Up for sale : the family mansion of French foundry owners who cast the bronzes on Nelson's Column

PARIS - April 12, 2021 - PRLog -- It is little known that the bronzes of Nelson's Column were cast at a foundry… in the suburbs of Paris. The heirs of the foundry's owners are selling their family property, located in the Marne countryside east of the French capital, making this an opportunity to claim a quirky piece of British History.

In the 1970s, the last member of this dynasty of industrialists, which spanned three generations, acquired a beautiful Napoleon-III-style mansion where he could get away from the bustle of the metropolis, yet easily return to his factory. Nowadays, the French capital can be reached by train in 40 mins, or 50 mins by the motorway. Nelson's Column, incidentally, only predates the house by a few decades.

Set in a small hilly valley in a village of historic and cultural value once home to the novelist, songwriter and critic, Pierre Mac Orlan, the mansion retains its original decoration including a large 19th century mosaic on the entrance floor, fabric tapestries, with its back overlooking a terrace and a long and very large garden ending near a small stream. The property, now on the market for the first time since it was last acquired, also includes a countryhouse that the captain of industry had built as a summer retreat.
