Although not technically terraces, Ellsworth Terrace (1912), St. James Terrace (1915), and Roslyn Place (1916), combined types of row houses with duplexes and detached dwellings. The concept of the terrace was to provide selective housing at moderate cost. The selectivity of the developments came from their vague 'arts and crafts' architecture and their aristocratic-sounding names. The developer of Roslyn Place, Thomas Rodd, went so far as to pave its roadway with rare wooden blocks to help create this effect."
