Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: The Owners of the home are Paul & Laura Bentz. We immediately fell in love with the home the first time we saw it. It was easy to see that the restiration would be a quite a project due to some neglect and the fact the home is 240+ years old! The Home has been painstakingly remodeled and updated and elegant but comfortable furnishings added. The home really is something to see whether you love old homes, history, or just want to relax or entertain in the Finger Lakes. After the Revolutionary war the land and subsequently the home that was built was given to the original owner as a land grant. Soldiers of the war were often given large amounts of land in lieu of compensation for their time spent in the military.

Why the Owner Chose Cayuga:
Paul and Laura fell in love with this property when they first saw it on a Sunday evening during the Spring of 2013. They decided to rename the property Osprey Manor because a beautiful Osprey flew over as they decided to acquire the property. The elegance and history of the property revealed itself over the following months as the couple began to bring the property to its current beauty.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Amenities, and Location, Location, Location. No other elegant historic private executive rental home 30 miles from Syracuse, 50 miles from Rochester, 40 miles From Ithaca, 9 miles from Auburn, 5 miles from Seneca Falls, and 11 miles from Aurora.
