Property description



O'KELLEY'S FARMHOUSE IS AN EXCEPTIONAL LOCATION TO GATHER AND ENJOY THE COMPANY OF FAMILY & WONDROUS BEAUTY OF THE SMOKY MOUNTAINS. WE ARE LOCATED JUST AT THE FOOT OF MOUNT PISGAH & THE BLUE RIDGE PARKWAY. A SHORT 20 MINUTE DRIVE TO DOWNTOWN ASHEVILLE.

A memory making vacation is awaiting you nestled in the heart of the upper hominy valley where you will find an 'antique retreat' at the O’Kelley farm house. Renovated in 2008, the farm house is over 100 years old. Situated on 16 acres,the home is adorned with memorabilia from the O’Kelley family along with interesting novelties and antique accents.

Our home is located just moments from the Blue Ridge Parkway and only 20 minutes from Downtown Asheville, where you can find just about anything to do that your heart desires. Or, you can simply enjoy the farm for its own unique charm. May we suggest passing your time by: rocking on the porch, sitting under the outdoor pavilion watching wildlife, building a bonfire and toasting marshmallows, listening to the nearby creeks, or just enjoying the magnificent view of Mount Pisgah. Walking trails are also located nearby.

To add to the unique charm of the home, we have updated the matresses, but kept the original iron beds & springs and many other pieces of the history that have made this home so special. We have tried to renovate in a way that adds modern conveniences with old time charm. The home, complete with a large kitchen and a spacious dining room that will seat up to 10 people, is a perfect place for an old fashioned family gathering.

This old farm house is so dear to our family. We hope that you and your family will come here and spend time making memories of your own. Call or email us today to plan your old fashioned family vacation.

NOTICE! We rent to families and responsible adults only. No house parties and No Pets! No DaExceptions!

Year Purchased: 1900

About: Barbara O'Kelley Burnette & Dan O'Kelley

Why Asheville:
This home belonged to our Grandparents Frank and Texie O'Kelley. It has been in our family for over 100 years. We wanted to be able to share it and let others enjoy a little bit of history.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
We are very convenient to Asheville & The Blue Ridge Parkway. Easy to access but still far enough out to get away from it all. 16 acres of pasture to roam around in.
