unique settings.I personally prefer the mansion in re1 over remake. I like remake's faithfulness as well as atmosphere during its environments but the mansion in 1996 feels more like a lively place with more charming environments.
