Property Description

2569 N Wahl Ave, Milwaukee, WI 53211-3825 - Built in 1899, this home was the first house to be constructed on prestigious Wahl Avenue according to the North Point Historic District. Its designed and built for John Kern who took over from his father as president of Eagle Flour Mills which became one of the largest in the country. The senior Kern retired to their farm on Humboldt Avenue near Capital Drive, which later became known as Kern Park. The home was designed by the architects Crane and Barkhausen, who designed many of the mansions in Milwaukee at the time. The design was heavily influenced by the German New Renaissance Revival style which was reminiscent of suburban German villas of the time. The brick and sandstone home are adorned with exterior detail further enhanced by ironwork by Cyril Colnik on the two front doors and porte-cochere.The Kern mansion is said to have contained the city’s first individual room air conditioning system. Ducts carried cool air throughout the house where separate thermostats-controlled shutters. These are the same Johnson Control thermostats that made history at the Pfister Hotel, which became the first hotel to offer individual controls in every guestroom. The home has been lovingly restored offering a unique blend of old-world craftsmanship with the features that accommodate a modern lifestyle. You’ll love being nestled in a beautiful tree-lined neighborhood of special homes and walking distance to Lake Michigan, Lake Park, coffee shops, Boswell Bookstore, The Downer Theater, Café Hollander, Stone Creek Coffee, and so much more!
