Broadlawn
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 Renovation Project

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.

The 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 inside columns.

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.
