6723 Park Lane (Resource Number 0237, Photo 6), built ca. 1950, is a typical example of a small Ranch style house built for the 50-foot-wide lots in Idylwood. The one-story, three-bay house is oriented toward the southwest. Clad in random ashlar native Texas Austin limestone with wood shingles at the gables, the asymmetrical wood frame sits on a slab foundation. The rectangular plan features an attached one-car garage at the western bay, and a side gable with a front-facing gable over the center bay. The window in the central bay consists of a fixed, central steel picture window with casement sidelights and transoms. The eastern bay contains steel casements with transoms. Austin limestone sills accent the otherwise plain windows. A flat-roofed porch with decorative wrought iron supports shades the eastern bay and the entrance, which is through a single replacement wood panel door. The roof is low-pitched and covered in composition shingles with shallow closed eaves. The house has been little altered, retains its integrity, and is a contributing element of the historic district.
