Selover mansion in Moravia sold to local broker

A decaying historic mansion in Moravia has been sold to a local real estate broker.

Michael DeRosa purchased the Selover mansion from sellers Jack Charles Du Mars and Rosanne Irving for $30,000, according to Cayuga County property records. DeRosa closed on the 83 Main St. property on February 18, 2022 through his newly-formed Selover Mansion Inc., according to The Citizen. The property’s current market value is $43,000.

DeRosa said he purchased the mansion property in hopes of selling it to someone who will restore it. He has prior experience in selling historical properties, including Auburn Castle and the Seymour estate in Auburn.

The mansion gets its name from William Selover, a Moravia stone mill owner who built the 5,054-square-foot structure in 1865. DeRosa plans to launch a Facebook page where community members can post pictures, stories, and other media related to Selover’s long history.
