1712 Idylwood Drive (Resource Number 0043, not pictured) was built ca. 1950, and is typical of the low, linear form of the Ranch style that was suitable for the wider lots along Idylwood Drive. The one-story, three-bay house is oriented toward the east. Clad in buff brick, the asymmetrical wood frame rests on a slab foundation. The eastern façade features a brick porte-cochere on the southern end, banded one-over-one hinged windows over a brick drip course in the center bay, and casement windows in the northern bay. The northern and central bays are divided by a shallow brick cheek wall that extends from grade to the underside of the eave. The entrance is at the northern end of the center bay, and consists of a wood slab door set within a plain surround. The roof is a low-pitched side gable covered in composition shingles. Wide overhanging eaves extend the entire width of the house. The simple elevated landscape consists of grass, hedge, shrubs, and younger and old-growth trees. The house has had few alterations; it retains most of its integrity and is a contributing element of the historic district.
