Both dramatic and serene...

...the house, situated just below the crest of the hill, appears almost part of the mountain itself and stands 2,050 feet above sea level. Cantilevered overhangs and great expanses of glass effortlessly integrate the inside with the outside.

Wright adapted his philosophy of organic architecture to a modern world and called this style 'Usonian'. Designed on a hexagonal module, Kentuck Knob is a 2,200 sq. ft. Grand Usonian home.

Views of Kentuck Knob

Kentuck Knob is an extraordinary interpretation of Wright's Usonian ideals. Constructed of native sandstone and red cypress from North Carolina, the house naturally blends into its surroundings.

The house is complete with built-in furniture, indirect lighting and semi-enclosed spaces. At its core stands the fully functioning kitchen, with the house's two wings rising to meet the horizontal line of the copper roof.

Just beyond the back patio is a breathtaking view of the Youghiogheny River Gorge and the beautiful Laurel Highlands.

Kentuck Knob stands at the confluence of the principles of organic architecture pioneered by Wright. Today, the interior and exteriors reflect the ownership of the Palumbo family, whose commitment to preserving the genius of Wright's Kentuck Knob is unswerving.

"No house should ever be on any hill or on anything. It should be of the hill, belonging to it, so hill and house could live together each the happier for the other."

- Frank Lloyd Wright
