About host

The Eakes House On South 8th

HI!  I'm Tammy.  My husband and I grew up near Oxford and both attended Ole Miss. We now live on the MS Gulf Coast. Our oldest daughter is in school at Ole Miss. Our younger daughter is still in High School on the Coast.

We have wanted to purchase property in Oxford for 30 years. In 2022 we finally did it! We are so excited to own this beautiful historic home and can't wait to share it with you.

I am obsessed with old homes. Purchasing an older home is not usually the most wise investment decision, but I just can't help myself. There is something about walking through the doors of a historic home that just delights my heart! I daydream about the lives that have been lived in the homes and the memories that have been made in the past as well as the ones that will be made in the future.

This particular home is close to my heart because it sits next door to the house my husband and I had our wedding rehearsal dinner in over 25 years ago in 1997. If you had told us back then that some day we would own this home we would have surely thought you were crazy. Naming this home, "The Eakes House on South 8th", calling it OURS is truly a dream come true for us... a dream that took many years of hard work and saving to fulfill and we are thrilled to share it with you!

The Eakes House on South 8th is an Oxford treasure not only because of location but also for it’s unique architectural style. It boasts a Cape Cod style with Colonial Revival influence and is unlike most traditional historic homes in the area. The home was built in the 1930’s. In 2022 the home was completely remodeled. The exterior architectural design remains while the interior has been updated to accommodate our modern lifestyles.
