What I Love About The Home
The historic house located at 411 North Wentz Street in Macon, Macon County, Missouri is a sprawling old Queen Anne nested away in Macon County. Built in 1875, this Victorian beauty still has many of its original touches ? including extensive breathtaking woodwork. The style of architecture and history are both intriguing and important to the local community, as well as its inhabitants. Having been previously vacant for a number of years and left to decay prior to Patrick Lilley acquiring the house, it has been robbed of its finesse by time and the elements. The front fa├žade with the diamond designs on the front, the patterns across the second level, the wrap-around porch, fine craftmanship in the delicately carved banisters, the columns and inlay around the fireplaces are all true to the time period. Reroofing and air conditioning/heating addition have been completed. This historic house is a landmark.
