The Aces Youth Home (ACES) will hold its fourth annual Holiday Tour of Homes in Jasper. Presented by Piedmont Mountainside, this year’s tour will take place on Sunday, December 3rd from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m. and will feature a home on South Main Street in Jasper, a historic commercial business (former home) on West Church Street, three homes on the west end of the county, and a tour of our very own Aces Youth Home located at 133 Cares Drive in Jasper.
Our featured home for this week will be the home of Ron and Tamie Odom located at 511 Stoneledge Drive in the beautiful Stoneledge Subdivision. This home had construction begin in 2008 as the first model home in the Stoneledge Subdivision. Sadly, along came the recession and the housing market crash.
The project was tabled, leaving the home almost finished but languishing until 2013 when a new builder took over and completed the home. The Odoms are the third owners who bought the house, “sight unseen” in 2021 in order to move to the area from Texas.
Tamie says, “I was born in Bermuda and have lived many places but I have never felt at home until Jasper.” The home was a welcome surprise with its custom touches, large kitchen and crown moulding throughout.
Tamie is a professional artist and retired interior decorator so it didn’t take long to begin redoing the home inside and out.
It’s had the interior repainted, a swim/spa with double decks added (built by the owner, Ron) lighting and flooring changes and more. She says there’s always plans to improve and an artist studio looms in the future. Some of the more interesting touches in this home include the artwork collection amassed while Tamie owned Sparrows Gallery. Ron built a swing and log rack which will also impress the crowd.
