Van Liew-Suydam House

The Van Liew-Suydam house, built in 1875, is a meticulously restored Victorian farm house that sits on the top of a hill, at the end of a shady, maple-lined drive, with cornfields on three sides. The front of the house and porch faces west and the back faces east, and both are beautifully lit by almost unobstructed, spectacular sunsets and sunrises. The backyard of the house has a stone well, a big lawn with a few mature trees, and there is a traditional red, 19th Century barn along the driveway. The interior of the house has original fireplace mantels and woodwork, and some 19th Century furniture, including a spinet piano, gas stove, and traditional Victorian, lace curtains. The main, first floor room is a wide open space with hardwood floors and windows on three sides. Antique farm and household tools (19th and early-20th Cen.) are available for use for projects on the Meadows Foundation stewarded properties only. As this is an antique property, we ask that any group that uses this property for their project exercises all due caution to protect the integrity of this very special, precious resource. A Meadows Foundation Board of Directors members will be on site to assist you at all times. Thank you for taking the time to visit our listing, we are very proud of this beautiful and unique house and property! The Meadows Foundation is a 501c3, nonprofit organization whose mission is to restore and preserve 18th and 19th Century historic sites, to encourage public appreciation for local heritage and vernacular architecture, and to support environmental efforts to preserve open space, farmland, and other historic sites. fb: @MeadowsFoundation ig: #TheMeadowsFoundationNJ
