Kentuck Knob

 
 

Foreshadowed by the world famous Fallingwaer, Kentuck Knob is the "other" Frank Lloyd Wright home in Fayette County. None the less, Kentuck Knob is a supurb example of Wright's genius from a later period in the famous architect's life. Wright's signature style is abundantly obvious and dramatic. Yet comparing Kentuck Knob to Fallingwater is comparing apples to oranges... they are very different structures in quite different settings.

A common comment from visitors is that "I could live there," when referring to Kentuck Knob. It is very "warm and homey" compared to Fallingwater. A hexagonal theme, openness, and the abundant use of cypress wood througout contribute to its livability.

It's owner, Lord Peter Palumbo of Walbrook, England, has allowed opening its doors to the public since 1996 due to his infrequent visits. Not only will you experience the Wright structure, you'll also be able to appreciate many fine works of art owned by Lord Palumbo. You'll also enjoy the grounds surrounding Kentuck Knob with beautiful landscaping and whimsical works of art (including a section of the Berlin Wall).
