The House of Captain Batchelder, then Briarcliff Farm for 4 generations, this historic Colonial is considered the oldest home in Baldwin. Built in 1784 to the highest standard of the day with original features still in place including wide pine floors, Indian shutters, mantels and fireplaces. Over 2800 sq ft of living space w/ 5 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, built-in cupboards, a good-morning staircase and high ceilings. The original kitchen with the pot hook still in the fireplace is now the dining room. A large functional kitchen with pantry has direct access to the garage.Mature landscaping, fruit trees, a farm pond, screened and open porches surround the home. A separate outbuilding known as the ''Wood Shop'' with a stone fireplace and ample light would be the perfect studio. Additional outbuildings include an equipment building with oversized garage doors and workspace. An additional 11 acres and farm buildings are available, to be sold separately, across the road from the homestead.
