Stunning Victorian-Inspired Home at 160 Southern Hills, Ford’s Colony

Welcome to 160 Southern Hills, a meticulously crafted Victorian-inspired home in the coveted Ford’s Colony community. Built as the dream home of Garmin and Marilyn Hansen, this residence reflects their passion for history and elegance, seamlessly blending classic Victorian aesthetics with modern comforts.

A Vision Brought to Life

Garmin and Marilyn Hansen, history enthusiasts from Chicago, envisioned a home that would capture the charm of the Victorian era. They collaborated with an architect and renowned builder Bruce Livingston to create this all-brick, 2,650 square foot, one-level ranch. The home also includes a bonus room and full bathroom upstairs, situated above the two-car garage.

Prime Location and Lot

Nestled on a .46-acre lot in Southern Hills, the property offers both privacy and convenience. It’s a short distance from the News Road entrance of Ford’s Colony and just over a mile from the Monticello Marketplace Shopping Center, which includes Publix, Target, and the vibrant amenities of New Town. The home is elevated on a gently sloping lot, providing a stately presence above the street, and is surrounded by beautifully landscaped grounds and a private backyard with a wood deck.

Interior Highlights

  • Welcoming Entry: Step inside to find hardwood floors throughout most of the living spaces, 9-foot high ceilings, and rich, dark-stained moldings and trim.
  • Great Room: The foyer leads into a spacious great room, featuring a French door that opens onto the deck. A striking mantle from an 1890s vintage home in Chicago adds a unique historical touch.
  • Dining and Kitchen: To the right of the foyer is the elegant dining area. The adjacent kitchen is well-appointed with ample cabinetry, a pantry, and a bay window that provides a cozy eating nook.
  • Primary Suite: One wing houses the primary bedroom suite, complete with a tray ceiling, twin walk-in closets, and an ensuite bathroom with hardwood floors and a jacuzzi.
  • Guest Wing: The other end of the home includes two guest rooms with a full bathroom in between.
  • Additional Features: Next to the kitchen is the laundry room and access to the garage. The upstairs bonus room, ideal for a second master suite, includes a full bathroom, walk-in attic storage, and charming arch windows.

Seller’s Favorite Features

The Hansens have cherished the cherry-stained hardwood floors, continuous run wood crown molding, and solid oak doors with rosette trimwork throughout the home. Additional highlights include:

  • Two master suites with ensuite bathrooms.
  • Arch windows in the living room and upstairs bedroom suite.
  • Stainless steel appliances and cherry cabinets with granite counters in the kitchen.
  • Hardwood floors in the first-floor master suite and high-grade carpeting in the other bedrooms.
