6716 Fairfield Street (Resource Number 0035, not pictured) was built ca. 1946, and is a typical example of the two story Colonial Revival type in Idylwood. The house is oriented toward the northeast, and is rectangular in plan. The symmetrical, three-bay house rests on a pier-and-beam foundation with decorative cast stone foundation vents. The exterior of the wood frame is covered in combed brick, with random placement of bricks set at a 45-degree angle. Two shallow, rectangular, one-story bays project from both the eastern and western sides of the main block of the house. Above these bays are balconies with a simple iron railing. The principal windows of the house are six-over-nine wood sash windows on the first floor, with six-over-six windows at the projecting bays and upper story, and a four-over-four window above the entrance. The windows have brick sills, and applied shutters frame the windows of the central block. The original wood panel door is framed by a decorative stone surround. A small stoop at each of the side bays provides access to entrances through original glazed wood doors that are covered by small shed-roofed awnings. Covered in composition shingles, the side-gabled roof features gable-end vents, closed eaves, and a decorative scalloped cornice. The slightly elevated landscape contains grass, old-growth trees, shrubs, and bedding plants. The house retains its integrity and is a contributing element of the historic district. An original garage is at the rear of the lot; it retains its historic form and function and also contributes to the historic district.
