103 Talbotts Lane
Hot Springs, Virginia
This six acre historic estate is located across from
the nation's oldest original first tee at the Homestead Old Course in
Hot Springs, Virginia. The property includes two fenced "broad lawns"
bordering a tree lined drive of maples and Norway spruce. This
beautifully preserved and restored neoclassical mansion was built circa
1910 and features 15 rooms (totaling approximately 5,700 square feet), 5
bedrooms, and 4.5 baths with extensive entertainment areas inside and
out. The grounds are landscaped with mature boxwoods, perennial gardens,
tall rhododendrons, dogwoods and shade trees. What was once a finishing
school for young ladies is now a grand Bath County treasure.

BROADLAWN ARCHITECTURAL DESCRIPTION
Taken from the Virginia Historic Landmark Commission Survey ca. 1980
Broadlawn, built circa 1910, is a good example of a country estate
designed by the Georgian or Colonial Revival style popular in the early
20th century. It is a spacious two story house with an irregular plan
which is basically square with a rear servant's wing and sun porches
flanking the main block. The most distinctive feature is the double
story Doric portico with full entablature consisting of a plain frieze,
bracketed modillions and a molded cornice. The tympanum is adorned with
festoon decorative trim around a bull's eye window. The portico
entablature extends around the entire building. The portal surround also
exhibits fine craftsmanship. It includes fluted modified Corinthian
engaged columns which flank the door and divide the transom into three
lights. The sidelights have paneled aprons and are flanked by fluted
pilasters. Both the transom and the sidelights have decorative wood
tracery. The engaged columns and pilasters support a full entablature
consisting of a paneled frieze with sunburst medallions, dentils and a
molded cornice. Above the entablature is a wrought iron false balcony.
All windows are 6 over 6 double sash with architrave trim and first
floor windows have decorative flat window heads with cornices. Unusual
marbleized wooden spandrels are located between windows on separate
floors. Both sun porches are two story additions, each adorned with
paneled pilasters and aprons. French doors and windows on the first
level have transoms above.
On the interior, the main first floor rooms are paneled. Paired fluted
Doric columns usually mark room divisions. A double flight stair with
simple balustrade is a central feature of the interior. A full
entablature surrounds the rooms. Elaborately carved wood mantels have
sunbursts, egg-and-dart motif, and floral designs. French doors into the
dining room have elliptical fanlights above.

Details of the 2009 Exterior
The exterior of the house was totally
caulked (every possible crack and opening), primed with Latex receptive
primer, and then two coats of Sherwin-Williams "Duration" latex paint
applied. Either lifetime or 25-year guarantee on the paint.
wooden "skirt" where the clapboard of the house meets the foundation was
replaced with Spanish cedar, primed and painted.
The left front
column (as you face the house) was taken down, rebuilt with mahogany,
primed and painted. The base of the right front column was also re-built
with mahogany, primed and painted. Drainage holes in the concrete bases
were re-established in all columns. Multiple ventilation holes with
covers were established in all columns to prevent moisture accumulation
All sunroom windows, doors and thresholds on
first and second floors on the north and south sides were reconstructed
with mahogany, new glass and all hardware removed, re-worked and
repolished into working order.
New storm windows were custom
built and placed on all house windows including the sunroom doors, door
side windows and half round windows above the sunroom doors. Door
screens were custom built to replace the sunroom door storm windows for
use in the summer time.
The front porch crawl space was sealed
with plastic cover and the porch completely replaced with composite
boarding (no rot, no deterioration). The porch and steps were primed and
painted with latex paint.
The exterior back door into the mud
room was replaced.
