Kernu is a village in Kernu Parish, Harju County in northern Estonia. It is located in the southwestern part of Harju County and is a neighour to Saue, Keila, Vasalemma and Nissi parish in Harju County and Kohila, Rapla and Märjamaa parish in Rapla County.
Kernu estate was established in 1637. The current building owes its stately neoclassical appearance to a thorough renovation executed 1810-1813, possibly by the designs of renowned Helsinki architect Carl Ludvig Engel. The front façade is dominated by a richly decorated portico, while the side facing the park displays a 4-column half rotunda, unique in Estonian architecture.
