6625 Meadowlawn Street (Resource Number 0139, Photo 2) was built ca. 1928, and is one of the first houses constructed in Idylwood. The one-story, three-bay, side-gabled house is oriented toward the southwest, and is rectangular in plan. It rests on a pier-and-beam foundation. The asymmetrical façade is clad in polychromatic brick, and a soldier course runs beneath the roofline. The eastern and central bays constitute the main block of the house, while the western bay is an arched porte-cochere. The eastern bay contains a small, steep, front-facing gable, two one-over-one wood sash windows with brick sills, and a tall decorative brick chimney. The chimney features a decorative inlaid brick arch, alternating stepped projections, and a decorative cap with two clay chimney pots. The central bay contains a front-facing gable above a double-arched brick porch. An arched gable-end vent with whimsical wood shutters is at the top of the gable. The inset porch features a picture window. Covered in composition shingles, the side-gabled roof has closed eaves, and a simple bargeboard and cornice embellish the roofline. The landscape is understated, consisting of grass, shrubs, small trees, and bedding plants. The house has not been subject to incompatible alterations, 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.
