Description

Before there was a Falling Water, there was Lynn Hall.

The Lynn Hall property, along with the nearby cottage, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and is a prime example of Organic Prairie architecture.

It was designed and built by Walter J. Hall –– a self-taught practitioner of the style –– who is best known as the builder of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Falling Water. Originally conceived as a road side inn and restaurant, the main building features a large great hall perfect as an event space. The 3000 sq ft upstairs has been fully restored as a private living area with spectacular views across the Allegheny River valley — 65 feet of running glass windows to be exact.

The 560 sq ft former restaurant space serves as a great hall with large fireplace on one end is perfect for large gatherings.

The former families living quarters at the other end of the building features a separate entrance with 3 bedrooms (with the same view), kitchen, living room, bath and laundry room. An additional master suite with a living room has its own entrance accessed via a stone bridge over the front water feature planted with a collection of Japanese maples.

The guest cottage on the hill behind Lynn Hall, features 2 bedrooms, one bath, large open living area, kitchen, laundry room and a large family room. The cottage was designed by Walter’s son, and established architect, Ray Viner Hall. The cottage was the prototype for RVH’s distinctive Allegheny Modernism found throughout NW Pennsylvania and Western New York. 

The immediate property has been landscaped with fruit trees, specimen plants and 5000 daffodils. Hidden in the 14 acre woods, is the original quarry where the slate to build the home was hand selected. Over the past 80 years, mother nature has softened it into a beautiful grotto feature.

The property sits on historic Route 6 (the original trans-continental highway) that sees many tourist en route to historic sites including the Allegheny National Forest.

Recent interior renovations include new plumbing, natural gas radiant heating, commercial-grade electrical update. The chef’s kitchen includes commercial grade 6-burner gas oven and premium Bosch appliances. Custom designed mahogany cabinetry where inspired by original designs found in the original restaurant kitchen. Insulated windows in main living area. Oak flooring and restored original slate flooring throughout. Historical glass block “curtains of light” have been preserved to draw light into the interior spaces. An unused corridor has been transformed into a large wine cellar.

Master bath includes designer vanity system with glass glazed lava stone tile and open spa shower. Premium Brizo fixtures.

Recessed LED gallery lighting throughout complimented with solid brass accent fixtures.
