In 2010 we salvaged the entire Corbett House kitchen for a planned LEED home project. It was designed by John deKoven Hill. The 2501 Grandin Road home was House Beautiful’s 1960 Pace Setter and is considered the culmination of Frank Lloyd Wright and John deKoven Hill’s collaborative designs. View slide show of the exterior of the home. We aren’t going forward with that project so we are offering the kitchen for auction to benefit the Architectural Foundation of Cincinnati. Read more about the kitchen at the CITYBEAT article by Steven Rosen, “Saving a Modernist Cincinnati Kitchen.”

The entire kitchen by John deKoven Hill was saved except for a refrigerator and two dishwashers that were not original. Here’s a slide show of the kitchen removal day. All of the advanced NuTone appliances are included.
