It is surrounded by mature cedars, oaks, pines, magnolias and pecans. Fifteen foot tall camellias grace the ends of the front and back porches. This home, originally built around 1850, was dismantled in 1948 piece by piece, moved to the present site and reassembled. The framework of the house is of hand hewn timbers held together with hickory wood pegs. The lack of building materials during World War II was reason this old home was rescued and reconstructed by my father. He and my mother spent their lives working on Hill-Over and through the years were always changing and improving it with items salvaged from other historical homes that were being demolished in the Selma, Alabama and surrounding Dallas County area. The original kitchen, now separated from the house by a covered breezeway, was converted into a charming family room (or office) with an oversized fireplace. Several of the original mantels were replaced with more attractive ones. The staircase, changed three times, is now as shown in the photos. The floors are beautiful, hand-planed, random-width heart pine as are the walls in the kitchen and breakfast area. The back upstairs porch has wrought iron grill work taken from the original Dallas County court house. My fathers barn was always full of window shutters, mantels, doors, newel posts, etc. as he salvaged these antiquities before most people recognized their quality and precious value. Hill-Over is 2 hours SW of Birmingham, Alabama, 45 minutes W of Montgomery and 15 miles S of Selma (nearest WalMart). It is 4 miles SW of the country community of Sardis (post office and caution light). It sits on a beautiful country road lined with cotton fields, southern pines and other antebellum homes. Hunting enthusiasts take notice! This black-belt area of Alabama is known for its wild turkey population and trophy-class white tail deer hunting. Access to the Alabama River is within 5 miles and affords excellent bass, catfish, and crappie fishing as well as water and jet skiing. The sugar white beaches of the Gulf of Mexico are less than a 3 hour drive to the South. This picturesque, peaceful home on 56 acres, including a scenic pond and old barn, awaits a family longing for horse pastures, country living, and wonderful neighbors. What is your dream? A picture perfect horse farm? A beautiful hunting retreat? Raising your kids in the country? All of this and more is afforded by Hill-Over in a beautiful and traditional Southern manner.
