Château de Ferrières, Ferrières-en-Brie (Seine et Marne)

Château de Ferrières was built between 1855 and 1859 for Baron James de Rothschild by Joseph Paxton. The inspiration for the design was Mentmore Towers in Buckinghamshire, England, the house that Paxton had built for Baron James's cousin, Mayer Amschel de Rothschild.
