The Finchams desired a home to adorn the Arcadia neighborhood in a subtle manor. They wanted it to echo the original ranch home of its surroundings. The architectural influences are similar to Ranch Hacienda and Rural Mediterranean.

The Ranch Hacienda architecture is reflective of historical ranch heritage from rural Arizona and traditional Spanish Hacienda style homes. It is distinguishable by the prominent use of two primary building materials- stone and exterior plaster. This style projects casual informality characterized by the use of traditional clay tile roofs, timbers and exposed rafter tails.

Informal and asymmetrical rectilinear forms characterize the Rural Mediterranean style. Gable shed roofs create a charming country appearance similar to the old world vineyards. The primary façade and entry creates a friendly and inviting atmosphere.

Johnson Bank’s desire was to portray a very traditional image of established wealth.  The design, influenced both by early Arizona territorial buildings and by selected features of Pueblo Revival design, is characterized by a flat roof version of Spanish colonial design, expansive decks, and a tower with many stones the full thickness of the wall.

The full-width portal uses a simple beam and corbel structure which spans the spaces between columns.  The resulting arcades and the tower create the essence of the building’ front elevation.  Interior features include hand-scraped, walnut flooring over sleepers to create a hollow sound reminiscent of historic raised-hardwood flooring over joists.

Nestled in the upper Sonoran Desert, the Hill home appears to have existed for years amongst the desert sage, brittle brush, creosote and native mesquites. Constructed of mellowed adobe brick, tongue and groove, heavy Douglas Fir beam wood, and a richly rusted roof, this home projects a peaceful strength and quiet beauty. It appears to have grown from the land it sits upon, effortlessly facing the extreme heat, desert downpours, and beating sun. For those who live within, it offers a quiet refuge and safe haven.
Christy and Steven Hill engaged Clint to design a dream home that would capture the spirit of their environment, surrounded by saguaro and horse properties, and would reflect their simple lifestyle and native Arizona roots.
