I'm not positive that it's a TvF design, especially since it wasn't listed as one (he is popular in this area so you would think it would be listed) but considering the Wakefields were the builders and the house built in 1965 is near Rush Creek Village, it would lead me to think it was a TvF. There are definitely elements: windows, built-ins, fireplace and their grates, book shelves, indirect lighting and framed downlighting, kitchen cabinetry, that point to him. There are nearly 50 homes in RCV and not all of them are of the same level of workmanship, I have not been in even half of them but a couple that I have, have used drywall and seem cheaper versions. That said, considering the house is 55 years old, it is likely some work has been done to it.
If anything, the exterior form is more conventional than usual for van Fossen---isn't it ? I don't have his whole output in mind, as I haven't see it all. Very nice, in any event. Those weathered vertical boards on the street face (is the rest of the exterior wood painted ?) might be left alone, but I suspect they could either be sanded, or replaced, for the fussy customer.
