Property Description

Welcome to the historic Kern-Schmidt Mansion, now restored to its original splendor! This magnificent home combines the rich and elegant neoclassic architecture and design with the lively and bright style of the modern age. The stately presence, surrounded by a wrought iron fence sets the stage for the luxurious interior, as the entrance opens to the grand ballroom, now a large great room used as a living room and dining room combined. The ceiling is embellished with an intricate leather belt fan system, a functional work of art. A lovely over-sized fireplace with the original mantel and design graces this room as well. There are two waiting rooms on either side of the entrance, now used as "home offices", and both have floor-to-ceiling windows converted from the original doors. The kitchen, a professional chef's dream, has been expanded and completely remodeled with custom cabinetry, as well as colorful custom imported tile floors. High-end professional appliances include a Wolf range with Thermador hood, Miele dishwasher, built-in Sub-Zero refrigerator and separate built-in Sub-Zero Freezer, Sub-Zero two-drawer refrigerator, Miele custom professional espresso machine/coffee maker, wine cooler/beverage refrigerator and separate ice maker. There is a moveable entertainment bar that coordinates with the kitchen, perfect for entertaining, projects, or displays. Stairs from the kitchen lead to both the 2nd floor as well as the basement. The original library, now family room, can be found on the opposite end of this expansive home. It has a gorgeous stone oversized fireplace with French doors surrounding the room like windows; with an inset for built-in shelving or an art display. The sunroom graces the end of the home, bringing the outdoors inside. Large Pella windows and doors with integrated blinds lead to the expansive patio which surrounds the house itself and is perfect for relaxing or entertaining. Dual grand staircases lead to the 2nd floor of the mansion, housing all five bedrooms, and four full baths. The primary suite boasts a large bedroom with a spacious walk-in closet complete with built-in organizers. The exquisite spa bath provides an aquatic feel, with artisan tile flooring, a 1900's claw foot soaking tub, shower, two Stark stainless sinks and low voltage lighting. The windows are electric security windows that are clear or opaque with the push of a button (all light switches are push button, reminiscent of the period)! The four additional bedrooms are generous in size; one is a mini suite. There is also a loft on this level that could be used as a reading area, an exercise area, or whatever one might choose. Finally, the walkout lower level has a large recreation room with a full bath, as well as a generous laundry room. There is a workshop, and a room with a magnificent stone fireplace, ready to be finished. This level of the home is as interesting as the rest. This is where the horses were originally housed; and it is now a heated area which shelters the air conditioners and serves as great storage space. The three-car garage is generous as well; and leads directly into the home through this area. If this isn't enough, this local historic landmark, the Kern/Schmidt Mansion, with a southern exposure, is situated on just under an acre of land where hundreds of parties have been held, and memories made. Continue the memories here at 300 Lexington Court as you make it your own.
