1747 Idylwood Drive (Resource Number 0051, Photo 1) was built ca. 1940 and represents a small cottage form of the Colonial Revival style, a type found elsewhere in Idylwood. The one-story, two-bay house is oriented toward the west and features an asymmetrical façade wherein the front door is slightly off center. Rectangular in plan, the house rests on a pier-and-beam foundation with decorative cast stone foundation vents, and is clad in polychromatic brick veneer. The exterior brick features randomly protruding units that create a rusticated appearance. Each corner contains brick quoins, and a soldier course runs along the roofline. The windows are eight-over-eight wood sash with brick sills. The single entry features a decorative surround with a pediment, and the original wood panel door with fanlight. A concrete stoop extends from the entry. Decorative gable end vents appear at both sides of the house. The medium pitch roof features flush eaves with a simple cornice, and the roof is covered in composition shingles. The simple landscape contains grass, shrubs, trees, and bedding plants, with a metal fence at the side yard. The house has not been little altered and therefore retains its integrity and is a contributing element of the district. An original garage located at the rear of the lot is little altered and continues in its historic function. It therefore also contributes to the historic district.
