Kentuck Knob is another example of Frank Lloyd Wright's architectural genius. It is a small, one-story house in near the village of Chalk Hill in Fayette county with a natural and serene design that almost blends into the surrounding mountains and sits 2,050 feet above sea level. The native sandstone and tidewater red cypress used to build the house along with great expanses of glass help the house blend seamlessly into the surrounding nature.
From the house one can view a breathtaking panorama of the Youghiogheny River Gorge and the beautiful Laurel Highlands mountains that surround it. Kentuck Knob is just 7 miles south of Fallingwater and is currently owned by Lord and Lady Palumbo who keep the house open and inviting for those who wish to visit.
