Dorothy “Dort” and Richard Mollett were in their mid-thirties when they purchased Antrim. Their passion for restoring multiple beautiful historic homes in the Baltimore area led them on this journey. They invested a tremendous amount of energy into the restoration of Antrim 1844, with two children and two dogs in tow.
The lovely estate and mansion had been deserted for more than 50 years and none of the heating, plumbing and electricity were functional. It was empty of any furnishings and the grounds were totally overgrown. The Molletts’ vision originally was to renovate the exquisite Greek Revival Mansion and live there while operating a small bed & breakfast. Richard instinctively became the General Contractor overseeing the restoration while Dort contributed as an Interior Designer.
