6666 Fairfield Street (Resource Number 0027, not pictured) is an example of a more elaborate version of the Colonial Revival style in Idylwood, and was built ca. 1946. The two-and-one-half story, three-bay house is oriented toward the northeast, and is rectangular in plan. The wood frame house rests on a pier-and-beam foundation, and is clad in combed brick veneer. A two-story, one-bay wing extends to the east from the main block of the house. The lower story of the projecting bay is clad in the same brick as the main block, and the upper story is clad in false-bevel drop siding. The first-story windows are twelve-over-twelve wood sash, and those at the main block have brick arches. At the eastern and western windows of the second story of the main block, the windows are eight-over-eight wood sash. The central window is a four-over-four wood sash, with two-over-two sidelights. The windows have brick sills and applied shutters. Front-gabled dormers in the upper half-story contain six-over-six wood sash windows. The entrance to the house is beneath a two-story flat-roofed porch that extends the length of the main block of the house and is supported by tall fluted wood columns. The decorative brick door surround frames the original wood panel door with fixed glazed sidelights and a shallow fanlight transom. Covered with composition shingles, the side-gabled roof features narrow closed eaves and a simple cornice below. Brick chimneys stand at the eastern and western façades of the main block. Elevated above the street, the landscape features grass, hedge, bedding plants, and trees. A metal and brick fence borders the side yard. Little altered, the house retains its integrity and is a contributing element of the historic district. An original garage stands at the rear of the lot; it retains its historic form and function and also contributes to the historic district.
