6669 Fairfield Street (Resource Number 0028, Photo 5) was built ca. 1938, and represents a time when the Minimal Traditional type retained subtle references to the preceding Tudor Revival style. During this period, roof pitches were lowered and the details were simplified, as seen at 6669 Fairfield Street. The one-story, five-bay house is oriented toward the southwest and is rectangular in plan. The wood frame rests on a pier-and-beam foundation with decorative cast stone foundation vents. Buff brick veneer is accented by a soldier course at the eave, and at the upper portion of two front-facing gables at the eastern and western projecting bays. These bays extend from the side-gabled main block of the house. A three-bay, inset porch is created from the extension of the eave between the two projecting bays. Windows consist of steel casements, which stand at the two projecting bays, as well as in the central bays. Brick sills accent the windows. The low-pitched roof is covered in composition shingles, and the closed eaves moderately project from the façade. Slightly elevated above the street, the landscape consists of grass, young trees, and bedding plants. The house appears to have few alterations and retains its integrity; it is a contributing element of the historic district. Also contributing to the district is the original garage at the rear of the lot, which retains its function and form.
