Wright nestled the crescent-shaped Usonian house into the side of the hill and oriented it to catch the best light throughout the day. Kentuck Knob’s materials—native sandstone, Tidewater Red Cypress and a copper hipped roof—further merge the structure with its surroundings. Bernardine Hagan described the Kentuck Knob experience as truly being at one with nature. In 1986, having lived in the house for over thirty years, the Hagans sold Kentuck Knob to Lord and Lady Palumbo of London. The Palumbos are deeply committed to preserving Wright’s residence and maintain an active tour program for the public.
