Fillmore Terrace // 1890

The third Beaconsfield Terrace rowhouse building constructed on the Knapp Estate in Brookline was the stunning Fillmore Terrace. Constructed in 1890, and designed by Carl Fehmer, the building comprised of seven rowhouses was the only designed in the Dutch Revival style. The large wall gables have volute buttresses and pinnacles of limestone. The first floor is of fieldstone, the upper floors of yellow brick. Records indicate that by 1893, Knapp had sold all seven of the units, with early owners comprising: three merchants, a banker, a sugar broker, and a teacher.
