Since the house was purchased by Ludwig Messel and his wife Annie, back in the 1890’s there have been generations of the Messel family living at Nymans, with the eldest son of Ludwig’s and Annie, Leonard, inheriting the house in 1915.
Leonard and Maud Messel, renovated the house to what it is today.
However, inn 1947, just 19 years after the house was restored at Nymans, there was a tragic fire that destroyed most of the house. What with rationing and restrictions on building materials, the house was never fully restored. It was made safe for the owners to live in. Today, it still stands as it did after that fateful fire.
