Love love LOVE the brick fireplace in the kitchen! I wonder if that is original to the house?
Have a peek at the soft white master bedroom:
My favorite room in the house would have to be the “river room”…
So named for the impressive views of the North River.
(Did you notice the sleigh coffee table? Love it!)

The ONE turn-off about this stately home is its name.
I have no idea why – and I’m sure there is a good historical reason – but the name of this home is “Exchange”.
Yes, you read that right. “Exchange”.
Not, the exchange, or the waterfront exchange or something with some poetic flourish. It is simple called Exchange.
