Parkman Terrace // 1892

Parkman Terrace, of the stunning Beaconsfield Terrace apartment buildings in Brookline was built in 1892 and was one of the last two completed. A divergence from the more Chateauesque designs that predated Parkman Terrace, this building followed a more classical Federal Revival design. Designed by the architectural firm of Fehmer and Page, the block of six attached rowhomes is 3-1/2 stories high, and is symmetrical with a central closed pediment with a shield bearing the date of construction. There are gabled pedimented dormers, a decorative cornice, and porticoed entryways with Corinthian columns. At the second floor are Palladian windows in blind arches, as well as round-arched window with keystones.
