FAIRFIELD — Mid-century modern homes are often considered an intersection of architecture, art and nature. Among those whose residential designs fit that description are renowned architects Frank Lloyd Wright, Philip Johnson, and Marcel Breuer, all of whom left their signature in the Fairfield County landscape.
A lesser-known name left his mark on a two-acre level property at 30 Spring Hill Road. The owners of that lot selected a California contemporary ranch-style design created by Donald J. Scholz (1919-1999) and hired his building firm to custom build their home in 1962. That house is on the market for the first time, and its new owners will live within the walls of a home attached to Scholz, a man who was named one of the 20th century’s 100 most influential figures in the residential building industry by Builder magazine in 2000, according to www.fhho.org, the website for the Forest Hill Homeowners, Inc., a neighborhood in Ohio that includes homes designed by Scholz.
