The Kern House

5 Bdrm


A 1920 "Mediterranean Revival" on the market, listed by Scott Campbell of RE/MAX United.


On Lake Drive, just north of the Kenwood/Lake Drive/Lincoln Memorial intersection. This is blocks from UWM and with it's semi-circular driveway provides easy access to Lake Drive.


This lovely Lake Drive "Mediterranean Revival"-style home began life as the Jessie and John F. Kern House. The Kerns ran a Mill in Milwaukee and originally lived on Wahl Avenue. They moved north to this home in 1924.

We love the big living spaces in the first floor of this home - the foyer (with a big staircase), the huge dining room, the living room with the fireplace and all the windows... totally lovely. We assume most of the woodwork was a darker color at one point - we think it looks great (and modern) updated in white.
