6614 Wildwood Way (Resource Number 0311, not pictured) was also built ca. 1940, and is representative of a very common interpretation of the Minimal Traditional style in Idylwood, which combines the stripped-down simplification of the type with a hint toward the Tudor Revival in the form of understated brick details. This version also has a slightly projecting eave, and a steeper roof pitch. The one-story, two-bay example at 6614 Wildwood Way is oriented toward the northeast. The house is wood frame, rectangular in plan, and rests on a pier-and-beam foundation. Clad in polychromatic brick, a soldier course runs along the roofline. The main block of the house is hipped, and a wide front gable projects from the northeastern façade. The two original paired one-over-one wood sash windows are plain but for the brick sills beneath, and a flat arch above the western window. An arched gable-end vent is placed at the front-facing gable. A small inset porch is created beneath the eastern end of the front gable, and a narrow brick arch as well as a low brick wall create a seating area. The roof is covered with composition shingles, and the closed eaves project from the façade, where a simple cornice has been placed. Landscaping at this house is understated, and consists of grass, trees, shrubs, bedding plants, and a metal fence at the side yard. The house appears to have had few alterations and retains its integrity. It 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 is also contributing.
