Kentuck Knob

Only 15 minutes from Frank Lloyd Wright's famous Fallingwater  (and 90 minutes from Pittsburgh) is his lesser known Kentuck Knob in the beautiful Laurel Highlands of western Pennsylvania. (Kentuck Knob is still a private residence so photography was limited.) The view below was where the property owners expected Wright to position the house. They were surprised when the plans indicated the house would be set back in the trees. Wright explained that the view was too grand and they would tire of it. There's some wisdom in that. Kind of makes you work for it. Keeps it special.
